Tawfiq Al Nimri

Tawfiq Al Nimri is considered to be one of the most influential Jordanian singers. In his early days, he sang Jordanian folklore songs at radio stations across the country. Consequently, the Jordanian folklore style has large effect on the design of the room, such as the incorporation of the Arabic “majles”, or the seats below the beds. Furthermore, Jordanian folklore colours are dominant in the room’s palette, highlighting his musical style. It is believed that as a young boy, he was shy and did not like to sing in public. To avoid this, he used to put his head in a clay water pot and sing so no one would hear him. Some people also say he found both the water and the echo to be beautiful. Hence, the bedside tables are designed to mimic those clay pots.
