There’s a new retail concept coming to Al Quoz, and in keeping with its trendy surroundings, its promising an events hub, creative space, antique furniture and unique buys – all with a best of British theme.
Boo-Burys, found in the Courtyard Gallery, will be opening in style on Wednesday October 11, which will be a night of live jazz, nibbles and a range of prize draws, kicking off at 6pm and running until 10pm. You can also expect discount prices on furniture during the launch event, plus a chance to win a range of prizes.
The store itself will be selling one off antiques, vintage accessories and handcrafted British furniture. Expect classic pieces as well as contemporary – and if you’re looking for something truly unique for your living room, this definitely looks like it’s worth a visit.
If you can’t make the opening bash itself, afternoon tea will be served the following day (Thursday October 12), from 2pm until 5pm, featuring a range of British afternoon tea classics.
The store will be a mixed events space, with a range of events making it more than a static furniture store, and a place offering up a number of reasons to visit. There are plans for a monthly film night, hot desk availability for freelancers (free wi-fi, you say?), separate child and adult book clubs, regular afternoon tea for mums and babies, seminars on interior design, sewing workshops and a range of other meet-up and networking events.
Here’s an idea of what you can expect:
Launch party: Wed Oct 11 6pm-10pm. Open daily 10am-5pm. Al Quoz, www.booburysfurniture.com (056 934 3932)
