I’ve just had such fun looking at all the mad patched furniture at the website of Beirut-based outfit Bokja.



The pair behind Bokja – Hoda Baroudi and Maria Hibri – have brought their love of vintage furniture and their passion for traditional textiles and tapestries together, and are able to make use of traditional embroidery and upholstery skills in their environment to make these wonderful unique pieces.


I’ve shown some fairly sedate (!) armchairs here, but do yourself a favour and go look at all the benches, sofas, chaise longues and poufs on offer at Bokja. The website’s just as energetic and zippy as the furniture, and you’re sure to end up with a big smile on your face, just like I have now.
