About Us

Who We Are

It was a passion for the latest interior design trends which motivated founder Arij Jandali to set up maison d’art in 2004. Aspiring to bring exclusive designer fabrics and wallcoverings to the Middle East market, she established the business in Dubai to serve the whole region, including the UAE, Saudi, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, and Iran. We have since built up an enviable portfolio of the world’s most admired designers.

Our team has not looked back, working with blue chip clients, trade professionals, retailers and individual consumers across the Middle East to achieve their visions in cutting edge interior design. Along the way, maison d’art has won prestigious awards for our collections and we have continued to add exclusive brands to our prestigious portfolio, which represents the widest variety of interior brands in the Middle East.

Our winning formula: combining exclusive brand partnerships with unmatched customer service and a sharp focus on quality, price and functionality.

What We Do

As the exclusive Middle East distributor for a range of designer home décor and lifestyle brands, maison d’art supplies a range of designer furnishing fabrics, wallcoverings, upholstery and home accessories by leading designers such as Designers Guild, Ralph Lauren, and Christian Lacroix, among many other high-end brands.

Our award-winning team provides full-service supply and fit-out solutions to individual consumers, retail stockists, trade and contract clients embarking on residential and commercial interior design projects across the region.

From inspiration to implementation, we provide a turnkey solution to make your ideas a reality, including conceiving mood boards and taking care of all the details until all elements are fixed and finished.

What Our Customers Think

We are regularly voted best in class by our customers, as well as by seasoned judges, in prestigious industry awards.

In 2018, we won Best Textile Brand at the Harper’s Bazaar Interior Design Awards, the Middle East’s most prestigious international design competition, as well as Best Interior Design Product Distributor in the Middle East at the Fashion & Lifestyle Awards.

In 2017 and 2015, readers of the UAE’s leading interiors magazine InsideOut voted maison d’art as the Best for Soft Furnishings and Best for Textiles, respectively, in the InsideOut Readers’ Choice Awards, an accolade established to recognise and reward the very best in the UAE’s interiors industry.
