Called the original concept store of Middle Eastern wares, Orient 499 is an emporium stocked with oriental crafts, fashion and home design that have been scooped up at souks and markets by founders Frank Luca and Aida Kawas and styled with a modern eye in their sleek all-white shop. You’ll find ceramics and linens from Turkey, lanterns and kaftans from Morocco, mirrors and gowns from Lebanon and much more in areas themed around children, fashion, the bathroom, the bedroom and dining.
