When eight ambitious designers get their hands on five brands of lavish furnishings, they’re liable to put on a show, or, more accurately, a show house.
Design Force Miami–not a squad of stylish superheroes, but a local collective consisting of Brett Sugerman and his wife, Giselle Loor Sugerman, Miguel Lewis, Odalys Hernandez, Janet Patterson, Joe Fava, Jay Britto and David Charette–has collaborated with Luxury Living Group on The Residence in Miami’s Design District. Luxury Living Group, the company that created furnishing collections with Fendi, Trussardi, Bentley and Baccarat, to name a few, provided their wares and the 7,700-square-foot space. Design Force Miami brought the ideas, crafting lively interiors for an imaginary South American client.
Amid the turquoise and cobalt velvet sofas, lacquered case goods and gleaming metallic accents are also eye-catching contributions from district neighbors: wallcoverings by Orlean, floral displays by Emilio Robba and fine art from Opera Gallery. The house is open through December 2019.
