Best interior designers’ work on show in Jeddah

JEDDAH: A fair showcasing the work of some of the Kingdom’s finest and most innovative interior designers has opened in Jeddah.
Tasmeem Fair, a non-profit initiative by the Saudi Art Council, is open to all until Nov. 28 at SAC’s Gold Moor headquarters in the Shatea district.
Under the patronage of Princess Jawaher bint Majid, organizers selected designers who were best able to apply the concept of reflection to their displays. More than 300 participants had applied.
“The council’s main purpose is to promote art in all its forms, and for the first time, interior designers have been selected to be a part of the movement instigated by the council. They’re an integrated part of the art society and I am proud to have them here under one roof,” said Nawaf Nasser, who masterminded Tasmeem.
The fair’s displays are varied and 16 designers have been selected, 11 of whom are women.
“I was surprised and very pleased with the level of unprecedented professionalism of our Saudi interior designers,” said Princess Jawaher bint Majid. “The volume of portfolios we received is proof of their enthusiasm, elevated sense of style, and their level of awareness and intellect. This is a chance for the audience to get to know more about interior design and I’m confident that each season will be better than the previous.”

Sarajevo eager to see stronger ties with Riyadh, Bosnian House speaker tells Saudi Arabia's Prince Sultan

  • Prince Sultan bin Salman met Speaker Safet Softic in Sarajevo on Thursday to discuss further co-operation between their countries

The president of the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage (SCTH), Prince Sultan bin Salman, met the speaker of the House of Peoples of the Parliamentary Assembly of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Sarajevo to discuss further co-operation between the nations.

The meeting came on the sidelines of Prince Sultan’s official visit to the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Bosnia’s speaker of the House of Peoples, Safet Softic, said: “The visit of a senior Saudi official to Bosnia is a sign that communication between the two countries is constantly growing and improving.”

Softic was eager to see economic relations between Bosnia and the Kingdom become as strong as political and humanitarian relations between them.

Prince Sultan said: “It is our religious and humanitarian duty to support Bosnia, and King Salman has given special attention to Bosnia’s cause since the war started in the days of the late King Fahd and until justice was achieved and the war ended with Saudi Arabia’s support.”

The SCTH chief explained that Saudi Arabia is investing in Bosnia’s future as a country located in the heart of Europe with a future in the European market.

Prince Sultan also visited the King Fahd Cultural Center in Sarajevo. He praised the center, saying it is one of the largest and most important support projects provided by the Kingdom to Bosnia and Herzegovina. 

King Salman “attended the opening ceremony of the center,” said Prince Sultan, who was accompanied by the Saudi ambassador to Bosnia and Herzegovina. “The center should be a cultural addition to the culture prevailing here.”
