From its conception in 1999, the Mouhajer International Design team has set the standard for interior design.
Based in Dubai, the company was founded by Maher Mouhajer, who gained a Bachelor’s Degree while studying in the global design capital, London. With a style that is based on form and texture, it was not long till the practice caught the attention of a growing number of luxury clients.
Mouhajer International Design’s adaptable approach and knowledgeable sourcing have meant that they can confidently provide services over residential, commercial and hospitality sectors.
This led to contracts with world-renowned companies such as Sheraton, Radisson and DoubleTree by Hilton, to name but a few. Commercial projects have seen the team tackle clinic design in Doha, Qatar, through to contemporary office design. An understanding of end-user engagement with interiors has resulted in projects across the retail sector.
Tasked with creating Rubicons Coffee located at the Dubai Mall, the team used their ability to draw on branding and reflect this within the high-end coffee shop’s structures and finishes. Creating flow and providing optimum dining space with carefully chosen furniture and fittings meant that their client could offer a full service with all the interior focused instagrammable opportunities that end-users seek.
Residential projects have included large scale palace sites through to some of Dubai’s exclusive private Villas. Both have provided their unique hurdles to overcome.
From creating welcoming, intimate spaces in large scale rooms to maximising space, each is approached with a technical understanding of best practices.
It was this portfolio that caught the eye of Luxury Lifestyle Awards and resulted in a trio of accolades that recognized the versatility of Mouhajer International Design and its place as a leader in its field.
Mouhajer International Design’s recent work on Sofitel Dubai Jumeirah Beach Resort secured them the title of The Best Luxury Hotel Interior Design.
Known for providing luxury accommodation to an international clientele, the hotel employed the interior team to work on public areas such as the lobby and onsite Plantation brasserie, bar and terrace.
With a nod to the art deco forms of yesteryear, the team embraced the challenge of creating unique lighting, furniture and accessories that complimented the brand while providing a connection between guests and the local culture.
The Luxury Lifestyle Awards team was impressed with Maher’s ability to source various surface finishes, while his advanced technical knowledge was evident in the bespoke structures.
A mix of alabaster, lapis lazuli, brushed metals and marbles set this project at the high end of the design spectrum. Simultaneously, thoughtful finishes in geometric arches and terraces draw the users’ eye and provide private spaces within an open plan design.
The residential project that secured the team their second award was a private villa. This impressive home required multiple details that reflected the owner’s tastes and status.
From eye-catching chandeliers to rich textiles, the team drew on their ability to add signature styles throughout. This included sourcing ornate rococo style furniture and creating wall motifs within spa and pool areas. The property was given a cohesive palette in cooling creams with highlights of gold and rich blues.
Unique artwork provides conversational points, and lighting is used to provide both practical and indulgent charm. This eye for detail approach showcased Mouhajer International Design as a leader in creating luxury residential projects with consistency and refinement and a worthy winner of The Best Luxury Residential Interior Design title.
Maher and his team have not just survived on homegrown success but have won projects worldwide, including offering their interior design services to New York, Los Angeles, and Miami clientele.
The team are able to offer a consistent, professional service from one room projects through to large scale schemes while retaining that individuality and understanding of the luxury market that sees them at the pinnacle of their trade and deserving winners in this year’s awards . With luxury design tipped to increase over the coming years, we believe that Maher and his dedicated team will be defining high-end design for many more years to come.
