Our Story

Our Story

In 1984, together with a small group of artisans, Alice Reyes opened a home decor company in the basement of her home in Pasay City, Philippines. She wanted to try her hand at establishing an export company that designed and produced items that showcased the talents of Philippine artisans and craftsmen. She named the company Chrysara for her children, Chris and Sara. Almost 30 years later, our handcrafted decorative accessories can be found in exclusive boutiques and catalogs across the globe. 
Chrysara NEST was established to sell exclusive items directly to the Philippine market. We are very excited about the idea of our items finding their ultimate homes right here in the Philippines, after years of gracing homes in the United States, Europe, Australia and Asia.
Our pieces are timeless and classic. We are known for the way we mix materials, for our attention to detail in shape and form as well as for our special finishing techniques — our items are remarkable for their patina, which give them a lovingly age-worn effect.   
While our products do have an antique aura to them, they translate across a wide range of interior styles. They are equally at home in maximalist and minimalist interior design schemes, as well as in traditional and modern settings.  We make products that will turn a house into a home. 
We are very lucky to have a team of highly skilled designers, carvers, resin-casters, tinsmiths and painters who can translate nearly any idea into a beautiful finished product.   
Each carefully handcrafted piece has a unique personality, and our store and website are treasure troves of items you will not find anywhere else in the Philippines. Happy shopping!
