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.

How can I buy a set like it? We are desperate to find one, please help!
Mazin – If you are in Jeddah, there are many places you can buy Bedouin sets like this one. I have seen shops all over the place that make them or carry them. I’ve even seen some in Hyper Panda.

Do you sell this item. Yoou see, I love Bedouin Sofas and intend on placing them on my balcony. If you will sell it, I will give you a maximum of $AUS 300-400!
I could never get up with my knees.
Great photo and interesting info. I LOVE the persian rug. The sofa does look comfortable. I just caught up on your blog photos after spending 2 weeks in Europa. Kind regards
I like the low sofas, and each pattern bedouin and persian invidually, but the juxtaposition is striking–I’m still not sure whether I like the particular combo or not. Maybe a different combo would work better, or maybe I would get used to it. Striking photo, which I do like! 🙂
