The Living Room - ⏪⏪ Swipe slowly.
Another part of the traditional Kuwaiti home (in the past and present) in Al-Uthman Museum. However, this one here mimics the looks of the past mostly, specially with the cushions instead of sofas or couches. Typically, the living room in a Kuwaiti home is also called (Sálah, eng: Hall; or Dar il Ga`dah). I've cropped a portion of this panorama so it is not exactly 360 degrees, and the portion was cut is actually a door leading to another room (called the merchant's room or office). On the ground we see the metallic indoors hearth (called Dawwah), a favorite till this very day for many homes but probably now it is lit outside for safety, and here it is actually just a light fictures and no real embers are fired. On such hearth, tea, coffee, or even chestnuts are to be prepared. Tea specifically has a special taste when done on such hearth. Glass displays here keep some traditional toys for kids back in those days, as well as other items related to the household.
I remember the major challenge for this panorama was the placement of the tripod in the first place on the light (and apparently very old) rug which kept on sliding and wrinkling. Also, the white balance was somewhat shaky despite using my WB Disc to calibrate it (as I've done with all panoramas in this place!)
