Interior Design Shop goes all over the world searching for the best Interior Design Stores, so today, we bring to you an exclusive interview with Aya Nakkash, Marketing Manager at NAKKASH Gallery.
How would you describe the store’s concept? How did the project start?
We started this project as we had a lingering feeling that it was time to bring our concept closer to our customers. We wanted to offer easier access to our products and services so we knew it was time for expansion. Our new showroom is located in the heart of Dubai, on Sheikh Zayed road – it’s exactly what we had in mind.
The concept to provide indoor living, entire atmospheres not just furniture. NAKKASH Gallery’s new showroom showcases a diverse array of contemporary and modern styles. Our aim is to refine the lifestyle of our customer by infusing luxury with a distinctive touch of elegance. Our furniture is sourced from around the world and is carefully selected to create various eclectic ambiances.
Tell us a bit more about your store Nakkash Gallery. What can design lovers find there (products and services)?
The NAKKASH Gallery’s new showroom is a haven for unique and eye-catching design pieces sourced from all corners of the world. Design lovers will find out that our furniture is playful, iconic, universally appealing; it’s full of surprises! Clients can expect to be stimulated by our showroom and the diversity of styles. Upon entering the showroom, they can expect a full service experience. Whether it’s finding inspiration in our decorative pieces or spotting exactly what they are looking for with the help of our experienced staff members, they are sure to leave with a positive experience. NAKKASH Gallery is the ultimate destination for indoor and outdoor living that offers more than just furniture – a complete lifestyle.
Do you have any exclusive pieces? Which brands do you work with?
NAKKASH Gallery offers a wide range of limited edition pieces and unique designs. We work with the luxury exclusive design furniture brand Boca Do Lobo and we are also the exclusive distributors of the luxury outdoor furniture brand Dedon.
Is there anything exciting that you are working on at the moment that you can tell us about? Any new projects?
We like to keep our clients surprised so we won’t reveal too much, but after the recent launch of our second branch in the UAE, we are now hoping to open at a third location. Ideally, it will focus solely on outdoor furniture brands, but only time will tell!
How do you pick the store’s collection? Which major events do you attend to find the latest designs?
NAKKASH Gallery’s team goes on several buying trips throughout the year to scout for new talent and merchandise the store with exciting new collections. The team keeps an eye out for young, upcoming designers and aims to promote their work in the region. Maison et Objets, High Point Market and Salone del Mobile are among the major events attended.
Which materials / techniques do you love the most?
My personal design aesthetic is based on a modern environment with a classic appeal. I refuse to be defined by one particular style as I use a mixture of both classical and modern materials. I like to blend different themes. For example, antique furniture with modern fabrics. I think the heritage of the furniture combined with a more versatile texture is the perfect way to add culture and style to any room. Perhaps the best thing I’ve learned throughout my time in the industry is how to incorporate traditional designs with new trends.
What is your philosophy on design?
NAKKASH Gallery is at the forefront of interior design for over three decades and aspires to go beyond client expectations by drawing inspiration from visual art; be it paintings, fashion or photography. We seek to continuously produce designs that are flexible and adaptable to individual demands and requirements. The Gallery offers more than just timeless furniture; we offer lifestyle solutions through our innovative interior design team that serve both private and corporate clients. We strive to build versatile installations that unite contemporary and classic in a modern setting.
Who is the Nakkash Gallery client?
One of the many beauties of being located in Dubai is that it’s truly a melting pot. Our clients are from all over the world, whether they’re from Singapore or Sweden, they all seek an adventure when it comes to Interior Design. Clients can expect to be inspired by our showroom and the diversity of styles.
