“Don’t be afraid of being different; be afraid of being the same as everyone else.”
Founded in 2013 in Dubai, Zimbela African Interiors, part of the ZIMBELA GROUP, has at the very core of our business the singular desire to offer our customers a unique experience and a quality product, both of which are second to none.
By creating unique experiences which give rise to bespoke designs and hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind pieces of exquisite furniture, artwork and accessories, we aim to help turn your imagination into reality.
While we always welcome client enquiries to purchase completed items, we encourage our clients to “take the plunge” into a unique and fascinating journey with us, where they are involved from imagination right through to creation, in the design and development of their own bespoke furniture pieces, artwork, accessories or interiors.
Attention to detail is our hand-crafted hall mark; be it in interpreting our client’s brief, transferring that through the design process into the finishing of the final piece of furniture or accessory, or in customising the theming and decoration of your interior space.
Our Vision – Our “Why”
“Zimbela African Interiors desires to create unique and inspiring design experiences, with finest quality furniture pieces and accessories that survive and are spoken about for generations”
“Along the way, if we can turn a first time customer into a returning client and finally into a lifelong friend, have fun, work passionately and out-do ourselves every single day, we will measure our success by this.”
Zimbela has long sought a way to bring something of Africa to the Middle East; some of the mystique of the “dark continent” out into the light. Africa may often be raw, harsh, brutal and unforgiving, but in that lies strength, honesty, humility and an almost intangible spirit of something unique and genuine. It is this which Zimbela African Interiors strives to echo in what we offer – taking that rawness and strength and crafting it into experiences and products which are honest, genuine, distinctly different and will last a lifetime.
“The spirit of Africa in the heart of your home.”
Africa “gets into and stays in your blood”. It drives deep-rooted and often inexplicable emotions, passions and desires. Away from her, a strong sense of yearning; returning to her embrace, a sense of home, peace, comfort.
We strive for our creations to embody these emotions; designs which capture a deep-rooted passion for Africa’s uniqueness and her grandeur on such a scale as to be almost unfathomable, yet tangible if only through imagination; feelings of serenity and drifting away to wherever ones thoughts cares to wander.
Zimbela African Interiors is a family business and as the origins of the name suggests, “home” really is at the very heart of all that we do. We rely on generations of wisdom, experience and most importantly, passion.
