MANILA -- Furniture maker Moss Manila Home’s latest Resort Collection features an elegant revamp on classic furniture with modern details for a resort glam vibe.

The eight-piece collection is inspired by the posh style of Miami Beach and “the freshness of spring and luxe of summer.”

These pieces, be it a lounge seat or a bar cabinet, can be used as a main attraction in a home, radiating both timelessness and edginess.

The collection includes a Park Chair, a lounge club chair in crisp lines; the Lucite Boulevard Trunk Table with polished brass accents; Rockstud Butler’s Cabinet topped with oversized pyramid studs; and Soho Drink Table, an accent table using a signature pattern with Italian Carrara marble top.

The others are: Miami Ottoman, done with a lush, sheepskin-like fabric; Luxe Console and Luxe Side Table with beveled mirror and matte brass bases; and Octagon Mirrors with beveled borders in black and gold lacquer.

From floor plan to accessorizing, Moss Home Manila offers a wide range of fabrics and finishes applied to the customer’s preferred furniture for uniqueness and exclusivity.

Designing sisters

The home furnishing firm started as an interior and event design company in 2008 by designer Cyndi Fernandez and her husband.

They now dabble in home furnishing, together with Fernandez's sister Happy, who is an interior and textile designer.

The Fernandez siblings have been in the industry for 14 years. They obtained their degree in Interior Design in the College of Architecture and Fine Arts (now separated into two, College of Fine Arts and Design and College of Architecture) at the University of Santo Tomas.

Cyndi continued further studies in Design and Management at the Parsons School of Design in New York City, while Happy received a certificate of Merit in Recognition and Appreciation for Distinguished Service to the City of Beverly Hills and was featured in American Society of Interior Designers’ ICON magazine. Her signature patterns are copyrighted works registered at the US Library of Congress.
