Featuring over 250 photographs and insightful commentary, this topical interior design book will add a uniquely Asian-Pacific element to your home. The Philippines is home to a new generation of craftsmen, including furniture makers, artists, sculptors, and weavers. They specialize in taking the indigenous materials of the country—pina, abaca, capiz shell, bamboo, rattan, to name a few—and producing contemporary items that would be as at home in a New York loft as on a tropical verandah. Harnessing both Asian- and Latin-inspired style and modern techniques, they produce a cornucopia of fine contemporary furniture and "authentic" furnishing items. In this sourcebook of decorating and shopping ideas, these objects are presented within metropolitan and rural present-day interiors. From furniture and furnishings to table settings and lighting, all the homes, many never photographed before, are accented with artifacts in modern designs. Tropical Interiors shows how Philippine style is clearly now a global phenomenon and can be applied to homes worldwide.

The Philippines has long been known for creative designs and furniture and for the sill of its artisans in crafting modern products from traditional materials. This book takes a giant step forward—into the realm of modern architecture and interior design. Twenty-five stunning homes showcase the best of residential design by a number of outstanding Filipino architects and designers. It offers a tour of stunning structures ranging from gracious pavilion-houses in elite subdivisions of Manila to elegant vacation homes of Batangas and Mindoro. Blending the graceful proportions of Asian design forms with the rigorous discipline and modernization of Western architecture, the houses retain an affinity with natural materials—warm hardwoods, rustic stone and slate, earthy clay and tile—at the same time introducing innovative use of glass, concrete, steel, and aluminum. Water elements and lush tropical gardens complete the transition from traditional conventions to Asian architectural fusion and international modernist trends.
