DUBAI, U.A.R.–Western Furniture opened its flagship store here earlier this month with a gala ceremony attended by more than 400 people.
A highlight of the new store is a Lexington Home Brands gallery representing the largest presentation of the brand in the region.

“The concept of this showroom is to provide consumers with a unique experience,” said Mikdad Bhabhrawala, general manager of Western.
“The new showroom is targeted at consumers who share a passion for elegant, durable and comfortable furniture.”
