The  brand began almost as a happy accident, with Debs creating pieces for her own home, without the intention of launching a company. Debs reveals, “As time passed and people were responding positively to my designs, and as my designs started to have a strong distinct identity, I felt that I had to brand it in order for consumers to understand the story and the reason behind what I do”.

Nada’s diverse background led her to combine the cool minimalism of the Japanese aesthetic with the rich traditions of Arabic pattern and warmth of materials to create a unique expression of Eastern design through her interior pieces. At the heart of Nada’s work remains an idea that is ever present in her designs – that of preserving one’s cultural roots while forging an identity for herself, her compatriots, and for the world, of the modern Arab.
