Now here’s a store that has a special place in our hearts – not least because it’s the creation of super sassy mama Maya (who doubles up as a yoga instructor…yup, she’s really that cool) but also because it offers a little taste of Blighty here in the desert. Set in the gorgeous Al Quoz Courtyard space, Boo-Bury’s Furniture is a boutique company which stocks hand-made, customised and ‘built-to-last’ furniture including stunning leather Chesterfield sofas and beautiful armchairs made according to the strictest British safety standards. Maya has also collated a gorgeous range of vintage accessories including old maps, flags, art and all those quirky extras that make your home unique plus rugs, (the cowhides are seriously stunning), wallpaper, fabrics and much more too – and an interior design service to help you style your home. And it gets better! Boo-Burys hosts regular lifestyle events from book clubs to movie screenings and interiors inspired talks or demonstrations too. The store is also kid friendly (there are toys to keep them amused while you shop), dog friendly (Maya’s two pooches are there on a daily basis and you’re welcome to bring yours along too!) and the perfect place to relax with a coffee while perusing the collection, even The Queen herself has been known to make an appearance…

How could we leave out Bloomingdale’s Home? This upscale department store stocks some fantastic home pieces that have all been carefully curated, alongside their own exclusive Bloomingdales range. We’re not going to lie, it is going to be a pretty penny but with kind of style and quality, it’s an investment worth making. We love their 1872 Trevarno Collection duvet and the quirky cool Regina-Andrews Design Gold Leaf Puzzle Set.
Caramel and Sun is the UAE expert for children’s design furniture and trendy accessories allowing parents to create their child’s bespoke universe (if only we could be kids again!). With a super cute store in Mercato Mall on Beach Road plus another space within Home and Soul on Al Wasl Road, this little treasure trove is guaranteed to put a huge smile on your face and a dose of fun and colour into your kiddie interiors. It also provides guidance on interior design and will assist you in decorating your child’s room with their furniture and external interior design experts.
We love, love, love this shop turned café turned lounge. At Comptoir you’ll not only find a super funky and very select collection of interior decoration including furniture and accessories but also jewellery and fashion pieces too. Add to that an in-house café that serves up organic, sugar- and dairy-free food and desserts and you’ve got one of the seriously hippest places in town. Sit back in Comptoir’s outdoor lounge (before the heat hits), order an almond milk smoothie (made from scratch) and plan your interiors French style. Tres chic if you ask us!
This American export is one that’s a favourite with mamas all over the world and we’re super stoked that they’re here in Dubai. They’re all about the classics, meaning that you’ll be investing in timeless pieces that’ll always look good, whether you’re going for the big furniture pieces or smaller bits of decor. We love the Starburst Bowl which would look totally awesome on a low coffee table and the cosy yet cool Pennie Sofa. Did we mention they have a totally adorable kids section too?
The saviour of mamas on a budget everywhere in the UAE, Dubizzle’s a cross between eBay and Craigslist where you’ll be able to grab gorgeous second hand goods at a fraction of the price. Skip past the property and jobs sections and chart a course for the Classifieds listings, where you’ll be able to grab everything from musical instruments to knick knacks for your garden. Caroline Bayly from our That Mama’s Crib feature swears by them!
This quality furniture brand from the States is all about beautiful quality one piece at a time and it’s even more stunning given that it’s all handmade. The team on hand are all interior designers themselves (psst, you can get a free interior design consultation with them) and they stock a number of classic shapes for you to fill your home with.
We’ve grown to love this brand more and more – not least because it’s SO affordable but also due to its gorgeous new range of kids furniture pieces designed to grow with your baby (think beautifully made cots which grow into cot-beds and much more). From sofas to outdoor furniture, chairs to tables and every single accessory you could possibly want, a trip to Home Centre always guarantees success!
This international home styling brand is one that we’re big fans of, even across the water with our sisters at Sassy Mama Hong Kong. With a distinctly East meets West design aesthetic, their pieces are stunning additions to every home and you can even hit them up for a styling session or rent furniture from them if you’re not keen on totally committing. We’re in love with the refreshing Green Emperor Chair and the very NYC-chic brass Jolson Bookcase.
And how could we leave Ikea off the list? This universally beloved furniture store is choc full of easy to assemble pieces for the whole family which, happily, won’t break the bank either. We love the Ikea showroom here in Dubai – and if you’re a little bereft of design inspiration, take a wander through their carefully executed rooms – just remember to bring a pencil to jot all the funky names down!

Definitely one of the cooler kids on the block, ikonhouse is known for their timelessly trendy aesthetic (a bit of an oxymoron but they make it work). With gorgeous pieces of super high quality, they’re perfect for a dose of understated sophistication – Rebecca De Courcy-Ireland from our That Mama feature swears by their wishbone chairs.
Pronounced ‘Yusk’, this Skandi furniture store is Denmark’s answer to Ikea and it’s just arrived in our desert city! Noted for its reasonable prices and clean design, you can expect everything from lovely rugs to nesting tables, sideboards to dining tables and chairs – all very minimalist to go with their price tags.
We’ve seen MarMarLand blowing up on the Instagram accounts of interior design darlings like LiveLoudGirl and with good reason. This entirely online furniture destination revolves around helping you create dream homes for the kiddos, with chic curated items to step the kiddos rooms up a notch. We’re particularly loving their new Spear Baskets, perfect for chucking the toys into after play time, and of course their beautiful The Dorm shelves.
Ahh, is there anything more calming than Japanese minimalism? Muji’s renowned worldwide for their simple and clean aesthetic, creating everything from reed diffusers to that crisp, sleek bedsheets – it’s all no nonsense stuff in zen neutrals that’ll slot into any room without a fuss. It’s also not too pricey which is always a plus in our books. (Psst… their clear mini drawers are perfect for organising make-up!)
Don’t turn away as soon as you spy the porcelain cheetahs and rather dubious looking faux leather sofa set at the store entrance, we promise you that Pan Emirates is worth a look for plenty of interior gems and is regularly visited by some of Dubai’s best interior designers. Hidden amongst the glittery designs are some very affordable shabby chic style pieces of furniture and home accessories that will really surprise you – plus all those staples you’ve been looking for (bunk beds, beautiful dining chairs etc) but at really affordable prices. We love!
This Indian furniture brand is one that’s a time old hit with families in Dubai – in fact, Rebecca De Courcy-Ireland and Mukta Uttamchandani from our That Mama’s Crib interviews are big fans. (The antique white mirror from Mukta’s home above is in fact from Pinkys – we’re in love.) Their range is almost entirely comprised of gorgeously detailed wooden furniture; this bench would be gorgeous in a back garden while this fun cabinet is the perfect place to store mama’s Friday night grape juice…
Liven up the kiddos playrooms with adorable wooden chairs, desks and benches by Pomme Kids. They come in a number of delicate pastels with a number of cut outs ranging from stars to hearts, and the benches have a sneaky little compartment that serves as a toy box as well. Multi-functionality and a dash of whimsical – is there really any reason to say no?
Pottery Barn’s all about helping you create a beautiful and inviting home, one that you and your family will be happy to come home to every day.

Sand Interior stocks up on gorgeous indoor and outdoor rustic furnishings perfect for lazing about in. Everything on selection looks lovably lived-in and cosy, whether you’re taking a peek at their antique, old industrial or – our favourite – the warm repurposed wine crate line. Using the coolest materials from our ‘hood, their bookshelves made from old wood and the brassy upcycled ship deck lamp here would look stellar in a bedroom or lounge. This one’s a little odd in that they’ve phased out their actual website and are using their Facebook page to do business, so you just need to comment on a piece of furniture you like then check your personal message inbox when they respond.
A one-stop online shop for everything (and we mean EVERYTHING) a mama could possibly need – including a huge selection of gorgeous furniture pieces, Sprii is an absolute life-savior when you just don’t have the time or inclination to trawl around a mall and you’d much rather shop from the comfort of your own home and have everything delivered pronto!

The Odd Piece is the perfect to grab that quirky center piece for those dipping their toes in the water or for super bold families to deck out their homes in some of the coolest furniture the desert city has on offer. With beautiful pieces sourced from all over the world from places as diverse as Turkey and South Africa, there’s a super eclectic range which will satisfy every family’s interior design hunger. This 1950s Blue Sofa looks as though it was lifted right out of the set of Mad Men, whereas this Antique Arabesque Coffee Table is a gorgeous homage to the brand’s desert city roots.
The story behind this brand’s a little tongue in cheek, as its founder Thomas Lundgren insists that an angel came to him and asked him to ‘save the world from Ikea’. While we adore Ikea, we never mind a few more amazing furniture companies and The One is exactly that. With a super eclectic collection and four different ranges (the signature on-trend The One collection, the more avant garde Fusion and straightforward Junior and Outdoor labels), there’s sure to be something to shake up every home for the better.
We literally want to move into this gorgeous store in its perfect location at The Courtyard, Al Quoz.
