Departures & Arrivals was set up by Filipina Denise Kaur, who took a shine to the works of Filipino deisgner Ito Kish, in particular. But apart from Kish's contemporary furniture, the carefully curated store also stocks a beautiful mix of furniture and decor accessories from all over the world. Examples of what you can find here are handwoven graphic rugs from India, an industrial wheeled coffee table, modern woven stools with bold colours and motifs, and peculiar animal sculptures by Filipino designer Lilianna Manahan (one of Maison & Objet Asia 2014's Rising Asian Talents).
It all makes up a "global eclectic look", which Denise hopes she can use to teach others how to bring different aesthetics together. "I want people to realise that their varied tastes can work well together. A home should always be a little bit of who you are, and what you aspire to be," she says.
