On Sunday we visited the launch of the new @grohemea showroom at @mediaonehotel. As well as tons of functional products you can try out for yourself, the Grohe showroom is the first one to open in the Middle East by their Regional Headquarters and showcases some of their most innovative products. We loved the range of colours available for their kitchen taps which can come alongside super smart home technology that allows you to access filtered drinking water straight from the faucet! 💧💧💧
We dropped into the fabulous new @urbannest.ae studio space yesterday afternoon at Ibn Battuta Gate where customers can now peruse many of their gorgeous products in person as well as online. We warn you though, once you’ve put your hands on the real deal it’ll be difficult to exercise self-control and we guarantee you’ll leave with more cushions, lamps or side tables than you arrived with 😅🤣 We were particularly smitten with this awesome wallhanging - perfect for a room with a botanical theme. #myurbannest
We love the statement wallpaper, oversized pendant lights and Art Deco vibes channelled at the new @2xlfurniture showroom in Sharjah.
