For the last couple of weeks we’ve been looking for a decent dresser and a lamp for the dining room. But it seems to be impossible to find anything suitable. Today I went to explore the furniture stores on Sheikh Zayed Road. Again nothing: Too small, too expensive, too not us. But I literally stumbled upon Candy, a super pretty and super practical stool by Calligaris. You can open them and stuff their hollow with things like cat toys for example. 🙂 And since our place has become very grey, black and white – although we never ever planned it, I actually never ever wanted grey, black and white furniture – the colourful Candys light up our living room. They had them in all kinds of colours and colour combinations. It was really hard for me to pick. And all the other stuff we don’t need: I fell in love with a cuckoo clock, and all those little coffee tables… And the lamps… unfortunately not the kind of lamps we need. OK, if you need a cuckoo clock by any chance – let me know, because I happen to know a store which has the coolest you’ve ever seen.
