Then in 2012, his passion for mid-century design icons, led Georges Amatoury to create his signature line; Georges Amatoury Studio, with one objective in mind: creating timeless furniture design that will travel through time with elegance.

Philosophy:

Inspired by the aesthetics and designs of the mid-century and modernist icons, Georges Amatoury created a signature studio line that summarizes more than ten years of collecting, learning, crafting and designing. With a vision inspired from organic and geometric forms, the designs abide to aesthetic and finishing standards pertaining to art and jewelry. Playing with duality of an infinite combination merging the solid to the void, the folded to the unfolded, the intertwined to the unraveled, the movement to stability, to new treatments, textures, forms and finishes, the pieces enlighten the room in which they are introduced. These creations harmoniously combine traditional designs with contemporary strokes to create timeless furniture pieces that evoke memorable emotions, and can match with classical or contemporary interiors.GAS booth

Georges Amatoury Studio’s furniture are characterized by a perfect finishing through all the production phases. The great precision and meticulous attention to detail with which the pieces are made, are also clearly tangible. Hybridity, elegance and purity associated with perfect proportions and finish, characterize these pieces of furniture that combines, in a sensual and incisive way, noble materials like ebony, lacquer with refined polished, oxidized and Gunmetal metals, treated marble and stone.

Georges Amatoury Studio design pieces, whether unique or in limited edition, are all signed, numbered, dated and titled. In addition, a certificate of authenticity is delivered with each piece of furniture.

Absolute master craftsmanship meets contemporary techniques to produce Georges Amatoury Studio furniture that are proudly designed and produced in Lebanon and exported all around the world. To meet the taste of the most demanding clientele or interior designer, Georges Amatoury ‘s creations are semi “made to measure”, some pieces are even developed out of their standards, whether in dimension or finishing. Beirut: Georges Amatoury Studio are displayed at Ardeco Gallery, since March 2014, between a thoughtful selection of Mid-century decorative items, in Beirut, Ashrafieh district, Trabaud street. Paris: Since January 2015, you can find Georges Amatoury Studio creations, in Jules et Jim showroom in Therese street, close to Faubourd St Honore Street, in the 1 st district of Paris. Dubai: Since April 2015, Georges Amatoury Studio furniture are displayed in Cities at Galleria Mall ,in Jumeirah.
