Pic­ture a per­fect week­end. En­joy­ing a few chap­ters or a cat­nap in the pa­tio, un­der the cool shade of um­brel­las the colour of sum­mer. Catch­ing up with friends over din­ner, in a room il­lu­mi­nated by in­tri­cate wire­frame lanterns. Or try­ing out the new­est recipes with the coolest equip­ment in the kitchen. With Crate and Bar­rel, the best week­ends are eas­ily the ones spent at home.

Pre­sent­ing an ex­ten­sive col­lec­tion of fur­ni­ture and home­ware, Crate and Bar­rel has be­come a mecca for beau­ti­ful con­tem­po­rary home de­sign. Its home­stores across the globe carry a wide va­ri­ety of styles, shapes, and sizes— fur­ni­ture in nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als and mod­ern ar­chi­tec­tural aes­thetics; bed­room linen in clas­sic colours, solid hues, and play­ful prints; and glasses and flutes for all types of drinks, to name a few. The brand’s im­pres­sive port­fo­lio also in­cludes ex­clu­sive pieces from col­lab­o­ra­tions with over 50 artists and de­sign­ers from all over the world. Each piece is unique yet prac­ti­cal and af­ford­able.

When it first opened its doors in 1962, founders Gor­don and Ca­role Se­gal made it their mission to pro­vide qual­ity de­sign at ex­cep­tional prices. Stay­ing true to this mission for over 50 years, Crate and Bar­rel has seen a con­tin­u­ous growth in its fol­low­ing. To­day its ex­cep­tional and af­ford­able de­signs are avail­able glob­ally, through home­stores in key lo­ca­tions out­side its US home­base—like Canada, Mex­ico, Dubai, and Sin­ga­pore—and its on­line shop­ping and ship­ping ser­vices to any­where in the world. Most re­cently, it opened its first Manila branch at the SM Mega­mall Fash­ion Hall. The store’s mix of items matches the equally eclec­tic tastes of Filipino home­own­ers and de­sign en­thu­si­asts. What­ever your style is—clas­sic, cheeky, min­i­mal­ist, or fancy—there is some­thing to dis­cover on the shelves of Crate and Bar­rel.
