The house of Elie Saab is lending its signature elegance and craftsmanship to the world of ceramics. As an extension of the Lebanese couturier’s Maison range of furniture, Elie Saab has joined forces with Rak Ceramics on a new Bathroom and Surface Collection. Elie Saab Jr, CEO of Elie Saab Group said, “We are working towards offering our clients and brand’s enthusiastic a 360-degree experience of the Elie Saab lifestyle.”
Given the detailed work that goes into the designer’s dreamy clothing, combined with the ceramic giant’s decades-long expertise, the collection is made using fine raw materials, showcasing luxe marble textures in both traditional and modern color palettes. Offering something for every home, the collaboration is made up of five lines: Glamour, Liquid Metal, Royal, Soft Lux, and Travertinum. For those who lean towards moody interiors, the Glamour collection includes onyx, rich palissandro, and dark marble finishes. Liquid Metal features touches of striking gold juxtaposed with concrete, while the aptly-named Royal and Soft Lux collections aim to add refined elegance and luxury to any living space. Lastly, the Travertinum collection with its gold accents and organic textures is an ideal fit for nature-inspired homes.
