Clark inaugurates new Deco Central showroom, showcases local talents, creativity, craftsmanship


CLARK FREEPORT — Clark has unveiled its new Deco Central showroom, which displays a diverse range of locally crafted furniture, art, and decor.

Clark Development Corporation (CDC), the Philippine Exporters Foundation Region III (PhilExport Region III) led the inauguration, with First Lady Liza Araneta-Marcos and CDC President and CEO Atty. Agnes VST Devanadera leading the ribbon-cutting ceremony recently. They were joined by Governor Dennis “Delta” Pineda and Vice Governor Lilia “Nanay” Pineda, among other local officials.

The 2,000 sq.m showroom provides a platform for 34 regional artisans to gain exposure, while also contributing to the local economy and attracting tourists. The showroom features a variety of locally crafted products, including religious statues, furniture, decorative frames, beds, dining tables, and assorted handicrafts—all showcasing the skill and creativity of these talented craftsmen.

Atty. Devanadera said that this larger showroom was inspired by Vice Governor Nanay Lilia Pineda, who noticed the growing demand for Pampanga’s furniture.

The showroom provides a centralized location where visitors can check out and purchase these products, offering a convenient way for buyers and tourists to connect with manufacturers. Philip Repato, President of PhilExport Region III, highlighted that the showroom will have a significant impact on the local economy and job generation.

He estimated that around 3,000-4,000 indirect workers could benefit from the showroom’s operations, boosting job opportunities in the manufacturing and furnishing industry. Vice Governor Pineda expressed her delight at seeing her long-held dream become a reality, demonstrating the creativity and hard work of the local artisans. Deco Central Showroom is now open to the public, and the Clark Development Corporation (CDC), PhilExport Region III, and the Pampanga Provincial Government are inviting everyone to come and explore the finest furniture and home decor from Region III.

“We have a new, bigger Deco Central, showcasing the best furniture and furnishings. We hope to see you at our showroom soon,” Repato said.
