There is nothing quite like the third week of March in Manila, when the design crowd congregate en masse for Manila FAME International but hold on, if you can’t stop by, Angelenos and Filipinos in the west coast will be drawn with a real crowd-pleaser.

ARTEXTURAL, a design showroom of high-end home complements and objets d'art from internationally acclaimed, award-winning designers from Cebu (Vito Selma, Clayton Tugonon, Ramir Bonghanoy, Francis Dravigny and Jamaica markets) ASEAN's declared city of culture, with focus on natural materials such as abaca, rattan and tobacco leaves, recently opened its doors, luring visitors in the art + fashion hub of downtown Los Angeles.

Yes, all furniture and accessories are synonymous with progressive design, artisanship and function, handcrafted in Cebu, ASEAN's official City of Culture.

The opening of ARTEXTURAL in Los Angeles just gave us an excuse to linger a little longer in this sun-soaked city.

Gallery at Luma South, opening in March, will showcase sculptures by Juan Carlo Calma.

I’ll definitely put this on my agenda for 2012!
