Chat Fores has a bachelor of arts degree in Interior Design at Assumption College, 1996. As a licensed Interior Designer, she worked for 6 years at Leandro V. Locsin Partners, an internationally acclaimed Architectural firm in Manila. She then moved on to open her own interior design firm -- Chat Fores Design Studio.
The firm specializes in creating illusions of big spaces making use of good lighting and color. The aim is to provide a client with a finished project that is timeless, combining aesthetics and function.
Chat Fores Design Studio combines resources with other consultants: furnishing contractors, engineers of different specialties (structural engineers, electrical, mechanical, sanitary and fire protection engineers), lighting, acoustics and kitchen specialists, architects, geomancers and security consultants to create a whole package, if a client so requires.
The body of work of Chat Fores is influenced by her travels to many interesting places and by interaction with her students at the Philippine School of Interior Design (PSID).
