First look: Pottery Barn opens at Bonifacio High Street
Posted on

I didn’t even know there was a super typhoon until my FIFA body clock woke me up at 2 AM and I saw a message that classes were called off on all levels.
The typhoon itself hadn’t hit Metro Manila by noon, so I thought it would be OK to go to the Pottery Barn opening at 3 PM.
Luckily, no traffic. All the billboards had been rolled up in anticipation of Typhoon Glenda.

The first Pottery Barn in the Philippines and Southeast Asia is located at Bonifacio High Street’s Central Square.
The two-storey flagship store includes Pottery Barn, plus Pottery Barn Kids and Pottery Barn Baby on the second level.
It’s the first time we’re seeing doors like these at the mall.

The doors finally opened after a countdown by host Issa Litton.
Here’s what you’ll find on the first level: everything for the living room and dining room and table top.
I started on the right and was immediately attracted to the white items beginning with the plates, napkins and table cloth

The prices are good, if you ask me. I bought the Caterer’s napkins (set of 6) for Php 1450. On the US site they are $29 or about Php 1260. I don’t mind paying Php 190 more, since I save on taxes and shipping.
This is a great place to have a bridal registry, just in case. They have cutlery and silverware

You’ll find many products made in the Philippines. I bought this wooden serving board for Jeroens’ cheese and steak. Not bad for Php 2450.

So basically, you’ll need an hour or two to look at everything because once you’re in, you don’t know if you should look to the left or right.

I’m just thankful they opened in July and not in December, otherwise we would be panic buying for Christmas.
This is a great place to shop for newlyweds, babies, new homes, birthday gifts, or anyone who loves home improvement.
Pottery Barn is now open at the new Central Square, Bonifacio High Street.
