Husband and wife team, Paul and Ellen Bishop, of Bishop Design Associates, has partnered with local suppliers to launch a showcase of design at its offices in Al Barsha, Dubai.
The showroom is not open to the public and strictly by appointment only and the products are exclusively sold to clients the firm has designed for.
“We wanted our clients to get inspired by design and to be able to ‘touch and feel’ our creations, not only on a material board but in real life,” said Ellen.
“It is often difficult for customers to visualise your design even with the help of state- of-the-art visuals, material and furniture boards.”
The party was attended by other interior designers, such as Marie-Noelle Swiderski, managing director, Blanchard interior design & architecture.
The suppliers include; JAB Middle East: fabrics, hand-tufted carpets & wallpapers Ohpopsi: wall covering and selected printed artworks Stepevi: shaggy rugs MTE Middle East: woven vinyl flooring Bolon from Scandinavia Casa Mia: flooring, wall tiles and bathroom finishes & fixtures Ashtaar Interiors: interior contracting and manufacturer for all furniture pieces designed by Bishop Design LLC Vitra: office furniture Planika: fire places ProjInteriors Italia: exclusive Italian lamps, backlit crystal mirror and divider Maison D’ Art: Ralph Lauren wall coverings
