Les Arcades History is a unique and rich once. Coming back from a long stay in England, Mr. Bassil Trad decided to establish in 1920 the first Art the la Table store in Downtown Beirut. The country was living its Golden Period after the break of the Ottoman Empire and acclaimed the introduction of the English High Tea ceremony in the country with great enthusiasm.
‘Les Arcades’ has established itself as the reference for exclusive silverware and luxury tableware with Saint Louis, Mappin & Webb, Barker Ellis, Wedgwood, Herend, Moser, and Royal Copenhagen.
His son, Nagib Trad, fond of Arts and Architecture, a man of taste with a strong passion for beauty, gave a new breath to ‘Les Arcades’ by introducing colors and modernity to the Boutique. He opened a new store on Abdel Wahab El Englizi Street in 1977 and introduced new fashionable brands. Able to attract the youth looking for elegance and refinement, he installed the 100% Cash Back formula for Wedding Lists and became indispensable for all the newlyweds of the country.
Rare, Exclusive, and Limited Edition Objects are part of the Identity of the Boutique and ‘Les Arcades’ remains the meeting point between the art of table decoration, luxury household goods, and design.
Wether you are looking to embellish your table or home atmosphere, ‘Les Arcades’ is the only place where so many international brands are reunited to offer a wide range of crystal and fine porcelain choice – and where the mix and match with historical silverware pieces, colorful glassware, and table accessories is possible.
