Dubai designer creates palm inspired furniture


Local designer Khalid Shafar has created a series of items inspired by palm trees, which are now available in Dubai.

Sharfar’s Palm series will be on display in the DIFC store of D.tales from 16th August.

A business graduate of the American University in Dubai, Shafar worked in marketing and communication for almost seven years.


In 2005, Shafar decided to follow his passion of design, and completed a degree in Interior Design at the American University in Dubai.

He subsequently completed a course at Central Saint Martins College in London, UK followed by one year at the Centre for Fine Woodworking in Nelson, New Zealand.

The Palm series includes stools, tables and coat stands (pictured).
