CRATE & BARREL (www.crateandbarrel.com.ph) recently unveiled Portraits of Life, four interactive vignettes at its SM Makati Flagship Store. These curated spaces paint a picture of life at various phases and brought guests into the homes of a couple building a life together, a bachelor hosting a night with friends, a supermom and her growing brood, and a couple refurbishing what is now an empty nest.
Each vignette was curated to show how key pieces from Crate & Barrel can enhance and elevate everyday life at home.
THE BACHELOR’S PAD
LOOKING for something multifunctional? Beyond the usual man cave, the global lifestyle brand reimagines the bachelor life through pieces that are raw, edgy yet irresistibly sleek. The featured Phoenix Work Table provides a solid wood top on welded steel legs. Its width is sized such that it can be used for work, to display collectibles, or even to host get-togethers.
MOVING IN WITH YOUR PERFECT MATCH
Incorporating different styles? This space, designed with couples in mind, captured the beauty of two lives coming together under one roof. In this vignette, we witness how love, respect, understanding, and, yes, even compromise are expressed through design choices. These selections from Crate & Barrel serve not just the individual he or she; it celebrates the beauty of us.
At the heart of every couple’s first home is their bedroom. Of the many considerations to make, two are most crucial: storage space and choice of bed. The Caldwell Oakwood Upholstered Storage Bed by Jake Arnold ticks these boxes. Part of the exclusive collection by an Los Angeles-based designer, it is made with gentle curves, soft fabrics, and sinuous shapes. It also features a full-width storage concealed behind the footboard, ideal for keeping the bedroom clutter-free.
THE best choice for your living room? Supermoms do it all, and in a span of 24 hours, they wear various hats. This special tribute to mothers put the spotlight on essential living room pieces from Crate & Barrel that add joy to family life at home. This vignette was curated for dynamic mothers who have mastered the act of balancing their roles—in style.
It highlights the Gather Two-Piece Sectional Sofa, a centerpiece for living or play rooms, makes family bonding relaxed and comfortable. It features a performance fabric that’s soft yet durable, stain-repellent and family friendly.
Redecorating a space? As soon as the children have left the nest, the home becomes a place for couples to fully enjoy each other’s company while pursuing more dreams together. Far from being an empty home, these abodes, which hold precious memories, are refreshed to reflect a life fulfilled. Crate & Barrel reimagines an area in the home for empty nesters. Among the standout pieces featured was the Tate Walnut Wide Storage Bookshelf. With its clean-lined design made of walnut veneer, this piece is best for showcasing books, art and family photos while bringing the 1960s vibe right into your space.
