Studio Trip to South Florida Design Park

Design field trip time! We recently took a studio trip south for the day to visit a few favorite luxury furniture and fabric showrooms and view the latest introductions. The South Florida Design Park has emerged as a prime interior designer’s shopping destination, located minutes from DCOTA. While there we spent some time visiting Jerry Pair to browse the gorgeous lines of furniture, fabrics, wall covering, and lighting represented there and available to the interior design trade. Today we are sharing a peek at a few of our favorite finds we’ll be offering to our clients.


ANGELA: Being surrounded by beautiful textiles is one of my favorite ways to begin a new project.

ANGELA: Remember the tribal-inspired fabrics Sonika posted about by Pierre Frey? Here is one of our favorites in person. The embroidery brings such beautiful texture (Left). This crisp canvas by Hermès creates an abstract pattern of ship sails and would be great as drapes in a breezy, nautical guest room or office, or as casual pillows on a rich leather sofa (Right).

SONIKA: This hand-carved armoire is a show stopper at 8 feet tall! Its deep carvings, bold pattern and neutral wood finish make a great balance of sophistication while also looking exotic.


ANGELA: Hermès fabrics were a highlight of my day. The prints were both sophisticated and a little whimsical.


SONIKA: I couldn’t help but notice the beautiful detailing on the back of this upholstered dining chair. The leather fabric meets with a crisp and tailored pleat on center and is held together by two simple “x” stitches.

ANGELA: Porta Romana lighting fixtures are like the perfect piece of jewelry. The combination of texture and sheen in this pendant cluster (left) is masterful, and these sculptural sconces (right) actually design entire rooms around themselves in my mind.

ANGELA: An antique fabric remnant and this sturdy ottoman from Formations are the perfect pair. A truly one-of-a-kind, character piece.

SONIKA: How adorable is this fabric?! The geometric-shaped animals in a soft neutral color palette is accented just enough with pops of bright stitching. The crinkle of the linen gives it a relaxed yet high-end appearance. I’m definitely imagining it made up into drapery for a nursery to appreciate the full pattern.

What an inspiring visit we had! Looking forward to using these and other great finds in future projects. Stay tuned!

Happy Friday!
