One Roof, One Home



It started as a family-run business that exclusively distributes some of the popular names in the global furniture market in the Philippines through individual, mono-brand stores. Having captured the country’s premium mid-market segment of the home furnishing industry since 2009, the company takes the next big leap: putting all these coveted brands under one umbrella that is Modernbrands.

True to its name, Modernbrands aims to continue bringing beautiful and reliable home furnishing products through their in-house brand, Living Space, which brings forth a profusion of home pieces from around Asia; and eight other international brands such as Gus*, Innovation Living™, Flat Tech, Nordlux, Linie Designs, Novacucina, and Alf DaFre.


Back in 2011, when people were just starting to realize the value of responsible forestry and sustainability, the company was way ahead of the pack and has already brought in the eco-friendly brand, Gus* to Manila. Hailing from Canada, Gus* is one of the purveyors of saving the environment by using wood that are acquired from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified sources. In the same year, Modernbrands started to distribute Innovation Living™, a Danish brand known to be the “sofa bed specialist”. Embracing the modern, minimalist aesthetics, Innovation Living™ highlights versatile space-savers and convertible sofa bed solutions that can adapt to practically any spot in the living space. Just last year, another prestigious brand joined Modernbrands’ roster with the addition of the Italian premium kitchen specialist Novacucina. Its range of contemporary kitchen solution offers an infinite combination of materials, colors, finishes, opening systems, and kitchen furniture compositions to fit discerning tastes. Also brought in 2018 was the Italian furniture brand, Alf DaFre, which offers an extensive line of customizable modular wardrobe cabinets, dressers, and shelves. Each piece from Alf DaFre is delicately put-together by highly skilled and experienced Italian craftsmen. This guarantees diligent production, bringing high-quality furniture pieces that make a statement in the bedroom, study area, or practically anywhere in the home.

Other brands in the lineup include the Australian brand Flat Tech, which specializes in self-stabilizing table bases; Danish brands Nordlux (lighting) and Linie Designs (handwoven carpets by Indian artisans who perfected their skills through generations); and Recor, a Belgian company that offers a wide range of home pieces that promise all degrees of sleeping comfort.


With the re-launch of Modernbrands as an overall umbrella encompassing these nine impressive names in the furniture scene, customers should expect a more consolidated range of furnishings for the home in one stop. This gives them wider options in every showroom for them to easily mix and match according to their requirements and preferences, saving time hopping from one showroom to the other. To make it more experiential for clients, Modernbrands has increased its showrooms to include key cities in Metro Manila, Cebu, and hopefully in Davao in the near future. A team of licensed interior designers is also available for design consultations.


Gearing up for the next years, Modernbrands aspires to bring in more products from the world over to help homeowners in the Philippines create their dream homes.
