How to Set Up Your Home Work Space Like Andi Manzano

Working from home is a common trend especially nowadays as creative jobs have boomed. Online-only jobs have also made it possible for people to earn a paycheck even in pajamas all day.

Meetings are inevitable though. Just look how recently Andi Manzano hinted how she’s cooking up something new with blogger Cat Arambulo-Antonio in her home. What we noticed was the big and efficient work space with elements that just might be useful for your at-home workspace.

crate & barrel table

A large lightweight wooden table like this White Top/Elm Base from Crate & Barrel  is best for a lot of projects. It also provides a good space for working lunches and stress snacking (just do it in moderation, please!) Available at SM Makati.


habitat chair

Alternate your standard chairs with comfier options like the Habitat Bacco chair which has a cushy upholstery so you can relax a little bit. Available at Bonifacio Global City.

pendant lamps

For lighting that can be both efficient to help you see everything, but also adds interest to your room, you can go for these Pottery Barn Classic Pendant Lamps. Available at Bonifacio Central Square.


Candles aren’t just for chilling. They can also set an atmosphere that is conducive to letting  your mind free to think of new and exciting ideas. Get this Diptyque Figuier Candle for a neutral, unisex scent that’s appropriate whatever time of day. Available at Rustan’s Makati.


Accessories are important to remind you to always add a bit of humor even when things get serious. A quick pick that won’t clash with your current setup is the HAY Wooden Hand. Available at Uptown Mall, BGC.
