For the second and last installment of our department store shopping series, we went to Crossings Shangri-la Mall and Landmark Trinoma.
I visited Crossings at Shangri-la and found lots of interesting items. They’ve upgraded their home section. Before, there were only a few furniture pieces displayed at Crossings. Now, they are really keeping their home section alive and bright – especially with the accessories. There were a lot of interesting vases to choose from! I think their theme now with the vases is “coral reef.” The downside is that there were more interesting accessories than furniture pieces. I guess it also matters that the space they’re occupying is very limited. They can’t really display many big items.
Overall, though, the pieces available at Crossings are worth a second look. They’re also very affordable and they have frequent half-off sales. Here are my finds:
clockwise from upper left: droplight, P2,698.00; table lamp, P1,238.00; dining set, P19,998.00; pillow, P349.75; metallic vase, P1,779.75; queen bed, P23,198.00; arm chair with ottoman, P11,800.00; green container, P1,108.00; green vase, P1,439.75
Ms. CFO was the one who visited Landmark and here’s what she found:
“There were a lot of great finds inside Landmark, but these were mostly home accessories. You can choose from a wide variety of lamps, photo frames, and bathroom accessories. I found the designs of the floor lamp and tray quite unique and affordable. For the big items such as the sofa set, the bed, and the dining table, Landmark had very limited choices, most of them either had a similar color palette or design.”
clockwise from upper left: bed frame, P11,999.75 / bed (orthopedic), P10,719.75; photo frame, P259.75 (set of 3); floor lamp, P1,099.75; tray/organizer, P249.75; L Type sofa, P10,000.00; dining set, P9,900.00; bath organizer, P199.00
