Kate's Blog

I'm very passionate about design and fashion, my blog features snippets from my daily life that give me
insperation and plant the seeds for new ideas and styles that sometimes make it into our designs.

Emirati designers!

tanween program chairI recently went to Milan design week and while I was there I saw some familiar designers from the UAE. I have fallen in love with their work and have found myself putting all their products into my current projects. They use the true roots and traditions of the UAE to inspire their work and add an old yet stylish Arabic touch to this very modern city. Using these designers supports my community and feels like I’m adding a small touch of home and culture to my recent Middle Eastern villas.

Dubai’s design district has enabled these young professionals to live their dreams and create breath-taking lighting, furniture and accessories. The Tanween programme has been helping designers for years, this programme aims to “highlight their commitment to fostering local designers and talents in the UAE” which makes it possible for them to create these pieces.
