About us


Frank Luca and Aida Kawas, two lovers of Middle-Eastern arts, teamed up to create Orient 499, a trendy boutique which would accommodate at the same time their taste for tradition and their sense for modernity, all the while satisfying their crave for something new.

Orient 499 is a boutique but also an atelier, featuring exclusive, original handicrafts and designer's creations. Items vary from antiques to modern furniture, clothes and accessories mainly made in Lebanon, but also Syria, Turkey, Egypt, Morocco...

Transcending time, Orient 499 remains the anchor of oriental tradition.
