Takkya". In case you didn't know, "al majlis" or "al sabla" is a traditional room in GCC house design common in Oman, that is reserved for greeting and entertaining guests. The room is often carpeted and surrounded with couches or cushions faced against the walls. I love these particular majlis cushions by Takkya, because they actually are based on the functionality and traditional embroidery designs of GCC cultural heritage, however, are available in modern and bright colours. To order call +971501222053 or write firstname.lastname@example.org (based in Abu Dhabi ).

Bedazzled Abaya collection, shot in London. The cuts, the colours, the beadwork, everything is.... fresh. I visited UAE over the weekend and was really bored by a lot of the abaya shops, but not this collection. Check them out here: http://www.instavillage.com/u/bedazzledabaya/
My favourite from the collection (classic, I know, not cutting-edge, but I mean, simple wow up close):
