MIX MASTERS

Of­ten join­ing forces with high-pro­file artists and crafts­peo­ple, Roche Bobois most re­cently tapped Brazil­ian sis­ters Cristina and Mon­ica Souza to de­velop a vi­gnette within its Co­ral Gables show­room. Founders of the in­te­ri­ors firm Avant De­sign, the sis­ters are known for bring­ing to­gether peo­ple, life, and art in ways that seam­lessly at­tune to Mi­ami’s Latin vibe. “The vi­sion for the col­lab­o­ra­tion was to de­liver a space that re­flects Roche Bobois’s French art de vivre and Avant De­sign’s ap­proach to ar­chi­tec­ture and in­te­rior de­sign,” the duo says. “Hav­ing been ex­posed to the full Roche Bobois col­lec­tion, we re­al­ized the cre­ative po­ten­tial they of­fer, and our team was left spell­bound by their know-how, and their com­mit­ment to re­al­ize what we could dream up.” 450 Bilt­more Way, Mi­ami, 305-4441017; roche-bobois.com

TO­TALLY FLOORED

Best known for its fine mar­ble, onyx, lime­stone, and semi­precious stone slabs, Opu­s­tone spe­cial­izes in ex­quis­ite porce­lain sur­faces, too. Among its most ex­tra­or­di­nary of­fer­ings are three new col­lec­tions by Italian man­u­fac­turer Mutina, in­clud­ing printed Azulej ce­ment tiles, in­dus­trial chro­matic Mews tiles by Lon­don’s Bar­ber & Os­gerby, and tex­tu­ral, na­ture-de­rived Phe­nom­e­non tiles by Toku­jin Yosh­ioka—all avail­able through any of Opu­s­tone’s four Florida show­rooms, in­clud­ing its newly opened lo­ca­tion in West Palm Beach. 3200 NW 77th Ct., Mi­ami, 305594-4200; opu­s­tone.com

MI CASA

Since launch­ing in the De­sign District’s Lux­ury Liv­ing show­room more than 12 years ago, Fendi Casa has aimed to dress rooms with the same panache its cloth­ing ex­udes. With the open­ing of Lux­ury Liv­ing’s largest ded­i­cated 32,000-square­foot show­room—de­signed by ar­chi­tect Michael Maltzan—in the De­sign District in May, the fur­ni­ture distrib­u­tor will ex­pand the in­flu­ence of Fendi Casa, as well as other cel­e­brated brands like Bent­ley Home, Bu­gatti Home, Trus­sardi Casa, the Paul Mathieu Sig­na­ture Col­lec­tion, and Ritz Paris Home. 50 NE 39th St., Mi­ami, 305-438-1660; lux­u­ryliv­ing­group.com
