Once on the forefront of the Art Deco movement, for decades Miami was considered the hot spot for vacation or retirement. The monotonous edifices had small windows and narrow balconies, and the design came off as lackluster.

Then, in 2002, Art Basel put the city into the global art and design limelight. It brought the most renowned designers to this coastal city. This huge association of design and art helped bring sophistication and class to Miami Beach.
Now, the second annual Maison&Objet Americas solidifies Miami as the city of design in the United States. This decorative arts trade fair returns to Miami Beach this month making it yet again, a destination for design aficionados.

Since the spawn of Art Basel more and more galleries have opened up in Miami and new condo towers started popping up all over the place. Homegrown artists have plenty of outlets to share their work with locals and tourists down Lincoln Road!

The Wynwood Walls took street art to the next level, by dedicating a space to this special art style. The Design District furthered Miami’s luxury level with some of the most fabulous shopping you can find in Florida! These booming neighborhoods brought all of the fashionistas and other urbanites to settle in Miami.

More and more private collectors are building showcases and sharing more wonderful art everyday. We are happy to call this glorious design filled city home! Miami is truly the place to come to find design inspiration.

Maison&Objet Americas has announced its picks for this year’s Rising Talents. The six up-and-coming designers representing North and South America were chosen by a committee based on their work as designers as well as their commitment to helping usher the design community into the future.

On April 5, two of the six Rising Talents, which include Samuel Amoia, a designer from the United States who uses natural materials in his work, and Javier Gomez, an artist and photographer from Panama who’s based in New York City, attended an event at the Carpenters Workshop Gallery in NYC, along with Maison&Object Americas director Gastón Isoldi, announcing their designation. The six designers will be showcasing some of their work at next month’s fair and there also will be an award ceremony held in their honor.

One of Maison&Objet’s goals is to promote design and give the Rising Talents a platform to expose their work to buyers and the international media. Isoldi stated that Javier Gomez has been selected because of the unique way he applies his photography of buildings to design and Samuel Amoia’s great talent to create furniture using innovative techniques.

This is the second year that the 20-year-old fair will be held in the United States. The next fair in Paris will be held September 2-6.

The new collection’s 20 new piece include vases, perfume bottles, bowls, decanters, and paperweights. The products have the contoured and geometric lines of the original vase as well as the Deco spirit of Miami.

Petersen Automotive Museum
This museum originally opened in 1962 as Seibu, a Japanese store. Today the only Japanese things you’ll find in here are some of the cars, including 2001 Honda S2000 driven in the movie 2 Fast 2 Furious. This museum recently underwent a huge renovation and is now bright red with 300-plus steel ribbon sections wrapping around the building. Inside you’ll find rotating displays organized by history, industry, and artistry. They have some beautiful cars in storage.


Ace Hotel
This boutique hotel brand really knows how to preserve old spaces when creating a lodging. The LA outpost is located in the Gothic-influenced, nearly century-old United Artists building. They’ve even restored a theater from the 1920s that looks like a Moroccan cave; its vaulted ceiling is covered in thousands of tiny mirrors that make it truly shine!


Walt Disney Concert Hall
While being almost acoustically perfect, the hall itself is an impressive sight to see. Architect Frank Gehr designed this Concert Hall. The warm fir-and-cedar auditorium contrasts with the concert hall’s gravity-defying metallic exterior. The 3.6-acre complex includes a community garden on the third level that you can visit for free.
