INTRODUCTION (Brief History)
In the summer of 2007, after repetitive assessment trips, we have decided to establish and set-up two companies in the UAE, with the clear vision to offer a particularly unusual combination of different products to be introduced in this particularly vibrant and dynamic part of the world. From this initial pioneer spirit two companies were conceived.
STRUCTURE OF BUSINESS

Our Warehouse is located in the RAKIA Al Hamra Free Zone, with a total lot surface area of 3600 m2 with the (1200 m2) covered surface is ideal as furniture storage facility. It is also geared to welcome professional wholesale buyers.
We clearly benefit of the full support and adamant backing from our parent company PT. ALMI Furniture Perdana ( www.almifurniture.com ), based in Indonesia Java Island, with a huge experience in the sector. With in house research and development for creative trendy designs and new markets tendencies.
ALMI Furniture has been producing and exporting furniture, handicrafts and decorative accessories for over 15 years in more than 40 different countries. Its production of an average of 250 containers per year is marketed through exhibitions in the most prominent professional fairs: Maison et Objects (Paris), IFFS (Singapore), IFFINA Jakarta (Indonesia), Dubai Index, ADNEC Home Style Show (Abu Dhabi).
OBJECTIVE IN THE UAE
Our main objective and emphasis right now in the UAE is in general retail and wholesale (including re-exporting overseas from our base in RAKIA Free Zone).
maison chic is specifically focused on handmade solid wood furniture made from teak, mango, jenkol, as well products like bamboo, rattan, banana leaves, water hyacinth, composing most of our exclusive collections.

We also supply excellent quality out-door items like gazebos, loungers, canopies, full sets synthetic rattan ranges for outdoor dining and relaxation at incredibly affordable rates.
Ethnic style furniture (solid wood & bamboo), contemporary lines, leather sofas (from Italy/China) give us the flexibility to create any possible atmosphere in homes.
Our new Docker Iron, Docker Wood and Docker Plate collections inspired by the transoceanic long haul travels embraces all our engagements on proposing a green furniture solution (in terms of recycling from an ecological point of view).These collections recently introduced are originally altered piece, with a fashionable agreeable final effect, all made from distressed wood, salvaged from old wrecked boats, in full apprehension of green concept values. The design combines modern and functional lines with usage of old materials blemished with rich history of thousands of past encounters.
The base material principally utilized in the process is from drained mango wood, a sustainable fruit tree, timbered only once it stops bearing fruits. The cabinet doors, hardware & accessories are from solid brass metal, adding an antique distinctive trait boosted by the stickers reproductions of old fashioned luggage label casually fused on the outer layer of the furniture.
We also offer villas - flats furnishing - decoration packages at incredibly convenient deals.
The global connection network instituted and created during the years has facilitated the outsourcing of extra complementary elements.
Through our contacts in China, we have access and imported unique antique pieces that blends perfectly with a modern ambiance and produces outstanding feeling of charm and comfort.
In this overall strategy we have not neglected the cozy fusion of selected Indian products as well, directly imported from the best reliable sources in Rajasthan.
The Main Store in Ras Al Khaimah (1000m2) is opened for private buyers but aims as well at professional. All our exclusive ranges are properly displayed inside the showroom. The reason behind the choice of RAK: is the dynamism of the development of infrastructure (property developments, industrial boom, and friendly environment). RAK is witnessing a significant influx of population on the various properties made available on the coastline.
Our newest addition is the Dubai branch: the shop opened its doors early this year on a prime location in Jumeirah Beach road, close to the city’s undistinguishable landmarks of Burj Al Arab and Jumeirah Beach Hotel, exceptional and unique pieces are arranged and presented perpetually for the customers delight. (Displays are periodically and regularly exchanged)
The reasons behind our decision to select Dubai: it is unthinkable and inconceivable not to be present in Dubai. The city’s highly ranked status as a globally recognized business hub and the metropolis state of the art infrastructure is certainly the driving force in its popularity.
Presenting and proposing our products to an ethnically diverse population with a multitude of expatriates from different corners of the world.
