Anyone who ever decorated a small space knows how crucial it is to buy pieces that are not only pretty but also practical and space saving. Kuwaiti designer Farah Al Humaidhi did exactly that and more. When I visited her recent exhibition tiled Pieces by Farah, she effortlessly showed me how to transform a modern one seater into two ottomans (or can be an ottoman and a table?). And then she showed me a set of lego-style nesting tables which I swear at first glance looked like a normal one high table (not featured here). That's genius!
Looking at her pieces up close, I realized that this is not just another copy/paste exhibition. Farah has smartly played with new techniques and different shapes resulting in her own very distinct style. The way she designed the tables, lace-like vases, and metal mesh and lace covered lamps is simply amazing, and most importantly practical, pieces of art that people would want to buy and decorate their homes with.
You can customize can any of the pieces of Farah's collection, colors and wood type, to your taste. Her work is currently being exhibited at AL Tilal Complex (November Head Office) today only. And in two weeks time, you will also be able to order online through her website.
