‘There is a high demand for professional interior designers’

DUBAI: For over a decade residents have become more aware and educated on the interior designs and want their surroundings designed by highly educated professionals. The huge impact of social media and frequent foreign travels are one of the reasons people want their living spaces to look unique, full of meaningful pieces, said by Seema Ahmed Al Mansoory, CEO and Founder of Eva Interiors in an exclusive interview with The Gulf Today.

The local market has a huge potential and the demand for designers is high, especially those who have graduated from reputable universities and want to try their limits, she said.

“The residents in UAE, especially millennials, are a lot in love with sophisticated designs done by professional designers. This has paved way for the huge market of highly qualified designers who have obtained degrees from reputable universities and boast work experiences with leading names in the industry,” she said.

Seema graduated as architect from the American University of Sharjah in 2006 and joined a German firm which was at that time doing great to fulfil mega projects of hotels and others worth billions of dirhams. “When I joined in 2006 after graduation, it was peak time and our firm had mega projects and the recession came in 2008 that caused our  firm to close down even though we had three projects under way. But this was a turning point in my career and I started from scratch to set up my own firm and opened an office in Fujairah. I utilised my contacts from university to my professional days in the German firm’s local office in Dubai to get interior designing projects,” she narrated her journey.

To cater for the high demand of her work she opened another office in Dubai with a total staff of around two dozen including architects, designers and others. In over eight years, she has been part of interior designing projects of local celebrities, offices of governments and residence belonging to members of royal families in different emirates in the UAE.
