My folks were all into amateur dramatics in a big way and used to get all sorts of furniture made up for show on stage. So, a drama group might be the way to go for contacts. For example, Dubai Drama Group (tel: (04) 333 1155; website: www.dubaidramagroup.org ...though the website seems to be down. Or just google 'amateur dramatic groups" + Dubai.

Thanks for that...I didn't really check further into the example I gave...my aim was just to highlight stage/set designers associated with amateur drama clubs, as a possible source of contact.

I will sell you my living room sofas (3+2+1+1)...They are great for a stunt, look good from a distance, and not necessarily serviceable...

Youll thank me later...
