Midas Going Retro


Remember my post on IKEA's Audrey Hepburn pop art poster? Well is seems the Audrey Fever has caught Midas Furniture. At their showroom in Shuwaikh, they had Audrey Hepburn on arm chairs and Folding Screen/Paravan. And If you want to pay tribute to the original blond bombshell Ms. Monroe, then buying this stack of mugs would be perfect for you.

Personally, I liked the concept of selling furniture and home accessories with old Hollywood glamor in Kuwait, but when it's manufactured cheaply (the paravan for example), then it looks plain tacky.

we all have choices, agree?

more people need to head to midas - surprisingly great items and a local company - we should all be encouraging buying from local suppliers. Do you think ikea stuff is well made??? Even when i get the guys to come and put the stuff together it all inevitably falls to bits x lets all give midas a go

I bought both chairs and I placed a small round table between them, to give that corner of my house a "cafe" feel...

The furniture is not poorly made. It as sturdy as it gets...

Well the paravan looked cheap when I inspected up close.. but the rest were ok.. and of course that's my personal opinion and I respect yours :)

I agree.. we should support local companies.. but that doesn't mean we can criticize poor quality of some items ;)

I'm not sure if there is midas in Dubai.. as far as I know.. no.

The paravan looked cheap when I inspected up close.. maybe the chairs were solid..

Bloggerista

Midas has a lot of stuff to offer, but definitely not long lasting. They follow the trends, so sometimes you end up having to change items yearly due to the fact that its gotten over done.
The great thing about midas is the fact that they carry the brand SIA which is one of the most fabulous artificial suppliers from France.
check them out, they are great for parties and events.
