I've visited Orient 499 during my first trip to Beirut in 2010 and I believe it's still one of the most astonishing shops I've ever entered (in the most extraordinary city I've ever visited). I am so enthusiastic that I've placed it within the top 5 things to see on my personal Beirut Guide for traveler friends... and actually Ilaria and Andrea loved it, hadn't you guys? :)

Orient 499 is a boutique featuring exclusive, original handicrafts and designer's creations. The founders are Middle-Eastern art lovers with an amazing taste for tradition and beyond belief sense for modernity.



Items vary from antiques to modern furniture, clothes and accessories mainly made in Lebanon, but also Turkey, Egypt, Morocco... what I've bought? A pair of decorated moccasins highly recommended by my dear friend Raffa, some delicately shaped and scented soaps and a unique ring.




Recently we've also received a gift from my lovely lovely beyroutina friend Tamima: a stunning silver pomegranate box for my collection. Many many thanks again Tami!


Check out Orient 499 Istagram profile and enjoy the gallery below. I can't wait to shop there again soon!

I've met HEMA for the first time in the Marais and I thought it was the genius version of an H&M for housewares. Relatively low pricing of generic house goods, often with a Nordic and minimalist design.

The first HEMA opened in Amsterdam in 1926. Since 2014 HEMA is present in France, Spain and the UK.

They also have other products that I would recommend checking out, like:

Find here below my selection of what is interesting to buy for your home now at HEMA:


1. Vase in sturdy and glazed ceramic, 22 cm high - £5.00
2. Cheese Knives - £10.00
3. Ball-shaped BBQ - £20.00
4. Salad Spoons - £5.00
5. Woven burlap pouf - £35.00
6. Tea Towels - £2.00
7. Hammok! - £15.00
8. Thermal Jug - £20.00
