customer review

“In life you encounter great people and great businesses in the most unlikely of places - Elmarie and her team at The Green Room located in Dar es Salaam is one such person and business. Always professional, courteous, and kind, highly competent, organised, and helpful, Elmarie and her business, The Green Room, reflect one another. The Green Room fully furnished my three-bedroom house, and then my two-bedroom apartment at Fumba Town in Zanzibar. All the furniture and homeware were locally sourced and beautifully made by Tanzanian carpenters. The Green Room will fully furnish your lodge, hotel, villa and home with sustainably sourced materials and quality furniture. Thanks a million! Our family would love to host you on the island for a home cooked meal enjoyed comfortably around the dining room table you supplied.”

customer review

Elmarie and her team at the Green Room have been truly fantastic. As we were furnishing our place in Zanzibar from abroad, Elmarie’s consistent efforts to keep us informed and her assistance in deciding on furniture combinations and sizing was much appreciated. They obviously take great pride in their work at the Green Room, which shows in the quality of the furniture that they deliver. I always loved getting my WhatsApp updates as the pieces were always exactly how we had discussed and envisioned.
