In addition to the exhibition, in 2016 House of Today launched The SHOP, an offering of home and office products in collaboration with  WallpaperSTORE* and guest curator Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte. This special collaboration between 3 partners outlines their joint commitment to nurture and showcase internationally the strong design talents found in Lebanon.
The exhibition shop features a combination of new commissioned objects to Lebanese designers and existing iconic WallpaperSTORE* objects from international designers. Following the exhibition shop at Le Yacht Club Beirut, the new objects will permanently be part of the WallpaperSTORE* and available for online purchase worldwide.
