Town&Country Tastemaker Ito Kish just announced that his eponymous furniture and home accessories store in the Philippines will be closing doors on May 22. The designer took to his blog to talk about the surprising news:

"KISH opened in Glorietta 16 years ago. During all that time, we closed the store for only a handful of occasions, and each time was for major reasons. We were either transitioning to a new space or a renovation was in the works. Even when KISH Greenbelt closed, the new space at the LRI Design Plaza was up and running in less than three months.

"Soon, our 500-square-meter showroom will close its door definitively. This time, we are closing for a transition that is internal, and the renovation will be of a personal nature.

"I want to take a few months off, complete ongoing interior design projects, spend time with family, travel more, read broadly, and maybe even go back to cooking. Yes, I can cook!

"Will I be reopening the shop any time in the future? Somehow, given how much I love retail and design, I am sure of it. But now is not the time to be talking [about] the future. My goal as I take this break is to just live in the present."

While KISH pieces will be available online after May 22, the showroom will go on sale starting this Saturday, May 13, with furniture discounted at 50 percent. ITO KISH HOME pieces and books will be sold with a 25 percent discount. 

ITO KISH is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; 233 Nicanor Garcia, Makati; 896.866.
