POP UPS DUBAI
“What you love is beautiful”, is a very unique, funky and new concept in Dubai brought to you by Mishmashi and Tamara Nouri for the lover of interior design, home accessories, fashion and jewelry. In fact anyone looking for inspiration or something unique and creative needs to come check out this place. What a break from going to the mall. West meets East at this special pop up bringing together designers from all over the world with creatives in Dubai. I fell in love with the Indian carpets, metallic stools, Afghani pillows, beach towels, quilts, Calamarie from Miami jewelry, Domakaya accessories and of course my favorite Marmise kaftans. The pop up will run until January 5th, and is located at The Sofa Studio, a concept lifestyle gallery/store offering everything in an open space art setting. The art gallery is a perfect setting where local artists can exhibit their work, in addition to offering workshops and right in the center of it all, a Pop UP Boutique, the perfect space for launching and promoting lifestyle creative products.
The Courtyard is a privately operated community center located in Al Quoz designed and built by the designer architect Dariush Zandi and has been in operation since March 1998. The Courtyard's concept was to create a viable multidisciplinary community center, which could house a variety of functions, exhibitions and cultural activities in a city with many different nationalities and ethnic backgrounds. The result is literally a courtyard house with composition of different elevation styles inspired by contemporary architecture; each building within the courtyard presenting a certain culture.
