Desert Designs Brings Bedouin Designs to Your Home

BarakaBits, Uncategorized, Writing

A store that started in a tent in 1990 during the Gulf War, Desert Designs can be found today on King Abdulla Street in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia. Since then, the store has grown to offers a customized furniture department, interior design services, a contemporary art galley and café in addition to a retail store. This family business brings tribal Bedouin designs to your home. The store’s products range from accessories to custom-made lighting, bright weaved rugs, ceramic vases with Arabic calligraphy, hand-painted coffee tables, paintings and even handbags.

In addition to furniture and home accessories, Desert Designs provides artists with a platform to talk about art through Huna Art, a space much needed in the country. In August, for example, Desert Designs held a talk by Emily Fiddy, a certified expressive arts therapist. The gallery space and meeting area are available for rent for events; Desert Designs’s Cafea Arab hosts Kalimat Literary, a monthly ladies book club.

Desert Designs offers beautiful pieces rooted in Saudi culture to decorate your home and a cultural space open to all art lovers.
