  • At the height of Italian luxury: Designa Italia opens in Makati

    Italian craftsmen are praised all over the world for their dedication to the craft. They make some of the best furniture in the world which are now within reach at the recently-opened Designa Italia in Makati City.

    WELCOME TO DESIGNA ITALIA, where you can find quality living, dining, and bedroom sets.


    Designa Italia is owned by the mother-daughter tandem of Dette Tan and Audrey Zubiri. It was inspired by the former’s trip to the Alf Italia store in Los Angeles, California. She was so impressed with the design and quality of furniture made by Alf Italia that she and Audrey decided to partner up with Alf and another Italian furniture brand, Saporini, to give Filipinos access to “Italian Made” furniture.
