antique and modern mash-up

image

A few months ago, we were on the search for furniture to rent for a tv commercial and found ourselves at our suking tindahan antique furniture store again. the items we wanted were not in the shop so our contacts led us to the showcase house behind the shop.

We found this pewter and floral-printed fabric upholstered set we liked and a pair of stools in velvet that we needed for the commercial. i also took the opportunity to explore the house and rediscover its charm.

a lot of antiques are lovingly displayed here along with contemporary art from local artists. the big painting is probably a john santos piece.

obviously a tun piece.

One of angelo tabije’s paintings displayed in this bedroom (the one near the window). This was a finalist to metrobank’s annual art competition. at one point i actually wanted to have this but i didnt have money to buy it. oh well.
