Solid wood dining table and chairs

Flashback: the magazine page with a photo of the dining chairs I wanted.

Dining room furniture design

Thirty days later, the dining set was delivered together with the living room furniture and bar stools.

Custom-made dining table and chairs in Philippine mahogany

Why not a design with cushioned backrests? Ventilation, of course. This is the tropics where people sweat nine months out of every year. The cushioned seats are removable and so are their covers so they can be washed every few weeks. I’ll order a second (and maybe even a third) set of covers — one in summery colors and another in Christmassy colors.

Again, the furniture maker is MRT Furniture, Lifetyle section, second floor of the Greenhills Shopping Center. Their main showroom is in Bo. Batik San Pablo, Telebastagan, San Fernando, Pampanga.

    They used to, Tina. Don’t know if they’re exporting again. But you can ask them: Landline is (045) 322-0912. Mobile number is 09176473827.

      Price is reasonable. :) More expensive than most ready-made ones but less expensive than designer brands.

    I would like to inquire if you are satisfied with the workmanship/quality of the made-to-order dining set.

      The wood, yes. The cushions, no.

        Thanks for the prompt response. Since the dining set was ordered in 2008 and after four years would you still recommend them? I saw their store in Greenhills and my husband and I are planning to order from them a 6-seater dining set.

          Yep, I would. Just don’t order cabinets from them.

            Really? plan to order big cabinets from them to house all our linen and shoes (upper and lower). Since the cabinets will not be visible anyway, I don’t want to buy expensive ones and feel that their prices are reasonable. What is your complain with them re cabinets? So I can instruct them to “tutok” that part.

          • http://casaveneracion.com/ Connie Veneracion

            They short-changed me. We agreed on solid wood and they used plywood on the cabinets. No amount of “tutok” can fix that.

    Hi Ate Connie,
    I love the clean line design of your dining room furniture. Do they ship here in the US?

    They need a website to show off their products :) . Thanks for the phone info Ate Connie.
