Janus et Cie in Miami


One showroom that was a must to visit during my quick and dirty jaunt to the Miami Design District was Janus et Cie.


Beautiful outdoor furniture that is impeccable crafted and detailed isn’t easy to find, so when a high end project comes along that requires al fresco decor, one of my first stops is Janus et Cie.


My favourite collection is the Azimuth, which is so crisp and classy in the white vermouth finish. It is clean lined but still has enough character to blend in with more traditional decor as well.


The Forest side chair is quite the stunner in this coral red hue. These would make an unbelievable foil for a white lacquer dining table in a mod home…


The infamous faux-bois collections is so ethereal and unique – like a fairytale in your own backyard!


I was totally impressed with the showroom’s collection of accessories, which were all so fun and different! 


The Grecian pitcher and tray are so graphic and would lend a cultural kind of feeling to a vignette.


These silver barnacle sculptures would look divine in an outdoor tablescape by the sea.


These porcelain mini flowerpots are great to look at, but also fun to feel, thanks to their mix of the polished finish on the rim and matte on the base.

And here are some parting shots of the balcony of my family’s vacation pad in Miami where we recently had our own Azimuth suite delivered. We chose a pale aqua fabric for the cushions to match the building’s exterior glass. I can’t tell you how comfortable and gorgeous the pieces are! Next stop are some accessories to complete the new look!

Nice post! I love Janus et Cie--in South Florida, there is no end of unattractive outdoor furniture offending the eye. Janus et Cie has definitely helped reverse that trend. P.s. I love "Everlasting Light" : )
