Şölen Coşar is an interior designer and has her own shop in Karakum. Customers come here for help to decorate their homes, from floor to ceiling. Şölen helps them with everything from wallpaper and flooring materials to furnishing and decoration. She also designs furniture for those who wish.
– We want our customers to be super satisfied and therefore we customise furniture to their needs, says Şölen.
She and her husband have been running the company since 1999 when they opened a furniture store in Istanbul. In 2006 they returned to Cyprus and brought the furniture store with them here.
– A few years ago we realized that we did not need a huge store filled with ready-made furniture; most of our customers wanted custom-made furniture. Therefore, we now have this small shop where customers can come to get the furniture made to measure.
Once the design is complete, the company manufactures the furniture in its own workshop in Kyrenia.
Şölen Coşar also collaborates with a well-known construction company which she decorates viewing housing for. This has led to that she has gotten many Swedish and Norwegian customers who want help to decorate their homes when they move to Northern Cyprus.
