Hacienda Crafts at Manila FAME
WGSN-homebuildlife reports live from Manila FAME in the Philippines, highlighting three of the trends from the event:

Cool Wave: Furniture and accessories look futuristic and at the same time organic. Objects have fluid lines and roundish shapes. Natural materials like coco shell and water lily are fused with metal and wire

Sheer Black: Black lines are gracefully interwoven on furniture and lighting fixtures. Black looks light and transparent with see-through effects. The elegance and drama of black is made easy in abaca, buri and crochet

Rich Textures: From natural luminescence to metallic bronzes, decorative objects have rich and shiny surfaces. Gold works as a neutral and is paired with white, black or bronze. Shell surfaces are enhanced with texture, grooves, and patterns
