Elegantly Laidback. Marguerite Lhuillier may have been designing furniture for years, but there is clearly no issue at being dated here. With Infini, Marguerite creates pieces that are classic, using indigenous materials to create classic furniture with a distinct Cebuano style.
Woven details and rattan furniture, the feel is sophisticated yet laidback, which creates a distinct elegance. Infini’s showroom is a charming tableau in itself, housed in a traditional-style house complete with capiz on the windows. The furniture is arranged in mini-sitting areas, with colorful vases, oversized baskets and other accessories displayed on various corners and niches.
Inside, the natural palette of wood and other materials are complemented by the natural light that flows in from the atrium in the middle of the showroom.SPACE
