Danube Home, the one-stop retail destination for complete home solutions, has opened its first bespoke store in Dubai, UAE, on Sheikh Zayed Road.

The global home improvement and home furnishing retail industry is expected to reach an estimated value of $2.292 billion by 2019. The major drivers of this industry are increasing new and existing home sales, increasing disposable income, rising consumer spending, remodelling and renovation of homes, urbanisation, and increasing middle class population. Innovation in products, cost control, supply chain and logistics management will further drive this industry, said a report.
According to some reports, GCC’s home improvement and home furnishing industry will grow significantly during next five years.
The 60,000-sq-ft flagship store showcases the complete product line of the company. Danube Home provides customised solutions across various categories: Living – sofas, bedrooms, chandeliers, home decorations, dinner ware, glassware, bedding, fragrances; Bath – shattafs, mixers, bathroom accessories, massage bathtubs, saunas and bathroom tiles; and garden and outdoor – balcony sets, rattan furniture, gazebos, swings, kids play range.
Furthermore, the customised kitchens, electrical and hardware products complete the range at Danube Home.
Adel Sajan, director, Danube Group, said: “We are extremely pleased to open the flagship store of the region in Dubai. We believe in range, convenience and value hence we provide the best-in-class customised solutions along with our products. Danube Home provides thousands of wallpapers and exclusive curtain designs along with different types of wooden flooring, which one can mix and match to have a truly unique home. All in all, it means that one can actually match the pillows and comforters to curtains and wallpapers.”
“The icing on the cake is free of cost design visualisation and 3D renderings, which can be done for all the customers in record time, by a team of qualified interior designers across showrooms. Customers can just walk in with their floor plans and get their interiors designed based on their individual taste and preferences selecting products from the widest range that we offer. We want to make sure that customers exactly know how the living, bath, garden and outdoor or kitchen would look like even before they buy a product,” said Sajan, Director.
“All our products are very reasonably priced and we have observed that 95 per cent of customers who come to our stores for design creation, actually buy from us. We source products from all over the world- USA, Germany, Turkey, Spain, India, Malaysia, Vietnam, China and Italy to maintain an enticing range.”
Rizwan Sajan, founder and chairman, Danube Group, added: “I congratulate the Danube Home team on the opening of their new store in the region. With this new store, Danube has extended their commitment to offer its customers in the Middle East the best of luxury retail experience.”
