The new lifestyle furniture showroom at the Shangri-La at the Fort opened its doors last June with an event that celebrated 35 years of Filipino craftsmanship at its finest. It was a family affair to remember as Max and Zleda Kienle beamed with pride as they witnessed the passion project of their daughters Stephanie and Jessica unfold. Stephanie’s husband Christian Gonzalez and their daughter Andrea along with Jessica’s husband Jesse Maxwell provided moral support for their wives. Close friends and Philux’s loyal clients marveled at the stunning contemporary pieces on display with champagne and cocktails on hand. Some guests even took out their checkbooks to purchase their favorite pieces, which made the night even sweeter.
