Nada Debs, of Lebanese origin, was brought up in Japan. She studied Interior Architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design in the United States and started her own design company in the UK designing and producing custom furniture. Returning to her roots in Lebanon after an absence of 40 years, Nada Debs found designs for modern Middle Eastern furniture almost non-existent. This made her determined to use her multi-cultural background to create furniture which would appeal to a global market. Nada created her company ‘East and East’ in the year 2000, which concentrates on designing, manufacturing and selling her own furniture and home accessory lines. The company now has retail outlets throughout Beirut: the Nada Debs Gallery, which displays the ‘East & East’ and ‘Contemporary’ collections and two Nada Debs Boutiques, which carry her home accessory collections.
"House of Today is just the beginning of the awareness of the importance of design in our everyday life; a much needed mission in Lebanon/today's world."
