By Pauline Joy M. Gutierrez– Contributor | Business Mirror

Furniture company Mejore marks reentry in the retail industry with the opening of its lifestyle concept store on Dela Rosa Street in Makati. The showroom features a complete line of home furniture, as well as carefully curated decor, home accessories, lamps, paintings and rugs.

They were involved in the lumber trade and, naturally, the company evolved into furniture retail.

Reviving the subtle femininity of American mid-century furniture as filtered through the prism of warm masculinity, a duality that marks the Art Deco period, the Duncan Hughes Collection underscores the designer’s keen understanding of form and scale. Each piece harmonizes pared-back historic shapes with lavish modernity while glowing with warm woods, metal accents, and rich, luxurious fabrics. Read more
