This time last week, Design Miami, the annual fair celebrating the hottest pieces of furniture, decor, and objets d’art, was in full swing. There were items of interest as far as the eye could see: a Balenciaga printer! Fendi fountains! A couch made out of pink stuffed animals that cruelly, you couldn’t sit on! (Trust me, I tried.) Now that the dust has settled, what emerged out of this beautiful, bizzare blur? That’s the question that my colleague Lilah Ramzi and I have been asking these past couple of days. What iPhone photos are we still pulling up? What are the things we still can’t stop thinking about?
Cap Martin Curved Sofa by India Mahdavi, for Ralph Pucci
Although not in the Design Miami program, another thing that caught Lilah’s eye was a set of pieces by the designer-of-the-moment. “Outside the tents of Design Miami, furniture and mannequins maker Ralph Pucci held their own India Mahdavi installation, which showcased the Cap Martin curved sofa—a variation of her famous rattan chair. Mahdavi proved once again that everything she lays her hands on is design gold.”
