Saudi Gaudy Style


Since I moved to KSA, many times I have heard the ornate formal styles preferred by most Saudis referred to as “Saudi Gaudy.” This would be a typical example of that. Lots of intricate fancy details, almost too elegant to dare sit on – which isn’t really a problem because it’s not very comfortable either. I prefer more casual and cozy!

    I’d feel like a prince using a sofa like that one! So glad you’re back doing your Jeddah CDP blog again, Susie!

    The Persians leave this kind of leftover junk in the alley here.
    It’s called Discards From The Persian Palace.

    I’ve sat on chairs and couches similar to that and this type of furniture is uncomfortable, it encourages bad posture IMO. I much prefer my comfy micro fiber couch, it doesn’t look like $5000 but it’s great to sit on.

    Does look rather uninviting. I like the term, Saudi Gaudy
