Legitimate Original: Federico de Vera...

Legendary curator of all things beautiful, Federico de Vera
has appointed his home with a curious eye and
and an expert hand. Here, a 1940's military cabinet
becomes a functional storage chest.
Growing up in the Philippines in a Catholic family has
definitely influenced his aesthetic. Watching over a steel
cabinet filled with glass, stands a handsome Spanish saint (c. 1700).
Diego, Federico's pet Chihuahua, perches in the living room.
The iron daybed is covered in silk velvet and vintage ikats.
Federico created this stunning light fixture from
Tibetan altar cloths.
A wooden statue haunts the entryway.
An antique mirror beautifully devours the wall above
the master bathtub. A Tanzu chest sits beneath
the sink for added storage.
