Beirut-based gallery Orient 499, which I have previously featured here on my blog, is loved by people from our region for it's beautiful and unique selection of oriental clothes and home accessories with a modern twist. Yesterday, I have been informed by Orient 499's representative that the gallery has just been extended with around 250sq/m of new space. They have also doubled the space dedicated to their Kaftans.
Other new additions? the hamman products with lots of new collections of hand woven towels and peshtemal, a children's corner with a new collection of girls mini kaftans as well as sherwel for little boys, a room dedicated for men, a dining room with products to master l'art de la table, a bedroom with a beautifull collection of bed linen, and a living room with new designs of their iconic oriental sofas and lights,
Orient 499's representative has shared with me these lovely photos of their new extension. Can you feel the beauty and the serenity of the place just by looking at the photos?! And that beautiful courtyard in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Beirut?!! Man! I want to live inside this place!! If you're planning to visit Beirut anytime soon, you must pass by the gallery. It is located in a modern building opposite the old Holiday Inn Downtown Beirut.
