Think global. Sell local. A brazen and ambitious manifesto for a furniture store – and one by which Home Mavericks proudly stands by.
The home furnishings and pieces on display in their showroom along Arnaiz Ave. (across New World Hotel) are exclusively Cebu-made and typically end up in the living spaces of design-savvy New Yorkers and Londoners. Quite often, the stamp of “world-class quality” associated with Cebu furniture pieces has become synonymous with being “for export only”. But Home Mavericks begs to differ: high-quality Filipino design should also make their way to Filipino homes, not bypass them. It’s an honest bid to democratize design, and an inspired way to celebrate Filipino ingenuity and craftsmanship.
Imagine coming home to your loft in Rockwell or The Fort after a hectic day and sitting back on a chaise lounge that you’d normally find in a West Elm or Ralph Pucci outlet in New York. Smiling, you close your eyes, adrift in domestic bliss. Priceless moments like this are what the folks behind Home Mavericks strongly feel that Filipinos are entitled to enjoy.
That Eureka! Moment evolved into a compelling business idea and, in 2007, together with fellow Cebuano entrepreneurs Eric Mendoza, Vincent Sandoval and Johann Escañan, Eric set up Home Mavericks. Its present location is a 200-square meter gallery of Cebu furniture hand-crafted with quality materials (mother of pearl, capiz, rattan, synthetic fibers, and various types of wood). It is also an official dealer of HunterDouglas shades, blinds and other window treatments.
In the same way, Home Mavericks is a work in progress – seeking out inventive ways to delight Filipino homeowners with a flair for style and luxury and to inject fun and personality to their living spaces. Evidently a furniture store with such a loft-y (pun intended) is taking one step forward to being “world-class”.
Home Mavericks is located at G/F 926 Arnaiz Ave. (formerly Pasay Road), Makati City 1223 (across New World Hotel). Call 844-9549 or visit www.homemavericks.com for more details.
