Carol Sukkar- Owner of Home and Soul

Home

I was brought up in a showroom, as my father was the exclusive supplier of the British heritage brands Wedgwood and Royal Dolton in Amman, Jordan. Growing up, the showroom became my second home. I spent most of my days there, helping out, wrapping gifts and interacting with customers, as far back as I recall. I eventually officially joined the business and was eager to expand it, but my dad had less ambitious plans. During that time, both my husband and myself had moved to Dubai, and it was becoming increasingly difficult to work remotely.

So after several years living in Dubai, I decided to do my own thing, with the help and support of my husband Wael Sukkar. Having lived in Dubai for almost 19 years, both my husband and I found out that the furniture scene in Dubai became all looking the same. A lot of leather, velvet and dark colours mixed with semi modern styles.

During our trip to Paris, we stumbled on Blanc d’ivoire and fell in love with it instantly. The light and subtle colours gave us the true sense of a homey feeling. The furniture is inspired by antique pieces but made to fit in our new times and makes your home look as if its on the French Riviera. We came to a quick realization that Blanc Divoire would give the Dubai residents a one-of-a-kind character that nobody else can fulfil. After a couple of years spent in Dubai, Home and Soul, was opened as the evolution of many years of traveling to beautiful places and many years of experience within Dubai and the design industry as a whole.

Formerly Blanc D’ivoire, Home and Soul Dubai provides a unique concept and lifestyle store like no other. Owned and curated by Carol and Wael Sukkar, Home and Soul is a true ‘ hidden gem’ found in Um suqiem 1. Selling beautiful home decor, lighting, furniture, textiles, gorgeous interior pieces. Carol and Wael Sukkar who bring their decades of design experience to this ‘home away from home’ store.

At Home and Soul, I’m dedicated to contributing to a more sustainable future. By choosing our furniture, you join us on this journey, making a conscious decision that aligns with your values and helps create a more beautiful and healthy planet for generations to come. Remember, sustainability is a continuous journey, not a destination. Let’s take this step together and create a future where style and responsibility walk hand-in-hand.
