From the front door, where staff welcome you dressed in long jackets and Victoriana, you know you’re stepping into somewhere different. The shop is a stage and a maze. You’ll be guided through the Opera Room, Library, Tapestry Room, Yellow Room, Green Room, Floral Room and Secret Garden – which is charmingly littered with leaves. The whole place is a visual delight, inspired by Renaissance Europe.
Everything sold here is unique, from the embroidered sofas to the Dhs3,500 handmade teapots, gem-set necklaces and covetable bronze hand mirrors for Dhs520. There’s even a touch of Narnia about the shop; to get into one room you’ll have to venture through a wardrobe. Whether you can afford to buy any of the glorious pieces in this shop or not, you must step into it for the drama of it all.
