Chris Barnes

The owner and founder of Broadway Interiors, Chris Barnes, is one of the region’s most prolific interior designers, having delivered more than 900 projects during the last two decades.

While his contribution to design is well-documented, what Barnes, 54, does not receive enough praise for is his humility and generosity. It is commendable that, in challenging economic times, Broadway Interiors completed the full refurbishment of non-profit firm British Business Group Dubai's office for free. The 18-person studio also expanded to Saudi Arabia and Russia in 2019, opening an office in the kingdom. Broadway Interiors also expects to see revenue rise by more than a third in 2019 and has an order book that includes projects for the likes of engineering giant WSP.
