CHERINE MAGRABI TAYEB

How House of Today is putting Lebanon’s design sense on the map.

Cherine Magrabi Tayeb is an astute businesswoman and a steadfast supporter of Lebanese designers. She launched House of Today, a non-profit design platform in 2012, to nurture Lebanese talent through a number of programs and scholarships. During House of Today’s recent exhibition in Beirut, HOME spoke with the charming influencer to understand more about her inspiring and artistic undertaking.

Before we delve into your work, we want to highlight your very eclectic background—born to an Egyptian-Saudi father and a Lebanese mother and having lived in Saudi Arabia, Switzerland and the United Kingdom, and then settling in Lebanon which has become your permanent HOME. Which country or culture do you most identify with? Perhaps a piece of me belongs to all these places.

Your father is the pioneer ophthalmologist Dr. Akef Magrabi who founded Magrabi Optical.
