WHERE IN DUBAI CAN I GET THE COOLEST carpets?

Certain things are taken for granted until they turn out to be quite difficult to obtain. Display A: carpets… Since it hasn’t really been a problem, you have probably never considered finding one or more carpets for your house to be a particularly difficult chore if you are not based in Dubai. Typically, two straightforward situations exist. First one: you find a great vintage item online or in a specialty shop, and you have a beautiful huge budget. It may be from Morocco, Turkey, or India, for example. Bob becomes your uncle after you select your size, place your order, and receive your item. Scenario number two: you’re on a tighter budget, so you visit your neighborhood’s numerous high-street stores or online sellers to find fashionable, vibrant carpets. It’s possible to come across a charming pattern or design that draws inspiration from more conventional or vintage elements. Although they may be constructed from synthetic or polypropylene materials, they can still look amazing and have a long lifespan. You order it, select your size, and get it. Additionally. Task completed.
That’s what I recall, anyhow, from my earlier years in Duabi.
But after only a few weeks in Dubai, it was clear that finding cheap carpets in Dubai would be a whole other story. The first obstacle is that just a small number of businesses have e-commerce websites, making it nearly impossible to find anything online, much less carpets. For background, see my piece on the issue. What remains? classic physical retailers and display cases. To locate a deal, you’ll need to travel to Al Quoz or the malls. This is where the complexities arise. Dimensions… The bulk of Dubai’s villas are three times larger than the typical European townhouse, yet for some reason, most of the carpets that are sold in stores are either “post-it” size or meant to be used primarily in corridors (I mean, there are tons of runner carpets in Dubai). Then price tags start to become real to you. Thus, it’s more of a save-or-spend game with little in between. But don’t give up; there’s always a but in my story. It’s not all bad news. I’ve done the legwork for you and put together a list of my top rug-sourcing locations in Dubai, ranging from the well-known to the “not so usual,” from vendors that will make your heart race to off-the-beaten path.
