A Grateful Christmas: Opulence Design Concept Celebrates the Holidays in Style

To celebrate the Yuletide cheer, Opulence Design Concept introduces luxurious Italian pieces that will liven up any home.

Luxury beyond the senses is the core vision of Opulence Design Concept. That is, by bringing famous Italian brands to the Philippines. For the dynamic husband and wife team Gerry and Jinky Sy, there’s nothing more sophisticated than Italian craftsmanship in every home.

Luxury in Every Home

Since its beginnings, Opulence Design Concept has been bringing Italian luxury home furniture, home décor, and appliances to the Philippines—adding a wealth of sophistication to every home. “Pieces showcased by the concept store are bound by these common threads: elegant design, practical use, technical innovation, as well [as] unique style,” shares Gerry, adding that understanding what homeowners want and need in their homes remains their North star.

“It is enough that a piece of furniture, fixture, or decorative object would look beautiful within one’s space. It matters equally that [these] pieces offer smart solutions and added value to daily activities or on-goings in various private spaces,” he continues.

Inside their gorgeous showrooms is a range of famous Italian names for almost every part of the home. For the kitchen, there are dinnerwares from Versace by Rosenthal, tableware from Sambonet and Thomas, as well as entire modular kitchens by Stosa Cucine.

For sophisticated furniture and walk-in closets, Misuraemme is a go-to choice, while Fornasetti provides art to decorate the space. The entire home, on the other hand, can also benefit from Vimar‘s home automation systems, wiring devices, and switches for ease of movement, along with Samsung’s offerings.

Curated and Stylish Pieces

These prestigious brands all have a carefully curated place in Opulence Design Concept’s lineup, as each one brings a unique and stylish brand of opulence that’ll elevate life in people’s homes. For example, Fornasetti brings the vivid imagination of its founder, Piero Fornasetti, to people’s homes with gorgeous imagery that defined art in the 20th century—all while managing to marry style and practical function.

Meanwhile, Versace by Rosenthal translates the familiar essence of the famous brand onto Rosenthal’s penchant for simple shapes by turning them into functional pieces like dinnerware, giftware, and stemware. On the other hand, Misuraemme is deeply rooted in tradition as it makes use of three generations’ worth of knowledge to craft high-quality pieces for the home.

Their secret? Working closely with fellow masters of their crafts like architects and brilliant design minds to bring Italy’s very own village, Briana to the world stage.

Practical Style and Function

Stosa Cucine also employs brilliant design techniques for its collections. With the kitchen being its domain, ergonomics always come first to allow for ease of movement in every space. This is just scratching the surface of how each brand brings its own uniqueness to Opulence Design Concept—with room for more like newcomer Sandonet and Thomas by Rosenthal, as well as a new home opening soon at The Podium in order to aid their goal of “[having] a piece of opulence in every home.”

All these brands are fit to live in your home year-round. But this Christmas season, Opulence Design Concept is giving everything a touch of seasonal cheer with “A Grateful Christmas”—a Christmas tree lighting event held in collaboration with Tablelove by Pinky.

“Every year Tablelove by Pinky creates our beautiful and breathtaking Christmas tree and décor in our showroom. This year, together with Tablelove by Pinky, we will be lighting the Tree of Hope with special guests Dr. Vicki Belo and Marian Rivera,” Gerry shares excitedly.

A Grateful Christmas

Their holiday look consists of two symbolic trees, the Fornasetti Tree and the Versace tree, styled by yours truly. They are a symbol of hope—meant to inspire everyone, especially children this holiday season. Likewise, this tree lighting ceremony hopes to embody that message in the best way that it can.

And as part of A Grateful Christmas, the theme isn’t complete without concrete action. Part of the proceeds of the event will go to the Reception and Study Center for Children of Quezon City, a home for abandoned and abused children.

Moreover, the organizers hope that these actions and the message they send out allow our grateful hearts to keep shining and that we may never lose our ability to give each other hope. That is, in addition to sharing our blessings with the less fortunate and praying for a COVID-free Christmas season.

Opulence Design Concept’s tree-lighting ceremony, “A Grateful Christmas,” was held last November 18, 2021—together with special friends who supported the cause of giving back. Truly, Opulence Design Concept is your go-to place for luxury living with a heart.
