When it comes to matters of decorating and outfitting the home, it’s safe to say that Cairo has some, let’s say, peculiar tastes – think notoriously uncomfortable Domyat furniture.

But while many find refuge in duplicating concepts and styles, there stands a handful of shops that have carved out niches and made a name for themselves with their quality furnishings, home accessories and home products.
