Home furnishings retailer West Elm opens its first store in Southeast Asia today at Estancia Mall, Capitol Commons.
If you haven’t been there yet, Capitol Commons is in Kapitolyo, Pasig.
The new development is a lifestyle destination with residential and office spaces, a park, and the Estancia Mall.

West Elm in the Philippines is a partnership between the New York-based brand and Stores Specialists Inc., a member of SSI Group Inc.
It is known for furniture and home decor that combine modern design and traditional craftsmanship. Many of the products are results of collaborations with independent designers and craft communities around the world.

The 7,000 square-foot store showcases West Elm’s summer collection of furniture, beddings, bathroom accessories, rugs, window textiles and hardware, lighting, decorative accessories, dining, kitchen products and gifts.
At the Design Lab, customers can consult design specialists and space planners for free.

“We have found a really great partner in Stores Specialists Inc. and it seemed a natural extension because we work with Filipino artisans,” said Kerri Ackermann, Division Merchandise Manager for West Elm.
Ackerman said West Elm designers travel the world to look for artisans and communities to collaborate with, such as Filipino capiz artisans and weavers. West Elm has also worked with potters from Sto. Tomas, Pampanga for Linework vases.

“We are extremely proud to open West Elm in the country not only because we can offer Filipinos more design and quality choices but also because West Elm cherishes Filipino craftsmanship,” said Anton Huang, President of SSI Group Inc.
Also at the opening were Matthew Anderson (West Elm Global Visial Manager) and Ashley St. John (West Elm Visual Manager, Chelsea NYC)

West Elm showcases four collections—Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall—every year, so we can expect new merchandise every three months. Ackermann said however, the “heavier” materials and fabrics such as velvet will not be sold here.
“We really came here to understand the market so you’ll find that everything is lighter and more suitable for the climate.”
