There was a competition at Dubai INDEX that included six different interior designers were each had to come up with his/her own design for the traditional Majlis with a contemporary look. It was very interesting to sit and talk with most of the designers discussing the idea behind their work.
One of the designers i met re-used different materials such as used tiers, robs, bottles...etc for the seats and tables of the majlis
even though this was designed as a Majlis, I prefer this kind of seating for a lounge or kids waiting area
The winner Majlis which is a great idea for the future
This Majlis is a great idea for a beach chalet
And thats my favorite Majlis, love the idea, colors and materials she used and check out the wall clock with Arabic numbers :)
In my opinion this Majlis is not suitable for men !! but, it might be more for a ladies gathering area in a house
