Just Waiting


Having furniture reupholstered in Egypt is fairly inexpensive compared to outside. Wood generally has to be imported, but we manufacture a lot of fabrics and for the most part the labour costs are lower than in Europe or North America. Buying furniture usually means the higher cost for the wood and such is included and sometimes it can take a while to find the particular look that you want. In Old Cairo a lot of furniture is made to order and this set was just sitting in an alleyway waiting to be collected for delivery.

I like the decorator's color palette. Nice to see a different style of furnishings than I'm used to.

It's good to see older furniture isn't just discarded in favour of the new. It's a strong image you've shown us.
