As creativity and comfort go hand in hand, Commune Home Philippines launches the Rover, their newest addition to their growing furniture collection. True to their brand ethos, the Singaporean furniture design and lifestyle company officially unveiled the Rover last Sept. 12, at the EDSA Shangri-La Plaza.
Established in 2011 in Singapore, Commune’s philosophy is deeply rooted in sustainability, coming from a belief that “no person nor environment should be compromised in providing quality furniture.”
In line with this is yet another milestone as they reveal the Rover: an ensemble designed to take comfort to another level. Inspired by the adventures in the outdoors and environment appreciation, the Rover seeks to spruce up your home with its bold hues and warm tones.
“More than anything else, I take pride that our pieces are meant to be lived and experienced by our customers. You can go to the store, sit on our sofas, test our tables, and feel what Commune is all about,” says Gerry Alava, COO Commune Home Philippines.
When host Shamcey Supsup-Lee asked what makes Commune Home different, Alava mentioned about it being sustainable and eco-friendly. “We want to be a part of the solution as we believe our furniture is like ‘art for every day.’ Quality, well designed, artisanal and sustainable woodcraft.”
Agreeing with Alava, architect and former Miss Universe 3rd runner up, Supsup-Lee also emphasized, “Filipinos often feel guilty about owning wood furniture at home so we settle with alternatives. But it’s nice to know that Commune Home offers style, comfort, and value. Along with their furniture coming from ethically sourced materials.”
During the event, guests were able to experience the new collection through the various vignettes displayed onsite, together with Supsup-Lee, Commune Home Philippines’ brand manager, Audrey Ngui, also shed more light on the new collection. “When you see Rover, it immediately takes you back to those trips outdoors, adventure with friends, and well-kept stories over bonfire nights,” says Audrey.
“The rustic-modern collection, with its clean and dignified lines portraying a classic and stately feel is designed to be a glamorous reminder of the leisure class. The traditional, rich, dark and warm color palette captures the flavor of owning a heritage, laidback country home,” adds Ngui.
