Funky furnishings to wow the abode

The wow factor is significant when entering a room. Whether impressing others with a vivacious personality or amazing fashion, or having the décor speak to guests as they enter, being the talk of the town can be exciting wherever one resides.

Adding a spark to set fashion apart from the norm can be fun.

  • Add a funky pin to accessorize your appearance.
  • Make a statement in the abode with a unique piece of art or a chair that will stand out as a conversation piece.

Kenneth Cobonpue has done just that with his unique furnishings designs.

Kenneth is the offspring of Betty Cobonpue, famous in her own right for designing unique rattan furnishings. In tune with true New Yorkers he studied at the Pratt Institute in New York and then returned to his home in Cebu, Philippines. There he integrated his worldly design knowledge and expertise with the “locally sourced organic materials and hand-made production techniques” of Cebu, creating modern masterpieces that add a punch to a room’s design. His unique designs have won many awards and accolades.

Every year Kenneth Cobonpue unveils a new design that is highlighted at design shows around the world.

His designs are eclectic, funky, comfortable, and true works of art that will add excitement to the abode’s décor and will be sure to create a buzz with guests.

The furnishings are eco-friendly created from natural fibers and materials and produced using hand-made techniques.
