A Tour Around Kenneth Cobonpue Hive In Cebu

Aside from a luxurious stay at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Cebu, we were treated to an Island Arts and Crafts tour when we visited Cebu last week.

One of our stops was Kenneth Cobonpue Hive in Cebu, (Interior Crafts of the Island Inc.) the showroom of his world-famed furniture designs. It was like a trip down fantasy lane. How I wish I have all the money in the world to buy everything in sight! They are oh so lovely!

Who would have guessed that the nifty looking stool I so adored at the House of Vanita during the exclusive bloggers fashion show was a creation of Kenneth Cobonpue, the world renowed Cebu-based furniture designer who’s designs have been featured in box office movies and Hollywood TV series like Oceans 13 and CSI !

As soon as you open the doors to the showroom, this lovely attractive piece of steel-weaved galvanized lounge chair will greet you.

The Brangelina lounge bed!

The Brangelina bed was a little over Php100,000, and the Brad Pitt chair was around Php80,000 not bad right?

Brangelina also got their baby Siloh’s crib from Kenneth Cobonbue also from the Voyage collection.

When I get the more than Php400 million pot money for the Grand Lotto today I will make sure that my new home will be filled with Kenneth Cobonbue, not just because his works is well-loved by well-known people around the world but because its proudly Philippine made furniture by a Filipino talent. Love your own right?

Stay gorgeous everyone!
