‘Manila Liv­ing, Cal­i­for­nia Dream­ing’

Philippine Daily Inquirer - - PROPERTY - TESSA PRI­ETO-VALDES

There are just a few in­te­rior de­sign com­pa­nies in the coun­try that pro­vide com­plete ser­vices, from ini­tial sketches, se­lec­tion of fin­ishes to an im­pres­sive line of cus­tom­ized home fur­nish­ings and ac­ces­sories. Moss Manila and Moss Manila Home pro­vide all these ser­vices and more.

Moss Manila is re­spon­si­ble for pro­duc­ing stylish in­te­rior de­sign-driven events here and abroad and of var­i­ous res­i­den­tial, in­sti­tu­tional and hos­pi­tal­ity in­te­rior de­vel­op­ments.

Armed with years of ex­pe­ri­ence in pro­duc­ing three-di­men­sional de­sign en­vi­ron­ments, Moss Manila in­te­grates style, el­e­gance, and cre­ative per­fec­tion in all its ser­vices.

Moss Manila Home is the sis­ter com­pany that pro­duces ex­clu­sively de­signed fur­ni­ture pieces for its re­tail shop and in­di­vid­ual clients. It also works closely with skilled ar­ti­sans in the Philip­pines to en­sure ut­most qual­ity.

All fur­ni­ture can be fully cus­tom­ized. With a wide range of fab­rics and fin­ishes, each piece can be con­fig­ured to meet the clients’ dec­o­rat­ing de­mands.

For its third an­niver­sary, Moss Manila Home in­tro­duced its lat­est col­lec­tion in­spired by chic life­style of Palms Springs. Its new fur­ni­ture col­lec­tion is aptly called, “Manila Liv­ing, Cal­i­for­nia Dream­ing”.

The cre­ative women be­hind the brand are sis­ters Cyndi Fer­nan­dez-Bel­tran and Happy Fer­nan­dez-Vic­torino. On their lat­est trip to Palms Springs, the de­sign sis­ters were in­spired by the unique vibe through­out this de­sign mecca of Cal­i­for­nia.

They took vin­tage el­e­ments the desert re­sort city is known for and com­bined it with their sig­na­ture aes­thet­ics of con­tem­po­rary glam­our, thus cre­at­ing a col­lec­tion with fi­nesse eclec­ti­cism mak­ing it rel­e­vant to Manila’s grow­ing cu­rios­ity in all things stylish and cu­rated.

To cel­e­brate this mile­stone, Moss Manila Home col­lab­o­rated with three of its ex­ist­ing clients to cre­ate their own ver­sion of a Palm Springs-in­spired fur­ni­ture piece to com­plete the 10-piece col­lec­tion.

Guided by the key el­e­ments of pleat­ing, chan­neled tuft­ing, the stark con­trast of soft pink and rich green hues, vis­ual lin­ear chevron-like pat­terns and luxe ma­te­ri­als like mar­ble el­e­ments, Camille Co, Rissa Manan­quil Trillo, and yours truly, flu­idly trans­late the Palms Springs feel, cre­at­ing stand­out pieces that are unique, stylish and func­tional.

Camille Co

Hav­ing started her own cloth­ing line, Camille has al­ways been in­clined to the world of de­sign, fash­ion, and art.

She felt hon­ored and priv­i­leged to de­sign to­gether a fur­ni­ture of her own that speaks to her style. The chan­neled bench with a mini mar­ble ta­ble per­fectly suits her room and her needs.

“Mil­len­nial and func­tional” are few words she can think of to de­scribe the per­fect piece that com­ple­ments her room.

Rissa Manan­quil Trillo

The three words Rissa would use to de­scribe the bar cab­i­net she co-cre­ated are func- tional, mod­ern, and beau­ti­ful.

“Our home is like a lit­tle mu­seum, where even ev­ery­day things feel like lit­tle works of art. I didn’t want a fur­ni­ture piece that looked like a cab­i­net. I wanted some­thing that looked like a sculp­ture,” she ex­plains.

The art un­folds when you open the pan­els to re­veal wine racks, shelf space, and a mini bar counter. With a rich green piano fin­ish and cham­pagne gold legs, it’s def­i­nitely a fur­ni­ture piece that raises the bar.

Tessa Pri­eto-Valdes

Be­ing an in­te­rior de­signer my­self and hav­ing worked pre­vi­ously with Cyndi Fer­nan­dez-Bel­tran, one of the prin­ci­pal de­sign­ers of Moss Manila Home, this col­lab­o­ra­tion was a fun and nat­u­ral cre­ative process. My style is so eclec­tic. What Moss Manila Home does is put some sense, rhyme and rea­son to my space.

I have mul­ti­ple ideas, but they make them co­he­sive in one space, just like this piece. I chose a pink mar­ble top to com­ple­ment the white and gold chevron pat­tern on the cab­i­net doors. My love for en­ter­tain­ing guests in my home also in­spired me to cre­ate this piece and show­case my own per­sonal style.

Moss Manila Home Bou­tique store is lo­cated at 1 Gil­more St. Va­len­cia, Que­zon City. Their on­line shop will de­but to­mor­row, Oc­to­ber 15 2017 at www.moss­man­i­la­home.com. Fol­low them on In­sta­gram @moss­man­i­la­home.

To­day is the Red Char­ity Gala at the Shangri-La Ho­tel at the Fort. Moss Manila has gen­er­ously ren­dered its ser­vices for free to cre­ate sev­eral el­e­ments at the Gala. My co-chair Kaye Tinga and I are grate­ful for the spon­sor­ship of Moss Manila.
