Ethnic allure

We’re revisiting one of our favourite looks of the season: bold, eye-popping, ethnic-inspired prints.

1 Get floored

Hossein Rezvani’s stunning carpets offer a contemporary take on traditional Persian designs. We love his Persia Reinvented line, which was recently extended to include the Kaaschi Beige, which is handmade from Persian Highland wool and natural silk.

2 Blast of colour

O’de Rose is now stocking furniture by the Istanbul-based Name Design Studio, which specialises in contemporary, handcrafted, bespoke items for the home. We’ve got our eye on this brightly-coloured, patchwork, wingback chair.

3 Designs for dinner

Geometric designs are to be found emblazoned across many of the products in The Urban Yogi’s new autumn/winter collection. These porcelain Portico plates by Rosanna combine bright colours with striking motifs and are perfectly sized for appetizers, desserts or casual dining with friends.

• Dh450 for the set, The Urban Yogi, Mercato Mall, Dubai

4 Westwood’s luck

The Active Resistance wallhanging from The Rug Company was designed by Vivienne Westwood and inspired by Ancient Greek good luck symbols. The handmade wool tapestry measures 100cm by 100cm and is stretched across a wooden frame.

5 High contrast

A frayed, multi-coloured seat is paired with smooth stark white legs in this square stool from Zara Home. It has a real old-school charm and would work just as well as a bedside table.
