Shopping for modern design in Marrakech

A Designer’s Guide to Marrakech – shopping for modern design in Marrakech

Maison Lab – new modern store in Marrakech

I feel I know this man – his taste and ours coincide perfectly. Modern design in Marrakech is easily found in this design-rich city.

Shopping for modern design in Marrakech MaisonLabNew York interior designer Martin Raffle recently opened his studio, MaisonLab, in the heart of the ancient medina. It is in Riad Laarouss, very close to Riad Sapphire and Spa. It brims with modern objects and furnishings – directly reflecting my belief that Marrakech is totally modern (and ancient).

I’m so enthusiastic about modern Marrakech design that not only our boutique riad hotel in Marrakech but also my own home is filled with finds from Marrakech – from leather rugs, to Bani Ourain rugs, kelims transformed into seating, handwoven fabrics for drapes, wool blankets, leather club chairs, berber cushion covers, metal cutwork lanterns, tassels, baskets for shopping and stylish storage, leather goods. You can also find local craftsmen to fashion what you envisage if you don’t find it in the market – like our leather-covered fan.

Marrakech is also a great source for wonderful perfumes, artisan soaps, shower gel, and shampoos.

Marrakech is worth a visit just to view what Marrakchis produce.
