Pallavi Dean: What I was doing a year ago today
A year ago today we were handing over the Sheraa Entrepreneurship Centre at the American University of Sharjah, and I’d just come back from China where we were making my ‘Tension’ furniture line.
Honestly, I wouldn’t say too much has radically changed since then. We’re now in our third year in our studio at Dubai Design District, and the team feels like the right size at seven designers. 2017 has been a year where all interior design firms have had to be on their A-game. The oil price is still low so clients are watching budgets, and there’s a lot of competition. But there’s always demand for studios that offer things that clients crave: creative design concepts, clever use of space, great value and – most of all – delivering on-time and on-budget.
