It’s cel­e­bra­tion time with fam­ily at the Achrafieh home of Michèle Philip­pi­des, owner of lux­ury bou­tique Manasseh. The Beirut based re­tailer, spe­cial­iz­ing in high-end home dé­cor and art de la ta­ble pieces from Christofle, Bac­carat, Bernar­daud and Gien to name a few, has taken city-chic into un­char­tered realms of so­phis­ti­ca­tion. Her new­build apart­ment, which en­joys views of Beirut’s scenic area, is a love let­ter to her trav­els, pas­sions and the lure of an­tique ac­cents in a modern in­te­rior.

The din­ing room is no dif­fer­ent; sim­ple, un­der­stated, yet with a dra­matic crys­tal Bac­carat chan­de­lier as the show-stop­per. Both ends of the ta­ble were de­signed by two dif­fer­ent gen­er­a­tions, Michèle Manasseh-philip­pi­des and her sis­ter Claude Manasseh-issa on one side and Tina Philip­pi­des, Michèle’s daugh­ter, on the other, although there was no gap. In­stead, they have seam­lessly in­te­grated modern and clas­sic ap­peal, adopt­ing a fes­tive, yet dif­fer­ent ap­proach.
