Embracing a Brand New Chapter: Meet The Team Behind Twenty Third by Deanne

Every piece at Twenty Third by Deanne tells a story of globally sourced, refined craftsmanship, and this realm of globally inspired furniture and pieces is expanding from San Francisco to the Philippines as Twenty Third Philippines! Get to know the team behind Twenty Third as they venture on a trip to Cagayan de Oro. 

The Philippine headquarters being in Cagayan De Oro has a personal connection to Lim. “Cagayan de Oro is my hometown and this is where my journey began, so it felt right that it is the place where we house our primary operations. However, our vision extends far beyond the confines of Cagayan de Oro; our goal is to extend our reach and cater to the diverse tastes and preferences of the entire Philippines.” CEO and interior designer Deanne Ashley Lim says.

“Working for Twenty Third by Deanne has been a transformative experience for me. Aside from my growth as a creative, 23rd taught me that I can balance my life and work.”

Dacalos says. “It taught me to slow down and recharge because I can be a workaholic sometimes, which isn’t healthy for my overall well-being. It also taught me how a simple pillowcase can change the mood of a house without necessarily changing the whole interior! It’s truly amazing how the little details can make such a big difference.”

“I'm thrilled to play a role in the growth of Twenty Third by Deanne. Witnessing Filipinos embrace the brand and incorporate its pieces into their homes is truly exciting.” Lu says. “I look forward to seeing the products recommended and shared online, creating a community around Twenty Third. As we contribute to the brand's success, I also anticipate personal growth and learning opportunities for myself.”

At Twenty Third by Deanne, the pursuit of excellence knows no bounds.

With a keen eye for detail and a passion for authenticity, the brand scours the globe in search of the finest materials, the most skilled artisans, and the most captivating designs. From Indonesia to Turkey, each destination offers a unique glimpse into the diverse tapestry of global craftsmanship.

“Our visit to Cagayan de Oro was truly inspiring,”

shares Lagundi. “It reaffirmed our belief in the power of human connection and the richness of diverse cultures. We returned with a renewed sense of purpose, eager to weave the stories of the journeys and stories we’ve come across into the fabric of our brand.”

According to Arquion, it was so fulfilling to see the products to be offered to Twenty Third Philippines customers soon. “I’ve learned that there are so many beautiful pieces made by artisans and designers around the world that are worth sharing and celebrating, and that can touch each one of us. It’s humbling to be a part of a brand that values authenticity, craftsmanship, and cultural diversity, and it has broadened my perspective on design and creativity.”

Paredes shares the same sentiment. “The photos do not do these pieces justice as they look even better in real life. In Cagayan de Oro, I also enjoyed meeting everyone, hanging out with them, and spending time during dinners. I had so much fun.”

With its Philippine outlet, Twenty Third aims offer more than just home decor. The brand wants to give its customers an immersive experience, a journey through the realms of style, comfort, and sophistication.
