I found this very interesting article about interior designers in the Middle East and how they are breaking through. One of the designers featured is Nada Debs, whose profile was boosted by Queen Rania:

"Her break came when Jordan's Queen Rania commissioned her to create the children's wings of the palaces in Amman. However, getting her furniture business off the ground in Lebanon proved tricky. Retailers told her that local consumers were not interested in local designers, so she was forced to open her own furniture showroom. 'Arab designers will have to make it outside the Arab world before they will be accepted here,' she says."
