When you walk through its wooden front door, there is something inexplicably calming about the home of Faiza Rangoonwala, passionate bespoke furniture designer and founder of The Edit trunk shows, which bring top Pakistani designers to a discerning Dubai clientele. The cool marble floors, the small terracotta warriors that greet you as you step into the foyer, the lush backyard that can be seen from every room in the house, and the overall ambiance make you feel immediately at ease. “The theme of the house is contemporary with a touch of modern. I love a home that looks clean and crisp, so that’s why there is a lot of white and light gray, even though they’re so difficult to maintain,” Rangoonwala explains.

Rangoonwala has quite the travel bug, always looking for the next best detox retreats and spas around the globe, and always searching the world for new pieces to give her home that extra special touch. The three Buddhist monk statues that sit in her dining room were purchased in a market in Chiang Mai, Thailand, while a beautiful hand-painted urn with Arabic calligraphy was bought on her first trip to Istanbul, and the adjacent jars placed next to it were bought on a trip to India. “Decorating has always been a great passion of mine – I love rearranging the layout of our home. My husband is an avid art collector, and I have been designing furniture for the last 17 years, so I’m constantly experimenting within my home with new designs and concepts.” Rangoonwala is also a fan of modern décor, with her go-to interior store being Andrew Martin in DIFC. “I picked up some really cool and quirky pieces from there, and they’ve really added so much character to the living area,” she shares.

When relaxing at home, her favorite spot is the scenic backyard, overlooking the pool and the beautiful Emirates Golf Club. In the evenings, Faiza, along with her husband and children, spend time by the outdoor fireplace perfecting their quest for the ultimate burger – a family passion and ongoing journey. “I really believe in homes bringing good or negative karma into your life, and mashallah this home has brought us so much more joy, happiness, success, and good times with family and friends. It’s really been a lucky home for us.”
