In last weekend's edition of House & Home, we introduced you to the fabulous pop artist Maria Iqbal. Iqbal, who was born in Afghanistan and raised in Dubai, went on to spend ten years working in advertising in the US and India. But, recognising that the advertising industry would never give her the kind of creative fulfillment she was looking for, last year Iqbal packed in her job, returned to the UAE and launched the Maria Iqbal furniture and accessories brand. You go girl!
Iqbal's furniture, cushions and bags scream of her love of pop culture, whether it's Hindi films, HBO TV shows or fashion mags. They are fun, fun, fun.
In case you were hankering to see more of her work, we've picked out a few of our favourite pieces for you.
Contact Maria Iqbal on firstname.lastname@example.org or 050 956 2520.
