DUBAI – WEST ELM DUBAI

DUBAI – WEST ELM DUBAI

West Elm home furnishing makes its debut in the UAE by opening the first retail store in The Dubai Mall, the world’s largest shopping and entertainment center. The store is to be operated by M.H Alshaya Co., a leading international retail franchise operator. The new West Elm store occupies 14,000 square foot of retail space, featuring a diverse mix of modern home designs and inspirational pieces. From the store layout to the creative collection of eclectic products, the entire store offers more than just a shopping experience, and channels the intimacy and comfort of a home. This particular project is unique because it is the first time West Elm is featuring two Green Walls in a store, doubling the amount of organic exposure to living, breathing plants. The Green Walls are situated behind the cash wrap, serving as the store’s centerpiece to greet customers and alike as they enter the store.
