Din­ing Area

YES! (Philippines) - - Cover Story -

The in­dus­trial theme con­tin­ues in the din­ing room, which has min­i­mal decor but plenty of func­tional pieces, in­clud­ing (1) a bar cabi­net, stocked with liquor from Aljur’s friends; (2) a cus­tom-made mood light fix­ture, also de­signed by Di­rek Richard; and (3) a dark wood din­ing ta­ble, which can seat from eight to 14 peo­ple.

“Eto ’yong mga kainan ng mga blue-col­lar na ma­bil­isan ang tra­baho, mga con­struc­tion work­ers sa States, ganyan,” says Aljur, re­fer­ring to the ta­ble. “Pag ku­main kasi sila, isang up­uan lang, ’ta­pos di­retso na ’yon. Palit lang nang palit. Hindi ko talaga siya plano na magkaro’n ng, alam mo ’yon, ng tatam­bay.”

Now that he’s got a fam­ily, the new dad says that the din­ing setup might have to be changed to a more for­mal one.
