Thursday Interior Trinkets





Your basic capiz shell has been stuck in a rut with one design familiar to a lot of us, the 3-tiered hanging capiz chandelier. Goodbye to rut, it has been transformed and brought to new heights of ‘chicness’.







Under the hands of creative and innovative designers it is given a new style character. The story of the capiz is very Pygmalion like. A parallel to the mythological sculptor who wished life for the statue of a lady he carved out of ivory. To this unassuming raw material long used in house decor and jewelry…new life has been breathed into it…




From the sea this lowly marine mollusk transposed into works of functional art finding its niche in upscale interior spaces.  Proudly Philippines…  :)
