well educated in all aspects of art and culture. Having acquired
extraordinary collections from all corners of the world, the elite
in society expect nothing short of perfection from craftsmen and
materials alike. They demand sophisticated panoramas for displaying
those treasures and hosting lavish parties.
Beirut Interiors, the

and take a grand tour inside the eloquent spaces they are privileged
enough to call “home”.
