Check Out This New Home Decor And Design Hub In Makati!
This October 2018, a new home décor and design hub opened its doors to the design-conscious and design-enthusiasts in Metro Manila, offering quality and top-of-the-line products that will give character to any home or space. The lifestyle store, XCEPTION, sheds a new light to form and function with signature pieces from globally recognized home and lifestyle brands, including VIPP (Denmark), Octaevo (Spain), Serax (Belgium), and Emeco (USA).
The team behind the home decor and design hub believes in the power of pieces that stand the test of time. Whether because of sturdiness, functionality, or character, the items and pieces housed in the store would remain classic and iconic. The common thread that connects the goods that the design hub carries is the utility of the products. Generally, they all serve some form of purpose beyond standing in as decoration.
The XCEPTION team knows that its main customers have unique tastes informed by global interests, so they keep up to date with the things that pique their creative inclinations, and the design trends in Europe to the classic stores in Tokyo and North America.
The store in itself is a design inspiration with its industrial look. Raw construction materials such as concrete, metals, and glass make up the space. The neutral colors and rawness of the space highlight the curated items from the brightly colored toilet paper to the huge art prints at the home and design area downstairs. Also inside the home and design section is a mini café for shoppers to get thirst-quenchers as they go around the store or to rest at for a bit.
Upstairs at the fashion section, two huge fitting areas anchor the space, where trendy pieces from big fashion names come together. From dressy designer garbs to edgy streetwear, one will definitely find his or her cup of tea. While the selection during the opening were limited, the team assures that more items will be up for grab in the coming months.
While the hub is a shopper’s haven, it is also open for workshops and events. Farther downstairs, an events space, which they call the Space, is available for rent. During the launch of the store, it was dressed up with comfy poufs and chairs, and a popcorn machine on the side. The bareness of the space enables it to adapt to different styles and layouts.
XCEPTION is located at the G/F of The Biltmore, 102 Aguirre Street, Legazpi Village, Makati City. Follow them on Instagram @xception.ph.
