Dubai-based real estate development company Ellington Properties commissioned interior design students from the College of Architecture, Art and Design (CAAD) at American University of Sharjah (AUS) to create a bespoke installation entitled Hamama.

The brand has worked on various projects around the world including Dubai, London and Shanghai.
5. Fashion-to-furniture brand:
When the Spanish luxury fashion house unveiled their debut furniture collection at Milan Design Week entitled This is Home, it took the phrase “a fashionable home” to another level.
