I rarely go around Makati due to traffic, so I was surprised to see that a Kenneth Cobonpue showroom had popped out in a very visible area like Greenbelt Residences. Finally we can see his body of work without having to fly to Cebu or go to Manila FAME.
There’s a show window at Pasay Road and there’s a more private entrance from inside the driveway of the building.
Knowing Cobonpue’s reputation as a world-class designer and his prices, even I felt intimidated to enter without my friend Patrice in tow. At first the young girls working inside seemed kind of snooty that you kind of just want to walk in and hurry out. I mean, it shouldn’t hurt to smile or even greet a potential customer right?
Good thing Patrice saw her friend Roselen Ocampo who works there.
She was nice and welcoming that was able to ask permission to take pictures of the beautiful showroom.
Opened last October 6, 2013, the two-level showroom sits on 423 square meters of space that is a collaboration among Kenneth and his friends—designer Budji Layug and Architect Royal Pineda, with styling by J. Anton Mendoza.
The first thing that caught my eye was the fancy mint green tricycle by the window
The showroom features over fifty styles of outdoor and indoor furniture designed by Cobonpue over the last 15 years.
It includes the iconic Bloom chair in yellow
and the Yoda chair in red
Bullet day I’m going to own some Chiquita stools, cleverly made of long pieces of cork
These pieces would complement covered outdoor areas
I call this the Doña chair
We also love the planters
and this oversized ottoman
Kenneth Cobonpue’s Manila showroom is located at the street level of Greenbelt Residences, San Lorenzo Towers, Pasay Road corner Arnaiz Avenue, Makati.
Open from Monday to Saturday from 10 AM to 8 PM, and Sunday from 11 AM to 7 PM.
For inquiries email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 576-1639 • 576-1642.
“I want to work for Vicki Belo,” Mich Dulce once said.
“Cause I want to pop zits!” Mich said.
Don’t we all?
I get so obsessed with zit popping—when it’s especially good, I like to replay the event over and over in my head.
I know right? Abnormal.
Anyway I found this video on Facebook. It shows some girls taking out a really huge, impacted blackhead on their friend’s skin. It is so gross, more horrifying than The Conjuring.
It also reminds me of removing Cedric’s earwax in 2009—you can read about it HERE.
Meanwhile, if you think you have the stomach for it, watch this till the end.
You have been warned.
