What: Poltrona Frau Miami, 3800 NE Miami Court, Miami Design District, FL. 33137
Why: Being a fashionista isn’t just about wearing stylish clothing, it’s also about creating a stylish environment. I just adore being at home surrounded by all the beautiful things that I cherish.
When it comes to fashion forward furniture, Poltrona Frau Miami is one of the best in the business. It’s all about Italian luxury, class and uniqueness. Whether it’s a Pucci-inspired chair, a Louis Vuitton-like supple leather couch or a decadent vase with jewelry to match, this place has got it all.
When I first walked into the uber-chic space, I was hypnotized by its elegance, but more importantly, it reminded me of a lesson I learned long ago when I first started furnishing my home. My mother used to always say: “Never buy your furniture all at once. Instead, buy each piece separately and look for things that are special, unique and personality-driven.” That’s what I love about Poltrona Frau Miami; it allows you to do just that.
The Peacock green armchair I’m sitting in (pictured in the blog,) is constructed out of crumpled sheets of felt. Its curves are fanciful, feminine and fetching. It’s perfect for a glamorous powder room or to add pizzaz to a regal sitting area. The grey Wanders’ Tulip armchair (pictured in the blog) is fabulously feisty and would spice up the corner of a spacious bedroom or add dimension to a small, urban-style living room (both chairs are by Cappellini.)
Where: The expansive store is easy to access right off 38th Street (one of the main roads) in the Miami Design District. There’s plenty of room to park, too. Just make sure you give yourself ample time when shopping, because the big, airy, sleek two-story loft layout is chock-full of fabulous furniture finds.
When: Monday-Friday 10:00am – 6:00pm, Saturday 11:00am – 5:00pm
