“When we were thinking about what to call our shop, we decided to create a fictional place where one can find beautiful pieces for their home,â says Vianca Anonuevo-Favila, one-third of the interior designers behind Empire Designs. Aside from the locally manufactured furniture pieces, their selection includes throw pillows, crystal glasses, lamps, and even coffee table books and artworks.
The secret to the success of interior designers Mark Perez, Vianca Anonuevo-Favila, and JC Arcega collectively known as Empire Designsis continuous growth. Constantly seeking to expand their boundaries, the trio has recently launched Harver Hill, where custom furniture designs find their place amidst accessories sourced from across the globe. âœPutting up a customized furniture shop has long been our dream as interior designers,â says Vianca. âœIt has always been part of our long-term goal to be able to create an empire in all aspects of interior design from construction down to furnishing.â
The local lifestyle boutique is a product of collaboration, one that begins from a client’s vision for his home and ends as bespoke creations anchored on international standards. Harver Hill’s luxurious aesthetic is in line with Empire Designs’ residential and commercial projects, which feature lush materials and exquisite finishes like brass, stainless steel, copper, mirror, glass, and solid wood. While their first collection is comprised of Art Deco-inspired furniture decked in neutral colors, the best thing about Harver Hill is that anything can be customized to your liking. âœWe do not want to promote Harver Hill furniture as our designs,â shares Vianca. âœWe just help our clients, as well as their respective designers, create the pieces they have visualized for their spaces.â
“We believe that the furniture speaks for itself,â says Vianca. Harver Hill’s simple interiors manage to highlight each of the items on sale that even if further customization is welcome, you’d be enticed at once to purchase the furniture pieces off the floor.
