This is a very traditional Bedouin style seating arrangement. Cushions are covered in a colorful tribal print and are paired with beautiful Persian carpets. The cushions are usually placed on the floor or ground, but sometimes an elevated wooden frame might be used. This red patterned woven cloth on the cushions is a very typical Bedouin design. Many restaurants here offer seating like this and many families also may have something similar in their homes too. It’s actually very comfortable.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
