NOW that staying home is part of the new normal, it would be a good time to do some redecorating — “zhuzh” things up a bit, as designer Carson Kressley would say. Since we spend majority of our time at home, it only makes sense to make it as stimulating and appealing as we can. Luckily, there are plenty of online businesses in Cebu selling homeware to feed our appetite for pretty little things to add to our nooks.
If you’re planning to do a little shopping (or just browsing for now), check out these brands and their products that will surely spark joy in your home:
Raspberry Girl PH | @raspberrygirl.ph
With sustainability in mind, Raspberry Girl PH advocates responsible consumerism through its line of homeware fashioned from durable and long-lasting acacia wood. From plates and bowls to serving trays and cutting boards, the brand is always on the lookout for locally- and exceptionally-made products and sharing them with the rest of Cebu.
Eleven.ph | @eleven.ph
Heavily inspired by the beauty of natural forms and fluidity, Eleven.ph is an evolving brand of special and functional resin homeware. All of its products are handmade and customizable, allowing both the artist and client to collaborate and produce truly unique and deeply personal pieces. More than just elegant decor, these are pieces that hold stories and spark conversations.
Taurus Cebu | @taurus.cebu
Taurus’ offerings run the gamut from tableware and home decor like ceramics and furniture to dainty knickknacks that add that touch of personality a space (or photo) needs. Hand-picked and meticulously selected, Taurus hopes to find new homes for reused and repurposed pieces.
Plantmama.co | @plantmama.co
