KARE Worldwide presents:
For our anniversary we bring the world to your home – today: Dubai! Discover secret spots of the city and lifestyle trends – exclusively told by our partners.
KARE celebrates 100 shops worldwide!
With 100 shops worldwide, KARE celebrates bold, surprising and highly individual interior design. Jürgen Reiter and Peter Schönhofen were students when they founded their first store in Munich in 1981. They realized that the world of interior needed more rock and roll! Today KARE is in more than 40 countries and stands for unique interior design ideas in an infinite variety of styles. Beyond boredom and always full of inspiration.
Welcome to my DUBAI
Coffee with camel milk, the shocking pink taxis “Girls only” run by women for women, falafels from food trucks, winding old town streets – Dubai can be different. The former fishing village has become a giant metropolis in the Persian Gulf. Usually we know it as a place of superlatives and as a holiday destination with sun guarantee. The oil provides the endless wealth of the Emirates. Luxury hotels, giant shopping malls, the Burj Kalifa (828 meters) as the highest skyscraper in the world, artificial islands that will even get artificial snow one day – these projects are featuring the image of the desert metropolis. In Dubai tradition and progress is no contradiction. For example, when it comes to the self-determination of women: The city counts around 4,000 self-employed female entrepreneurs and more and more women rely on vocational training and job before they assume a traditional role in the family.
Nothing is impossible is the philosophy of our KARE partner in Dubai City. At now three locations in Dubai surprise the young, spoiled and international audience of the megacity with living ideas – far beyond mediocrity – in the Mall of the Emirates and Mirdiff Mall. The third spectacular, 700-square-foot KARE shop recently opened in the bustling Oud Metha district in the neighborhood of trendy restaurants, luxury apartment buildings and popular hotels.
“All over KARE” is Georges Meouchys credo. He is the always smartly dressed manager of the new KARE shop. “We in Dubai love interior design that follows an idea, which is then implemented consistently in each room.” Boring unit solutions are not what Georges means, because in Dubai the representative and exceptional character of the apartment or the house plays a larger role as in Europe.

“With KARE we can provide a wide variety of different living styles that are always harmoniously, but never boring. That’s what fascinates the people here. When counseling a customer in his new apartment, the couple wanted a modern concept that should include oriental accents in a new design. Our answer: One of the opulent City Spirit beds combined with the Dark Chalet dresser. With its mix of patterns and the metal-studded body, it is a reference to design forms and handicrafts of our Arab cultural space. ”
