So while I still hang around Dubai, waiting for permissions to go ahead with all our planned works, I thought I would share another design trend which has become apparent to me while curating furniture for the apartment. Bamboo!
A well known chair which is often used at wedding ceremonies, is the Tiffany Chair, and if you look at the back, you will see that the legs have been turned to have a distinct bamboo motif.
This design element has now reappeared in mainstream furniture.
Firstly noted it with these occasional chairs and coffee table from Ethan Allen in Dubai,
But then also started noting it in wallpapers, and accessories – like this butlers tray from design genius Jonathan Adler which I love!
Also take note that all these items have a brass finish, another trend that I spoke about in various posts here.
