About David



David Rae has over 40 years experience in the design, project management and installation of domestic interior renovation and fit out projects. Architecturally trained David is able to bring an invaluable design, vision and architectural perspective to bear on every detail of a client’s project whether it be a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom or other personal living space.


David learned his craft in a variety of roles in the UK where he worked for over 30 years. During this time he has accumulated an extraordinary breadth and depth of product knowledge, technical skill along with an essential ability to understand and translate a client’s needs and vision and to then bring his expertise to bear to translate that vision into reality.


Technical Expertise, Effective Communication


David has been operating in the interior design and renovation sector in Dubai since 2009 and seeing a gap in the market for a competent, reliable and highly experienced provider he established “David Rae, Designs of Merit”.


The key to David’s success is drawing on this extensive professional experience in order to develop relationships and to consult and communicate effectively with both clients and carefully selected partners and service providers in order to guarantee a successful outcome. His years of experience in the UK and Dubai means he has a detailed understanding of a very broad range of designs, styles, technical issues, statutory requirements and costs and how these variables may impact upon the project delivery and overall aesthetics and functional aspects of the house as a whole. It is this ability which is fundamental in establishing and delivering each client’s exacting requirements and standards.


Each project is very personal and unique and David understands that for the client, in the absence of professional guidance, the process can at best be challenging and stressful and at worst time consuming and costly both financially and in the end result. David and his hand-picked team of seasoned professionals, all experts in their field and providing the best that Dubai has to offer, offer you a turnkey solution to lead you through and manage the process in an efficient, creative and effective way, giving you the best possible result.
