Fendi Casa 2016 Collection Is All About Blue Velvet and Metals| Luxury Furniture



One of the furniture brands I always look forward to checking out their new designs is non other than luxury brand Fendi Casa. This January they presented their latest collection for 2016 and it is all about their new favorite fabric, blue velvet, and beautiful gold and brass metals.  Velvet is definitely one of the strongest finishes making a grand comeback recently. Almost all furniture brands were adopting this versatile yet tricky finish. Many attempts are being made to make it more practical, heavy duty, yet silky smooth.

Arabnet Beirut 2016 | March1-3 | Events




The Longest Running Digital Conference in the Middle East is back!


Lebanon’s key decision makers will gather for the 7th ArabNet Beirut conference, the longest running digital conference in the Middle East. Executives from the country’s top institutions have been actively involved in the success of the conference over the years, with notables such as Neemat Frem (President & CEO, Indevco Group), Nayla Tueni (CEO, Annahar Newspaper) and Michel Elefteriades (the Emperor).

About 50% of ArabNet Beirut’s attendants are CXOs, cementing the conference as the go to rendez­vous for top decision makers and innovators. Few of those leaders and entrepreneurs have gone on to found further endeavours that bear fruit today, making Beirut the next best market for startups and digital savvy people. “The key is quality, intelligence and the ability to connect to the right decision makers” says Omar Christidis, CEO and founder of ArabNet. ArabNet Beirut’s coverage of cutting edge topics from across the digital landscape builds on research from the ArabNet Business Intelligence arm. The most comprehensive report on top app trends in the MENA was the first report to be launched, recently, and is set to be followed by a bigger report on digital investment landscapes.

“These have been possible thanks to our human capital and connections in the market” explains Omar Christidis. “The quality and insights of these reports, and our conferences at large, are also possible because of our deep and long­term relationship with the industry”. The head of the conference and content team, Racha Ghamlouch, promises an experience that will tap into the Beirut startup and digital ecosystem scene. Five competitions are lined up for the event: the Startup Demo, Ideathon, Lightning Talks, Creative Battle as well as the Innovation Avenue, a hardware­focused challenge that brings together geeks and tech fanatics in one place. “Attendees and participants come from across the region and the world to attend this 3­day event” adds Racha. “Over 40% of startups meet the right investors during our conferences, while 80% manage to meet and set relationships with key decision makers and the media.” “This year we’re going for the 100% mark” finishes off Racha. ArabNet Beirut 2016 will be held on March 1­2­3 and is expected to be one of the most exclusive ArabNet events yet. Past ArabNet events have notably attracted top speakers, participants, and partners from corporations such as Banque Du Liban,, Touch, Alfa, TBWA, Facebook, DMS, Majid Al Futtaim, JWT, STC, Twitter, Starcom, Criteo, SkyNews, VISA, Leo Burnett, Deloitte, LBC, Microsoft, Uber, Vivaki, GE, MakerStudios (Disney), FP7, 500Startups, OMD, International New York Times, and many more.

ArabNet is the hub for Arab digital professionals and entrepreneurs, creating online and offline platforms for them to connect and learn. ArabNet’s vision is to grow the web and mobile sectors in the Arab region. It also aims to build business bridges across the MENA, stimulate the growth of the Arab knowledge economy, and support the creation of new businesses and job opportunities for youth through conferences, partnerships, and competitions.
