Quand la vie envoie des malheurs, Maison Titus en fait des fleurs

When life sends bad luck, Maison Titus turns it into flowers

We make an appointment, we ring the bell, we are welcomed into a bath of light and serenity. Maison Titus has to be earned, it is one of the most confidential addresses in Beirut. There Sherine Geagea, also a nature photographer who she immortalizes by trying to stop time and the seasons, keeps a gallery of fabrics and unique objects. Maison Titus, “it’s a family apartment transformed into a boutique living space combining concept store, gallery, workshops and events platform,” she summarizes. Titus is the name she gave her grandmother. Sherine Geagea comes from a line of sensitive and creative women, representing the fifth generation, and in this place she cultivates the inspiring presence of the souls that shaped her.

Art is above everything and at Maison Titus everything is created. This 600m2 space on Sursock Street in Achrafieh suffered badly from the August 4th 2020 double blast. The collection of beautiful Pierre Frey fabrics has been torn up. Separately, designer Ahmad Amer was commissioned to transform them into a moving and meaningful clothing collection. As I’m sure you understood, the gallery is doubled by a publisher that commissions its work from Lebanese artists and craftspeople. Unique or limited edition decorative items, furniture, crockery, bedding, perfumes and fragrances, jewelry and accessories, everything you will find here is rarely found elsewhere. “In this living space, with its fluid and open architecture, each space is an invitation to take the time to discover a universe and bring back unique objects, collections and brands from here and elsewhere,” emphasizes Sherine Geagea, who even works under the Maison Titus label, with DJs in charge of developing playlists available for free on SoundCloud, where the pieces are linked together in an organic way to create soothing atmospheres, moving the walls, expanding the space and imaginary Adding rhythm to travel.

Over time, adapting to the crises and impossible situations that a severe economic reality imposes on its market, Maison Titus has become increasingly involved in the presentation and representation of Lebanese know-how in partnership with local artisans. It is therefore quite natural that a collaboration was entered into with the NGO Sawa, which is committed to sustainable development, through its artistic masterpiece program, which offers the women of Bar Elias in the Bekaa a sustainable source of income through their craftsmanship. Nineteen women from this community have combined their talents as seamstresses over the last few weeks to create fresh flower woman themed summer dresses under the artistic direction of Maison Titus. These festive dresses, easy to wear at home or to the beach during the warm season, are decorated with huge patchwork flowers. Contemporary, timeless like everything released by the gallery, which cultivates the art of living in all its details, these dresses are at the crossroads of Scandinavian inspiration and typically Lebanese folklore. A little Marimekko, a little gleaner at the Grenier de Rome, her style is undefinable and decidedly unique. Inspired by this happy result, in the same spirit, Maison Titus continues a collaboration with Liza Feghali, an artist from Rachana, around a new collection of clothes just as easy to live with, in bright colors on a different floral theme.
