E. Murio is a furniture workshop that designs and manufactures fine furniture and home interiors and accessories. We specialize in natural materials such as tropical woods, fiber and grass weaves, rattan, and bamboo. We also work with metal, leather, bone, veneers and synthetic weaves. We believe that the beauty of our pieces comes from both the design and the quality of the craftsmanship. Our methods are the result of decades of experience, experimentation, and a specialized knowledge of the tradition of furniture making. It is the combination of our design and craft that results in exceptional furniture.

E.Murio goes a long way back. We trace our steps from Spain to the Far East and finally to Manila over years of travel, adventure and friendship where the families who have made what E.Murio stands for today shared their experience and expertise to craft the distinctive aesthetic our pieces embody. The leather bindings and bone fittings are just some of the fine finishing details that distinguish our rattan and wood furniture from that produced anywhere else. It is no wonder that a select audience with a critical eye for detail have come to love our work over the years.

Though our furniture has traditionally leaned towards classic pieces, we continue to produce and experiment with new designs to create more modern, ambiguous forms, while crafting them using our traditional techniques. We like to think of our work as intimate architecture for the body and for the lives that inhabit them. And as we work in crafting such designs, we hope that they also evoke a formal fascination, an appreciation of texture, and most importantly- a sense of comfort and delight.
