Dubai, United Arab Emirates, March, 2023: Crate and Barrel, which is owned and operated by Majid Al Futtaim in the UAE, has unveiled its stunning Ramadan collection to help hosts, guests and interiors enthusiasts to celebrate at home. The new mix of contemporary and traditional furnishings, local motifs, and extensive gifting options articulates the joy and generosity of the Holy Month.
To inspire further moments of togetherness over food, Crate and Barrel will be hosting cooking masterclasses in UAE stores. Chef Intissar will be at City Centre Mirdif on March 4 between 12.00 – 3.00pm, whilst Chef Sandy will be teaching the joy of cooking at Mall of the Emirates on March 11 between 4.00 – 6.00pm.
The Joy of Sharing
Customers can find everything they need for hosting loved ones for Iftars and Suhoors, from metallic crescent trees to crystal punch-bowls, right through to tiered cake stands. As an extra helping hand for home decorators, the stunning assortment has been separated into unique colour schemes to match any aesthetic. Trend analysts and visual experts from the brand have identified blue hues, pops of muted pink, metallics, and organic tones when it comes to décor and table settings this season.
With so much to prepare for as Ramadan approaches, ‘The Design Desk at Crate’ offers professional interior advice to take the stress out of any home makeover – big or small. This convenient, personalised styling service gives customers inspiration for product pairings, colour palettes, and pattern plays.
Gifts They’ll Love
Crate and Barrel provides meaningful gifts to suit every style and any budget. There are beautiful vases for floral arrangements, gold candelabras to set the mood, plus picture frames to record favourite memories together. Featured in the assortment are home-grown brands including Silsal and Olzem Tuna, a Turkish designer who has developed the ‘Roots’ collection exclusively for Crate and Barrel. This makes gifting more heart-felt than ever in support of local designers and entrepreneurs.
What’s more, Crate and Barrel and Crate and Kids have launched a new gift registry service to help customers mark memorable milestones. Whether shopping for Ramadan, a wedding, anniversary or baby shower, the new service will make gifting stress-free and easier than ever.
A new gift registry can be created online at www.crateandbarrel.me, crate-and-kids, or in-store with the help of Crate and Barrel’s dedicated experts. Once registered, customers can select the products they love and add them to their wish list — which can be managed, organised and reviewed as gifts are fulfilled. Items can be marked as ‘Most Loved’ to bring them to the top of the list, taking the guesswork out of gifting for special occasions.
The Art of Cooking
To help prepare indulgent Iftars at home, Crate and Barrel has all the kitchen and dining essentials. Customers can find a top-of-the range barista machine, stunning flatware that complements any dish, and many more curated items. Luxury labels such as Le Crueset and Smeg are also available to bring people together over food and drinks this Ramadan.
Beyond kitchenware, Crate and Barrel offers a selection of ingredients of the highest quality such as olive oil, sea salt and truffle honey.
Make Ramadan extra special this year with home décor and furniture from Crate and Barrel. The collection is now available in-store and online.
