Hispano Décor International, a company of exceptional quality, experience and reputation, was formed with the aim of offering complete and customised decoration projects to the elite community of the Arabian Gulf. Interior design is, at its best, a ‘synthesis of visionary concepts, architecture and site.’ It is with this belief that the designers, along with technical professionals, strive to bring it all together in order to satisfy the myriad needs and fantasies of Hispano Décor International’s clients. With new technology spreading around the world, trade barriers coming down and financial markets being deregulated, consumer tastes have crossed many borders. The need for change continues to accelerate, forming the driving force

The company also carries out the contracting and execution of all their projects. The structure of the company enables Hispano Décor International to carry the full process, from the development of the designs to the completion of the projects. For the ultimate details that require professional specialised skills and talents, Hispano Décor International counts on a select group of top specialists and its sister concerns from Spain that have been working with the company for decades.
