A quick glance around the Lo­tus Arts de Vivre bou­tique re­veals a ram with a di­a­mond-en­crusted head shar­ing space with a sil­ver-tailed dragon bar­ing its ebony-tipped teeth. Else­where, a clus­ter neck­lace with pearls and tour­ma­lines (pic­tured) is set against a bowl cra ed from an abalone shell. The fam­ily-owned Lo­tus Arts de Vivre, which cre­ates an eclec­tic mix of home­ware, jew­ellery and ac­ces­sories, opened its flag­ship store in the Mid­dle East, at City Walk in Dubai, last month. Known for its an­i­mal-themed creations and Asian in­flu­ences, the brand cre­ates col­lectibles from pre­cious met­als and or­ganic ma­te­ri­als in an homage to its Thai her­itage, as well as an­cient cul­tures and cra s, such as gem­cut­ting from In­dia, In­done­sian wood­carv­ing and maki-e lac­quer­work from Ja­pan. The state­ment pieces are pop­u­lar among art con­nois­seurs, royal fam­i­lies and well-known col­lec­tors such as Sharon Stone, Goldie Hawn and Glenn Close.
