Luxury Furniture Made in Kuwait

  1. That would be fascinating.

    I had a luxury sofa made in Kuwait. 10 years later, it is one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. Modeled after a $6,000 Roche Bobois design, I had mine made in Dhajeej for $900.

    However, I question the filling materials. When I went to take a look at the workshop, it was filled floor-to-ceiling in old matresses with stray cats everywhere and the entire place smelled of urine. I took a chance and accepted the sofa (they did an amazing job and I never had a problem).

    Why buy a made-in-Kuwait luxury sofa from Abayat with a mark-up when you can go have it made at almost any furniture/fabric shop on your own? Ok, it is less hassle but still – if you are looking for something in particular, just shop for it. – plus you can have different styles/textures/colors of sofa covers made at the same time to change the look.

    • There prices don’t span too far off what you paid for your sofa (KD 300 – 500 range). It’s also as you’ve mentioned, people peffer less hassle and possibly less urine smell on their sofas.

      • Ha ha very humorous.

        Well, fortunately, my sofa didn’t smell like urine, but that was not my point. The sofa I had made was done by a well-known furniture company in Kuwait. I would imagine that the practice of manufacturing ANY sofa in Kuwait would be done in back-hole workshops like the one where mine was made (urine or not). To the best of my knowledge (like many other places in the world), Kuwait doesn’t have any laws against using fillers like old/used matresses, pillows, rags, etc.

        What makes it “luxury”? I chose my own quality of springs and wood, so that I would know that it lasted. But you are right – it was a bit of a hassle. A hassle that has yielded a sofa that has endured over 10 years.

        The prices you quoted were good, however. Right up there near Ikea’s.

      • I was being sarcastic about the urine part..

        I doubt Abyat would have the same practices when building furniture, they’re reputation would be scarred for life if anyone found out although it would be interesting investigating.

  2. In Jleeb I have seen underground Sofa factories since childhood, they made custom sofa as well as world class designs…

    Are you surprised they are made in Kuwait or you were not aware of it sir…

  3. Aw, this was an incredibly nice post. Spending some
    time and actual effort to make a superb article… but
    what can I say… I hesitate a whole lot and never manage to
    get nearly anything done.
