A Entrepreneur Hub in the UAE

     Sheraa is a Sharjah based entrepreneur hub and is closely tied to the culture of the UAE. Designed by Pallavi Dean Interiors, the space is one of modern creativity and marries traditional design elements with a bold, contemporary outlook. With strong references to Arabic typography, this is a wonderful example of form and function coming together.
   
A Spa to Soothe Mind and Body

     The gorgeous Zotafo Spa was designed by Dongguan Zheng Xiang Decoration Design Consulting Co. Ltd. in China. The design is inspired by the natural landscape formed by various prominent features. Zheng Xiang Design made the reflection of mountains against the green and clear water the central axis of the interior design. In addition, design elements of ancient Lingnan architecture are used throughout, making visitors feel like they are entering a Lingnan wonderland, one that is familiar to them from traditional ink paintings.

A Fusion of Style and Taste

     The UAE’s Boutique Interior Design Firm of the Year 2017, Pallavi Dean Interiors’ first restaurant design concept, Shababeek, is now open. The team developed a design story around the concept of ’fusion’ to reflect both the collision of architectural and design styles which has existed in Lebanon for centuries and the restaurant’s eclectic array of influences: from Mediterranean cuisine to Khaleeji wildlife, French fashion to Romanesque and Islamic architecture. The exceptional detail poured into the design is combined with a vibrant color and materials palette of rich greens, brushed brass and neutral tones. The result is a restaurant with an elegant, sophisticated and, above all, contemporary design language.
