Oh wow! It feels great to post again on the blog! I'm not going to give excuase or dwell on my lack of posting on the blog. So let's get starigh to business. First thing's first. I'm sure by now you have heard about Nada Debs' showcase at AlOthman Pop Up. This is the second event I started working on and I'm so excited about it!
AlOthman's Pop Up will be hosting a special showcase of furniture and home accessories by Lebanese brand Nada Debs. The opening reception will be held in the presence of the designer on the evening of Sunday 25th September, and will continue until Thursday 29th September.
Nada Debs' designs deserve a lot of respect and appreciation. She has successfully managed to embody our Arabic culture using contemporary designs. Very very few home accessories designer managed to present us with such uniqueness and creativity, and the proof of Nada Debs's success is the hundreds of copied designs by other "designers", but you know what they say 'Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery that mediocrity can pay to greatness.'
According to Nada Debs' website, the designer, of Lebanese origin, was raised in Japan. She studied interior architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design in the United States, starting her first company in the UK, designing and producing custom furniture. After a 40 year hiatus, Nada Debs’ Levantine spirit brought her home to Beirut, where she discovered that designs for modern Middle Eastern furniture were non-existent. She then established her company East and East, where the brand fuses Eastern tradition and minimalism. Her multicultural approach attracted the attention of the design world. Today Nada operates from Beirut and is represented globally, delivering to the world.
