Highlights from Design Days Dubai 2012

I went to the opening night of our first design fair, Design Days Dubai on 17th March and was very impressed with it. The fair is dedicated to collectible and limited edition furniture and objects, presented by a range of international and regional galleries. There was some beautiful objects on display and glad to hear so many positive things said about the fair. 

Here are some photos from the night (taken with my iPhone using the Instagram app). I wish I took more, but as it goes with opening nights, you end up meeting old and new friends and do a lot of talking as well.

I wanted to take the rocking lounge (bottom left) with me.

My other favourite object from the fair is the Ice Angel. I got a chance to 'play' with it, but you can watch a video with a much more graceful model on it here
