BY THE EDITION
Jointly hosted by Ayala Land Premier and auction house Casa de Memoria, the Casa Boutique features a remarkable array of unique pieces, from valuable silverware and porcelain to art work and intricately made Oriental carpets. The exhibition and sale runs from August 16 through August 23 at Ayala Land Premier’s Park Central Towers show flat.
Founded by Angelique Miranda, Camille Lhuillier, and Tiffany Mathay, Casa de Memoria deals primarily with international pieces, specializing in European antiques and art. “We just celebrated our second anniversary this year so we are quite new in the auction game,” says Lhuillier, Casa de Memoria’s marketing manager. “Angelique, our director, was interested in these unique pieces that aren’t local. She saw a niche, and we have been thriving in it.”
