Iconic home furnishings brand, Marina Home, opened its first Qatar showroom at the Mall of Qatar with an opening ceremony. The ceremony was attended by Mr. Mohamed bin Ahmed bin Tawar Al Kuwari, Vice-Chairman of Qatar Chamber, members of the retail industry, developers, interior designers and the media.

The official opening ceremony was inspired by the Golden Age of Arab and International art and cinema that was known for pushing the boundaries of creativity. The event featured a series of activations that reflected the intricate craftsmanship that goes into producing Marina Home’s pieces including candle carving and calligraphy.

“Marina Home is a dynamic private company that has managed to build a name for itself within the region,” said Mr. Mohamed bin Ahmed bin Tawar Al Kuwari, Vice-Chairman of Qatar Chamber. “We are pleased to welcome it in Qatar as Qatar Chamber is fully committed to supporting innovative ventures that serve to enrich the retail industry within the country.”

The 2500-meter square showroom follows Marina Home’s iconic concept of warehouses and welcomes its guests into a new realm of design, indulgence and individuality where they get to see vintage and modern fuse into an unexpected harmony. This unique concept has ensured Marina Home’s continued success across the eight markets where it operates including UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt, India, Pakistan, Oman and now Qatar and has established it as an inspirational brand renowned for quality.

A growing population coupled with a consistent economic development and a series of current and planned mall openings has supported the retail industry in Qatar. A report published by DTZ in 2016, showed that demand remains strong from retailers looking to enter the Qatari market.

Commenting on the new opening, Marina Home’s Co-Founder, Khurshid Vakil, stated: “The Arab world is historically known for being a global hub of art and culture and Marina Home is the product of that rich heritage, having been established in Dubai in 1997. We are extremely proud to launch our flagship store in Qatar, a market that is continuously evolving and whose consumers are known to proudly support brands that stem from the region.”

Located at the newly opened Mall of Qatar, Marina Home will enrich the local shopping experience and offer its customers innovative styles and materials sourced from over twenty countries and influenced by a rich range of cultures.

“Marina Home is not your average furniture store, its collection is made up of the finest materials that create unique pieces of heirloom furniture,” said Foued Hamzaoui the General Manager at First Trend Qatar. “Our pieces tell stories, and their timeless originality will appeal to consumers in Qatar who have a taste for quality and an appreciation for art and culture. The soft launch was four months ago and our collection has been widely successful among Qatari consumers who are looking for pieces that add to their homes and showcase their individual tastes.”
