I wanted to describe Mariam Al Luhaib and her collection in many words, be she managed to describe herself and her collection better than I could.
Read what Mariam says about her passion, how she started it and how she got her inspiration:
” “Furnish your room for conversation, and the chairs will take care of themselves.” says Sibyl Colefax, a famous Interior Designer. My name is Mariam Al-Luhaib, a 22 year-old Kuwaiti who has a flare for interior design.
My deep enthusiasm ignited not far back in winter 2011 when I was delegated the task of creating an outdoor lounge for my home, as the weather was too beautiful to be cooped up indoors.
Freshly graduated, and with plenty of spare time, I took the task at heart. I reaserched ceaselessly until I landed on a page I never wanted to close shut; Arabesque Art.
It enchanted me as I started to participate in workshops such as product design, with the likes of Younes Duret and so on. The result was endless praise from visitors and guests alike. “Turkish delight!” that’s what resonated with them as they set their eyes on my pieces, and not to mention my wonderful fabrics that are originally made in Uzbekistan. And so, I dubbed this line to be the “Turkish Delight” collection.
As for my experience, I would say that my trials and errors helped me mature into creating what you see before you today. In the end, I hope that my Turkish Delights bring family and friends closer together, as they were meant to do.”
What I like about Mariam’s ‘Turkish Delights” is that it can be used as a chair or coffee table. Simple and yet colorful, for me they look like an art display as well.
Its Uzbekistanian, rich and colorful fabrics, as well as its dynamic design, is what makes Mariam’s collection unique.
Mariam Al Luhaib will participate with her Turkish Delights collection in the “White Expo” on the 29,30,31 of July, 2012. You can order her “Turkish Delights” in advance.
