Exhibitions in UAE for Home & Lifestyle

The home and lifestyle industry in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) enjoys rapid expansion driven by a booming retail market and urban development on top of an affluent consumer base. The UAE home décor market was valued at over $2 billion in 2023. One of the most significant trends is the shift towards sustainability and ethically sourced materials. Consumers are prioritizing eco-friendly options, which has led to a rise in popularity for upcycled furniture, locally made pieces from repurposed wood or bamboo, and organic textiles. Leading brands such as The One and BoConcept are incorporating ecological processes into their collections. Additionally, government initiatives like the Dubai Green Furniture Certification promote responsible sourcing practices. Today’s homeowners in the UAE are also seeking to create unique and personalized living spaces that reflect their individual styles and backgrounds. This has spurred a demand for bespoke furniture, personalized art pieces, and DIY projects that incorporate regional themes. Online platforms such as Etsy Design are supporting this trend by offering bespoke design services and curated items. Events like Dubai Design Week 2023 and MaisonObjet Dubai 2023 have played a crucial role in showcasing the latest trends and innovations in furniture, design, and technology. Dubai Design Week 2023 attracted over 30,000 visitors, highlighting regional design talent and fostering collaboration among designers, companies, and manufacturers. Meanwhile, MaisonObjet Dubai 2023 provided a platform for international businesses to present their collections and engage with local buyers. The home design products market in the UAE is diverse, with each category playing a unique role in creating a pleasant living environment. Home furniture is central to establishing the character of a room, with items such as comfortable sofas for movie nights, solid dining tables for family gatherings, and supportive mattresses for a good night's sleep.
