International floral and interior designer Dennis Kneepkens has succesfully finished his first hotel opening. After launching a brand new flower and lifestyle boutique in the city of Suleimaniyah, Iraq, the youngster was asked to do the decoration of the brand new Copthorne Hotel Baranan. It is one of the city's first hotels that is part of an international hotel branch.
Dennis Kneepkens traveled to Iraq in order to be part of the change of the country. Setting up a brand new flower and lifestyle boutique shop, the designer now sells European quality fresh flowers and lifestyle products from European brands to the people of Iraq.
