Fusion, mix it up!

Fusion: a distinct entity formed by combining 2 or more different things. To Blend. I love the word fusion for several reasons. I love to mix it up. Mixing it up with people. There is  Food fusion, Mexican-sushi, what could be better? Fashion fusion, a vintage dress and African beads and platform shoes. Of course, there is more to it than throwing it on. But, when done correctly.... Stunning! Then there is design fusion. It is personal and it creates an individual  style.  It is about balance and merging different cultures and principles.  Design fusion like nature is imperfect but authentic.  Blending the influences of disparate cultures and times, creates a new design aesthetic.  The latest Ikat textiles can work with contemporary interiors.  The modern acrylic  "Ghost Chair" next to an organic rough hewn wood dining table is spectacular design.

Fusing materials, and styles is fresh and brings energy to design.

 Keep your eyes open and you will see fusion everywhere.

Put the FUN back in Function

I read somewhere, that every room should have that "special" chair. It adds personality, zip and FUN. Sculptural yet functional. Furniture as art has been growing like crazy for years..   Design Miami went from a small venue to a giant in a very short time.  Consumers are more picky about their purchases. cookie-cutter and mass produced items loose their worth and the attention.

As a furniture designer,  helping clients accentuate their personal style while creating a piece that stands alone as art, and also finds balance in the decor, is truly gratifying. And because of my love of the chair,  I am creating a line of "Accessory Seats".

Investing in one piece that tickles you, every time you walk in a room is priceless. So get out their and find you Fun.

Santa's Workshop


Santa's Workshop???

This organized mess is what happens in the middle of production.  Projects with different deadlines, waiting their turn.  Last week was wild, the dust was flying, all the stars were aligned and several pieces were installed for the holidays, with a sigh of relief !

I wish you all a very beautiful and Happy Holiday Season with all the stars aligned.

till next week, Andrea
