Nothing excites us more than aesthetic interiors and clean spaces.
One place that stands out prominently is Heba El Habashy, founder of Klekktic, Dubai’s customizable home furniture store that makes aesthetic interior pieces available to all. With made-to-measure pieces, El Habashy is redefining the Middle Eastern interior space with quality pieces and has seamlessly incorporated the same in her home.
Every room is tailored to complement her sought-after interior choice from clean, wide spaces to carefully curated furniture pieces.
Emirates Woman shares all our most loved elements from El Habashy’s home for an exclusive peek.
How long have you lived/worked in this space?
I have lived in this space since March 2020 – we moved in exactly three or four days before the first covid lockdown was about to begin!
Did you have a clear concept from the outset, and which key pieces are your favourite?
Actually, this space is constantly changing – it’s almost like a living, breathing evolution of Klekktic. I get very bored with pieces quickly, so I change things around all the time, especially since it’s so easy to change the colours of elements or switch around fabrics. I also love to try out all the newest samples here and live with them before they launch online or in the showroom. Before this current setup, we had a different colour scheme with dark greens and more deep tones, and now we have brightened the space up for Dubai “summer” and in preparation for some new pieces we recently acquired on a trip in CPH.
Have you custom-built any bespoke pieces?
Everything in this house is bespoke, with the exception of a few lights and carpets. Fadi Sarridine, a genius, made the TV unit; the rest of the furniture is mainly from Klekktic, of course. The carpets and other vintage pieces are either passed down from family or purchased from antique stores. The art is the same or done by my husband, an awesome photographer. We also have a few pieces by Ali Shahabi, another favourite photographer, with very interesting pieces.
How do you think your interior reflects you/your brand?
I’m not a huge fan of minimal and monotone spaces. I find it a bit expected and boring. It’s always nice to add character to a space and make it unique to yourself by incorporating fun and happy colours and, if not colours, then at least interesting textures that aren’t traditionally paired together. Of course, I also appreciate art, great carpets, and other vintage and heirloom pieces. Describe your taste in three words. Eclectic, lighthearted, moody (constantly changing).
