Cebuano Vito Selma may be young, but he’s already making waves as the latest great Filipino furniture designer. His award-winning designs are currently being sold in about 30 different countries across the globe. In fact, the 28-year-old recently launched his VS furniture line in Dubai.

Vito shares that he is inspired mostly by the cultures he gets to know through his travels. He completed his masters degree in industrial design from the Scuola Politecnica di Design in Milan, Italy, but he has traveled the globe in search of adventure and inspiration since he first started designing furniture in high school. He names countries like Iceland, Namibia, Morocco, South Africa, and Israel among his top destinations, explaining what makes their culture so inspirational in this Spot.PH article. His design collections showcase his interest in these cultures while retaining a Filipino feel.

Aside from doing furniture design, Vito shares that he’s also consulted on interior design jobs as well, and he shared a few tips for Female Network homeowners on subjects like personalizing your space, withstanding the mercurial trends and fads that sweep the design world, and more.

Click through the slide show below to read Vito’s tips and get a glimpse at his latest furniture collections, displayed at the 2012 Manila FAME: The Design and Lifestyle Event, held at the SMX Convention Center in March, where his booth was nominated for the Katha Award for Best Booth Design.
