About Us

Who We Are

It was a passion for the latest interior design trends that motivated founder Arij Jandali to set up maison d’art in 2004. Aspiring to bring exclusive designer fabrics and wallcoverings to the Middle East market, she established the business in Dubai to serve the whole region, including the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Lebanon, Egypt, and Jordan. maison d’art has since built up an enviable portfolio of the world’s most admired designers.

Our team has not looked back, working with blue chip clients, trade professionals, retailers, and individual consumers across the Middle East to achieve their vision in cutting-edge interior design. Along the way, maison d’art has won coveted awards for its collections and added renowned names to its portfolio, which represents the region’s widest variety of interior design brands.
