Fall colours arrive at Crate and Barrel
The Crate and Barrel fall collection is now available in the company's Mall of the Emirates and Mirdif City Centre stores in Dubai. The new collection is both contemporary and warm, with a colour palette consisting predominantly of beiges, browns, reds and purples. Yellow and orange tones also dominate, creating a collection characterised by its bright splashes of colour.
Stand-out pieces include the orange Klyne Chair and a Half (Dh3,599), which is larger than a standard chair but smaller than a love seat, making it an ideal accent piece for apartments and smaller homes. The chair is eco-friendly, too, boasting a sustainable kiln-dried hardwood frame and seat cushions made from soy or plant-based polyfoam. A matching Klyne Ottoman and a Half is optional (Dh2,199), but hard to resist.
Other highlights include new products by Maimekko. The Finnish textile and clothing company was founded in 1951 and is renowned for its original prints and uplifting colour schemes. We particularly love the interplay of bright greens and blues on the Rasymotto teal bath towel, hand towel and wash cloth.
