INDEX Dubai started back in 1990 and is one of the key events in the calendar to stay abreast of what is happening in the interior procurement world. This year the team behind INDEX decided to include a September show into their schedule and I wanted to share my top three picks:
Number 1 – Stephanie Design – Firstly Stephanie Ng is fantastic, she loves what she does, she loves the products she makes and every collection has a story. From the aunties at Kuala Lumpur that now do her knitting to the automotive interior company that does her leather work. I have to say I am racking my brain where I can have them in my home and I recommend that you check them out by clicking here.
Number 2 – Maison du Monde and Crate & Barrel – I have to confess I am a big MDM fan as we have store ten minutes from our French home so it is very much my go to for bits and pieces. Both brands are great homewares and residential furniture stores in the UAE and by the sounds bigger and better ones are coming which means more of the ranges being available here, just look at their ranges – MDM and C&B.
Number 3 – Art Painting Lab – representing a number of artists APL collaborate with interior designers and architects to bring original art to the region. Their website says that they are “a happy team of artists, graffiti artists, painters, visual artists and happy people who come together to curate, create and inspire” Sounds like a great way to be to me.
