I’m back in action after a month-long hiatus. So you can expect a string of posts on Dress Your Home over the next few days. It was a packed month with shopping, home decoration/renovation for my brother’s wedding, and more shopping.
One of the first posts I’d like to do is a reminiscence of the wonderful artifacts one sees at the home decor stores in the Middle East. Every time my parents come visiting, they bring a treasure of knick-knacks to adorn the home.
The Dubai Shopping Festival 2010 is on currently. The month-long shopping extravaganza which began on Jan 28 will end on Feb 28. In a three-part series, I’ll list some of the stores you can stop by if you’re there.
PAN Home Furnishings at the Ibn Battuta Mall
Don’t forget to check out the table and floor lamps collection. Table lamps are anywhere between 30 and 50% cheaper than what is available in India. Sure, transporting them back can be a hassle so travel light from here with enough empty bags.
Sia – Home Fashion
House of Brahthi
Every piece of furniture in the store is a classic.
I loved this rust green mirror with intricate metal carvings. Price is available only on request, so it definitely doesn’t come cheap :)
And finally, The Warehouse store at Jumeirah Plaza.
