one of the coolest things about designing in egypt is that almost anything can be customized to suit our needs and tastes; upholstered seating is no exception. most of the firms below offer both local and imported fabrics, giving you a nice variety of pricing, quality and designs to choose from. if you don’t like any of the fabric options they have available, ask if you can buy your own. most will allow you, but will ask you for a sample first to ensure the right quality.
