coasters, trivets and placemats

The beautiful Images d’Orient collection of homewares was developed by Peggy Raphael Dabar of Lebanon.

Peggy says ‘I still remember the feeling of despair at the sight of an ancient house being destroyed, a deep-rooted site being modernised, an old precious fabric being replaced! … I came to realise that designing items that will promote the richness of our Mediterranean heritage was a dream we had to achieve.’

Peggy travelled from Lebanon to the United States where she took a Masters Degree in Fine Arts in Boston. When she returned to Lebanon, Peggy and her brother Charbel  started to create day-to-day products that combined the charm of their heritage with the contemporary look of PVC and silicone. The collections include coasters, trivets and placemats. Washable and heat resistant, these are beautiful, practical an extremely long lasting.

The Images d’Orient designs draw their inspiration from North Africa, the Middle East and the Mediterranean. Each design has it’s own story.
