We’ve been thinking about getting a little summer house. The 130,000 square-meter island of Nurai, located northeast of Abu Dhabi city, is about to be transformed into a absolutely stunning resort and exclusive private residential estates. New York based design firm, Studio Dror, led by Dror Benshetrit, and Paris-based AW2 will turn the area into a boutique luxury hotel resort with 60 suites, 31 beach front estates and 36 water villas.


The gorgeous multi-story water villas will span 515 square meters each and be made up of three bedrooms, four bathrooms, a private rooftop garden with a spa pool, private infinity pool, multiple decks, outdoor barbecue area, gourmet kitchen and concealed service quarters. As for the private Seaside residences, each will contain five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a private beach and garden, rooftop garden with spa pool, indoor reflecting pools, concealed service quarters, entertainment patios, outdoor dining areas, chef and show kitchens, and outdoor showers. The resort is due to open in 2010 and the prices for the residences start at $20 million.

studio-dror-pick-chair.jpgWe had a party. We bought/borrowed/stole some chairs so all of our friends aren’t sitting on the floor. Now comes the big question, what the hell do we do with all these chairs?
Studio Dror seems to have answered our prayers with the BBB Pick Chair. When not in use by your stylish party guests, you can unfold them and hang them on the wall and add a little style to your place instead of trying to find a dark corner to hide them. Available through Studio Dror’s online store for $1800.
