We usually call them furniture solutions.

We specialise in a modern, contemporary styles, although some of our furniture can also add a classic or Arabic twist to a room setting.

Generally, our turnover time is 2-3 weeks, but this depends on the size of the property and the requirements of the project. Our sales managers will always give an honest and realistic timeframe to you after discussing the specifics of your property.

That depends on the scope of work, such as how large the property is, how many bedrooms there are, what sort of style you are looking for.

Unfortunately not, we can only do full apartments and villas. We work from a ‘blank canvas’ so that the design flows from room to room and looks complete.
