When I think construction, I feel excitement and a bit of fear.
When Jessica and I decided to develop our new concept Philux Home over a year ago, I felt the same thing. My heart started racing because of the numerous ideas and plans I had; however, deep down, I was also worried sick about all the humps along the way while making our passion project happen.
Here we are, one year later, opening our showroom. It was designed by us, project managed by us, and each piece in the showroom sourced by us.
I still feel excitement and fear because of the risk involved; however, I also feel immense gratitude. Gratitude towards my parents who allowed us to make this happen and steer our own course; gratitude towards the people who guided and supported us; and most importantly, gratitude towards Jessica, my partner, and the Philux team of young driven individuals who are equally as passionate about the project as we are.
Below are some photos of the construction experience (we had are ups and downs!) and the vision behind Philux Home.
I hope to see you in our new space!
PHILUX began as a passionate endeavor by it's founders incited by their love for country,fascination for local Philippine materials and a commitment to excellent quality. The creation of every furniture piece is inspired by the preservation of age old milling and assembly techniques using sustainable woods, clamps and dowels. The process is slower but more intricate and methodical. From two carpenters, PHILUX has grown into a hundred person team and is one of the leading manufacturers and retailers in the Philippines today.
