The latest new interior brand to hit the UAE is Talata. Founded by three Dubai-based friends, Talata aims to bring authentic craftsmanship ideas and design elements from artisans around the Middle East to the UAE in the form of exclusive pieces created by regional designers.
Their first collection is inspired by their homeland, Egypt, and features elements that are traditionally Egyptian alongside more contemporary style. Think palm fronds on top of zig-zags, and scarab beatles on cushions with pom poms and you get the idea.
Simple, clean prints in earthy colours; good, quality Egyptian cotton; beautifully crafted furniture and more.
