‘THE Path to Enlightenment’

 

Lighting can be used to create various effects, from dramatic and theatrical to warm and cosy. Whatever the desired outcome, the aim is to strike a balance between light and shade, with emphasis placed on complementing the existing design. Good lighting will enhance the look of your furniture, textiles, and accessories. When choosing lighting, it is important to remember that dark colours absorb the light and pale colours reflect it. So a space with dark walls will require more lights and vice versa.

Top 5 tips on how to use mirrors and wall decoration in your home
Top 5 tips on how to use mirrors and wall decoration in your home
  1. Adding a mirror, artwork or framed photographs to a blank wall, will instantly transform it from sterile and plain to homey and personal.
  2. Mirrors are not only powerful statement pieces; they also reflect light and make spaces feel from sterile.
  3. When deciding whether to hang either a mirror or a piece of art, let yourself be guided by what looks most aesthetically pleasing.
  4. Make sure you hang artwork at eye level so it feels connected with the furniture, otherwise it can have a negative effect on the rooms’ feeling of proportion.
  5. By hanging all your wall decoration at eye level throughout your home, you will create a sense of balance and harmony.

LOCAL VOLUNTEERING
LOCAL VOLUNTEERING

We have a saying at THE One: Why just be a human being when you can be a human doing good? Our aim is to get involved and make a difference in the lives of the disadvantaged in our communities. We do this through organising regular Local Volunteering initiatives and participating in events in support of our chosen causes.

CHALLENGED EMPLOYEES

THE One currently employs 15 Challenged individuals, one of whom has been with us for over 15 years. What’s more, our three Emirati special needs employees are all celebrating 12 years with THE One this year! THE One takes every opportunity to hire Challenged Employees.

THE One’s refreshingly romantic Trendy Taupe home fashion style from their newly launched Autumn/Winter 2018 collection, puts classic femininity and understated opulence on the menu. The chic tone-on-tone colour palette of this gorgeously soft and sophisticated look creates a refreshingly light and airy feel for fall, with silver and antique mirror details and hints of soft pastels adding touches of elegance. The subtle shimmering wall design provides a charming layered backdrop for indulgently tactile fabrics, glass and copper pieces, elegant and graceful ceramics, while stylish crystal pendant chandeliers add the finishing flourish to a haven of understated opulence and sophistication.

Community

In the past year, our Onederworkers reached out to our local communities through various volunteering initiatives. To name a few:

8 Onederworkers, of which 3 Challenged, volunteered as hosts at the ‘From One Family to Another’ opening event of the new Kalimati Communication & Rehabilitation Centre. The event was attended by His Excellency Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahayan (Minister of Tolerance) and Hussein – the Arabic Super Star Singer.

 

 42 Onederworkers participated in the Abu Dhabi Mall Breast Cancer Awareness Event, for the 3rd consecutive year

41 Onederworkers participated in The Blood Donation Drive for Abu Dhabi Bloodbank

50 Onederworkers raised funds to be able to distribute 80 gift bags to the car cleaners of Dubai as part of Eid Giving

Our Onederworkers this year also reached out beyond their local communities of the workplace with our THE One Planet Plastic-free initiative. This initiative, featured on Instagram stories, saw our Onederworkers across a period of 4 months:


a) Create Awareness: through internal presentations at our huddles and tracking personal consumption of single-use plastic Onederworkers became Plastic Aware
b) Pay-it-Forward: Through the power of storytelling and Pay It Forward, we brought our awareness across to our children, their children, our families and friends
c) We took a pledge with our families and friends to break-up from single-use plastic under the motto: if we Can’t Re-use – We Refuse
d) We pledged to give up single-use plastic for a day, week or month during the Plastic Free month in July

 

Suppliers

We work with the Rugmark Foundation – a private, non-profit organisation that ensures that each rug bearing its label has been woven without the use of child labour. A portion of the purchase price of all Rugmark carpets goes towards the education, rehabilitation, and healthcare of children who have been taken out of the weaving industry. A further portion is donated by the manufacturer towards aiding impoverished weaving communities and paying for inspectors to spot-check factories, the safety of looms and working conditions of the weavers. Rugmark has thus far established seven schools, a mobile health clinic and a rehabilitation centre caring for more than 2,070 students and employing more than 90 teachers and inspectors. Eighty-five percent of all rugs sold by THE One bear the Rugmark label.
