New York, London, Paris…the Miami Design
District. The latter is the place to decorate your
home and yourself. The past year saw Minotti
Miami, Lladro, Fendi, Versace, Ermenegildo
Zegna, Valentino, Max Mara, Givenchy and
others join the existing luxe retailers. Minotti
Miami recently opened a 10,000-sq.-ft.
showroom of hand-crafted Italian furniture.
Another newcomer, Lladro, showcases their
diverse creations, including the brand’s latest
venture into the lighting world. In addition,
many more top designers are set to open stores
in 2016 and beyond; MiamiDesignDistrict.net.
Over the past 25 years, Ellen DeGeneres has purchased and renovated nearly a dozen
homes. “I think I wanted to be an interior designer when I was 13,” she says, “Moving
houses is just another way in which I get to experience life.” In her new book, Home,
the popular television host and Emmy-winning actress who produces Ellen’s Design
Challenge gives us a peek into her private life and ends each chapter with “what the
house taught me” — something everyone can relate to; Amazon.com.

Architecture and design trends have shifted
significantly in the past few years, and we
can’t deny that such change has been propelled
by the booming of the Miami real estate
industry, which has translated into dozens of
new residential condominiums populating the
city’s skyline. The home furniture and design
industries can’t ignore the need for solutions
that accommodate the condo-living lifestyle,
where spaces are limited, and layouts are
sometimes challenging. As an interior and
furniture designer, I became aware of the
importance to design a product that would
accommodate such needs. The new generation
of condominiums flourishing in Brickell,
Downtown, Edgewater and even Doral, are
bringing with them a discerning end-user;
a new home owner or renter who wants to
move into an apartment that matches his or
her lifestyle, and that includes the furniture.
With this in mind, we created the H Line, a
furniture line designed for urban living, with
over 10 pieces, many of them created as an
updated version of our classic AH Collection.
Slightly smaller dimensions match the size
requirements of modern condominiums without
compromising a sophisticated style. Rich colors
and textures contrast with clean lines, making
it easy to accessorize.
