The Happening: 50th Manila F.A.M.E. International

My girlfriend and I love us some beautiful furniture. So there was no way we were going to pass up the golden installment of Manila F.A.M.E. International, the country's premiere design show which featured contemporary takes on classic home essentials.

So glad we caught it this time!

The whole event showcased the immense talent of Filipino furniture makers, one that is so sophisticated that I was left in awe at the craftsmanship of many of the pieces on display. It makes me wonder though why we aren't more known worldwide for our awesome furniture. Anyhow, I will now leave you to gawk at but a taste of the beautiful things we saw today.

Quirky Mushroom Lamps

The golden angel wings were a witty addition!

An asymmetrical love seat

Some words I'd love to post on my wall

A fresh take on rattan weaving

This would fit in well in the country home I don't have

I wanted to share a lot more snaps with you all, but some exhibitors are really timid (see paranoid) about their works, so drop by next year's April edition if you want to see the goods for yourself, up close and personal!
