Linesbybeth // Crate and Barrel

Working with Crate and Barrel was an absolute dream for us. Growing up in Dubai, we have been fortunate enough to visit their gorgeous shops in shopping malls such as MOE and Dubai Mall and have always dreamt of fitting out our future homes with their beautiful pieces. 

We first reached out to the company in early 2021 and shared our work portfolio with them. To then be commissioned by Crate and Barrel and work on a project in celebration of the UAE's 50th National Year was incredible and we can't thank them enough for giving us this opportunity. 

The collaboration involved Beth creating fifty custom line art designs, each one celebrating a key moment or place in the UAE's impressive history. Going back and forth between the team, we finalised the designs and soon got to work on the hand-drawn (7-metre) long canvas piece that was to exhibit in their Mall of the Emirates location. This was definitely a daunting process for us and our lounge (and kitchen) was soon turned into Beth's studio.

To see the final designs come to life and printed on Crate and Barrel's products, including beautiful glasses, placemats and wooden chopping boards, was very surreal for us. Sadly Beth and I weren't able to attend the three launches held in their locations but the gorgeous photos that we received from friends and family made up for this. 

Growing up in the UAE, my sister Beth and I found this project very special. It was an honour to work with such an incredible company and to celebrate our home and what it has achieved over such a short time. We look forward to working on similar projects in the future.
