International retail chain Crate & Barrel opened its flagship store at the SM Annex in Makati City gathering together some of the country’s top interior designers, as well as home lovers and innovators. With its unique offering of quality and top-notch customer service, the store marks the brand’s flagship store in the Philippine market.
At more than 2,800 square meters, the new location is now the largest store in the Philippines. It showcases the brand’s “Shore” Spring Collection and other signature collection of houseware, seasonal accessories and a complete line of indoor and outdoor furniture.
As the Philippine flagship, the new store was designed with both the local aesthetic and customer convenience in mind. The architecture features attractive, understated materials such as warm-toned wooden siding, glass and brick for the exteriors complementing the cedar, pickled pine and painted white wood interior. Abundant entry windows shower the store with natural light and provide a dramatic setting for the brand’s collections.
For more than 50 years, Crate & Barrel has been the leading home furnishings destination for timeless style, vibrant design, and great value. Blending inspirational designs with practical home solutions, it offers the highest quality of products at an affordable price.
Expanding its global footprint worldwide with its stores in the US, Canada, Mexico, UAE, Turkey and Singapore, the brand has evolved into a Lovebrand, and become a source of inspiration for contemporary design enthusiasts worldwide.
Crate & Barrel opened its doors to the Philippine market in November 2014, as a franchise through SM Retailer subsidiary HMS Development Corp.
The flagship store in SM Makati is its third in the Philippines after stores at Mega Fashion Hall and SM Aura Premier.
