Working with Ramzi simply raised the bar of what one might expect from an interior designer. His commitment to the client, his contagious enthusiasm and his dedication to always satisfy the customer wishes have rendered this a fun rather than an arduous job. I look forward to working with him again!

Wanting a more traditional bed, the client and I went to the best market for salvaged architectural and decorative pieces in cairo – ezbet belal.  Using an antique balcony rail and infusing that with straight modern lines, the bed stays true to the style of the home it’s in.  The “Gouna Bed” uses the same azizi wood as the headboard and offers two storage drawers on both sides, as well as a middle secret compartment.

The “Gouna Bed” is designed to be romantic in the night. By placing salt rock lighting, from Siwa Creations, on both sides of the bed gives the whole space a warm feel, while highlighting the intricacies of the bed’s antique back.
