Quirky Finds For The Home

I was just tweet, tweet, tweeting when all of a sudden a store I’d not heard of tweeted back to introduce themselves and their shop. They are called Heima Store and are based in the Philippines (I know far from home, über depressing) and I just adore their products and pretty website even though most of it I could never afford to have shipped to me. You have to check out their gorgeous selection – it’s very much my style so of course I fell in love at first click.

Fun Furniture Finds

It’s a little Anthropologie meets Danish design meets Liberty London with a touch of San Francisco if I’m even making sense here! LOL! I love, love, love the Aunt Georgia chair. I mean, I love it. Did I mention I love it?

But the sexy little chair that I lust for even more is the Holly Day chair. Yes, Holly Day! I’m really in to gray with splashes of hot pink right now so Holly Day makes Holly’s Day for sure. I’ve been into hot pink since July of 2010 actually, but the love affair has only intensified as time goes by. Gray + Hot Pink = my current living room that I’m working on. I also love the sweet Ms. Pea, she would be beautiful in my bedroom. She’s a little edgy but still traditional and she minds her manners.

Fun Furniture Finds

In addition to fab chairs, they have other furniture items and interiors accessories as well as a series of sweet e-mags that they create around their shop offerings which seem to change frequently.

These chairs and painted wood things REALLY get my creative wheels spinning… I don’t know about you, but I’m in love with some of this stuff and want to try adding a quirky chair to my living room and a fun painted dresser to my entryway, el pronto!

    Oh, my goodness! I grew up in the Philippines, and I have never seen design like this over there! I mean, Filipinos are incredibly creative and artistic, so this should not surprise to me– these pieces are just so fresh and wonderful, and it’s fun to see really modern design coming from Manila.

    It’s great when a shop presents its products in a clever, well-styled way. These shots are so appealing! I feel I’m in a bakery, comfortably seated, eating a delicious slice of cake. Or back in primary school but only with good memories!

    So many inspiring ideas. I spot some IKEA fabric in there so maybe some of these looks are achieveable too :) And for the Aussies, that last image features a ceramic rabbit lamp by Have You Met Miss Jones (they are designed in Australia and manufactured in the Philippines – available here online and at stockists). They are really lovely quality.

    I just love those little boxes. If only my boyfriend would allow such girlishness in the living room, since I have no room to call a workspace. Perhaps I should just set up a little room divider :)

    Love the upholstery, the fabrics and patterns on the chairs are adorable, especially the miss pea wing chair. Oh and the Life is A Party neon light on the site is just screaming out to be on my wall. I would never have associated these styles with the Philippines, always like to be surprised though. Stumbling across sites like this (and yours in my case) reinforce the idea in my mind that procrastination can be rewarding ;-)
