Esteemed German furniture brand KARE recently opened its showroom at The Podium, its first in the Philippines.
“We are excited to showcase what’s in store for the Filipino market with the launching of our newest showroom here in the Philippines. We are delighted to give our home decor enthusiasts a kick of inspiration with our unconventional selection of lifestyle pieces and anything but ordinary ideas for their living spaces,” said Ivan Yao during the showroom opening held at the Level 3 of The Podium.
With the opening of its first showroom, KARE brings a breath of fresh air into the country’s urban-living sphere. The brand represents a unique mix of furniture, lighting, home accessories, and gift articles that will help people showcase their individuality and personality, and to make their home a place where they feel good.
A Showroom like no other
Welcoming guests to the 1,000-square-foot showroom was KARE’s signature bright red statue, Fred. The striking, man-sized greeter at the entrance of the showroom charmingly bows to everyone who comes in and out of the store. Fred, which is also available as a standard lamp and as a miniature version for the desk, is just one of the trendy designs that KARE proudly offers.
The KARE Showroom features a new concept of interior design: furniture and lights, accessories, and gifts which come across like art objects on a scene. Entering the showroom, customers will discover the diversity of styles and trend inspirations that suit the varying tastes, lifestyles, and budgets of Filipino consumers.
Focal points of the launch event are the high-quality and trendy upholstered furniture, staged in the KARE living worlds, and an eclectic collection of lights, accessories, and decors that will transform your home into a destination place.

Anything but ordinary
With its endless variety of unique and inspiring products, styles, and services, KARE has the makings of creating incomparable furnishing worlds. The furniture company lives up to its mission, “Anything but ordinary” and stands committed to developing new furnishing ideas in an imaginative and contemporary way. KARE is a non-conformist—not allowing itself to be pinned down to a single design direction but focusing on diversity.
“We aim to bring a lot of fun and energy into the home decorating and interior design scene here in the country. This is a great opportunity for us to present our unique and sensuous furnishing ideas that will surely excite the curious and creative minds of Filipinos,” said Yao.
The unique signature of KARE Design is reflected in its over 5,000 pieces of furniture, lamps, and interior accessories. The collections have been meticulously prepared by Jürgen Reiter, one of KARE’s two founders and owners.
A flourishing trendsetter for 40 years
Since 1981, the company has been surprising the interior scene worldwide with an incomparable and inexhaustible variety of new furniture, lighting, and furnishing accessories. But despite being in the business for 40 years, KARE remains one step ahead of the competition as it now operates more than 120 stores in 50 countries, including standalone shops and other shop-in-shops.
“From the beginning, we don’t do normal— we design and create collections that make a statement. And as we expand our market here in the Philippines, we will make sure that we will serve our new market a mix of surprising, extraordinary, incomparable products that embody the KARE design philosophy,” said Jürgen Reiter, KARE Co-Founder.
