“The One” in Bahrain December 5, 2006Posted by Aella in Bahrain, Dubai, Sweden.
About 2 weeks ago I received an email from a good friend in Sweden. She told me that her favourite interior design shop in Stockholm is called The One and that they have a store in Manama. The company was founded by a Swedish man by the name of Thomas Lundgren and he now has stores in Dubai, Bahrain, Jordan, Qatar and Kuwait. She recommended a visit to The One in Bahrain and were curious as to whether they had the same kind of things as in Stockholm. I promised to take some pictures but unfortuantly I was not allowed to.
In any case, we went there for a visit last weekend and the place it absolutely beautiful. I simply wanted most things that I laid my eyes on! Little glittery trinkets, velvety curtains, bedspreads, cuttlery, paintings, carpets, cushions and so on. Some items are a little pricey but what do you expect from a shop owned by a man claiming to be on a mission to save the world from IKEA? It is hard to describe the look of the goods and the store but I can really recommend a visit if you have the opportunity.
The only pic I managed to get was this one hrmm.. Real shame they don’t allow people to photograph but not much to do about that.
Thanks for the tip Elisabeth and I’m sorry I couldn’t take any pics. You just have to come here and we will go and visit it together aaaight!
