Noting inspiration from the cities where Elie Saab's craftsmen are based, namely Beirut and Paris, the brand's refined silhouettes and detailing have taken the form of a furniture and lifestyle collection. The eponymous fashion label was first launched as a Haute Couture line, expanding into ready-to-wear and accessories.
“Broadening the scope of our product offering has been our strategy for the past few years," says designer Elie Saab. "We are working towards an architectural and lifestyle expression that translates my style of living through the development of Real Estate projects and the creation of Furniture and Home collection to complement this vision.

The first collection reflects the heritage of ELIE SAAB’s signature. It has a distinctive style combining contemporary and timeless. We will be developing down the line exclusive and limited edition pieces to cater to art connoisseurs and collectors.”

Entirely manufactured in Italy, the first collection entitled ELIE SAAB MAISON is distributed by Corporate Brand Maison under the guidance of Massimiliano Ferrari.
"In this time of uncertainty, it is with great enthusiasm that we begin this new journey alongside ELIE SAAB, intensified by the strong desire to continue dreaming and making people dream, it will take us to the heart of the Milan Fashion District where the first ELIE SAAB MAISON collection will be revealed," says Massimiliano Ferrari, CEO of Corporate Brand Maison.

"A collection that perfectly blends together all essential elements of the project: the uniqueness of the ELIE SAAB Brand signature, the research in design, and the artisan excellence of Made in Italy. ELIE SAAB MAISON is an extremely innovative interior design project, immediately thought of in '360 degrees': the unique furniture pieces are only the starting point of something much bigger, something that goes from hospitality to hotels and residences.
An example is the Grand Blue Tower Interiors by ELIE SAAB in Emaar Beachfront, Dubai: here, apartments and common areas are in fact furnished with the objects of the collection."

Depicting the innate femininity and elegance the brand is renowned for, the gorgeous collection comprises delicate creams, pastel shades of grey contrasted with the shiny finish of metals, bronzes, marbles and noble stones. Categorised into day and night, the pieces are designed for the living, dining and bedroom.
Recalling the traditional scents of the Middle East and Art Deco influences from Saab's Paris home to '60s and '70s architecture and design, the timeless collection draws inspiration from the places and things the designer has admired over the years.
The ELIE SAAB MAISON collection will be available at the Milan showroom from the second half of 2020, and at the network of exclusive boutiques located in the key cities of the ELIE SAAB world. Click here for more.
