South Beach Design Dance

in From the Mobile App, Shopping

When the South Beach “rebirth” transformed spacious old factories and warehouses into lots of living and office space, stylish design and decorating shops quickly popped up.

Start off at luxurious Ligne Roset (162 King Street). Although founded in 1860, there’s nothing remotely old-fashioned about this French company’s ultra-modern furniture. Also for sale here: fine arts, accessories ranging from silverware to rugs, and lighting. Ligne Roset offers its clients free design services.

Now head northwest one block to Ruby Living Design (180 Townsend), where you’ll find comfortable and stylish contemporary furniture. Among the collections: Environment, MGBW, and Made to Measure; rugs, lighting and accessories are also sold, and free in-home design services available to customers by appointment.

Just down the block is one of Denmark’s most widely-known home design stores, BoConcept, where furniture is sleek, sophisticated, and affordable. The South Beach store (101 Townsend) can take care of furniture needs in any room, and offers an extensive selection of wall systems, lighting, and accessories ranging from duvets & pillows to mirrors.

Right next door is the final stop in your designer dance: Hong Kong-based K&D Home Furnishings (700 2nd Street at Townsend). K&D focuses on stylishly contemporary and environmentally-friendly furniture formed largely from recycled material. K&D has a rep for quality, good customer service, and affordability. Design services available to customers.
