Laure de Mazieres in Miami


Laure de Mazieres is one of those furniture showrooms that you feel like you could move right into.


With perfectly styled roomsets within the Miami showroom comprised of the gorgeous furniture from lines such as Ralph Lauren and Roberto Cavalli, it’s not hard to get inspired after visiting.


From swanky urban to beachy traditional there is a great cross-section of styles to suit Miami’s equally varied clientele.


Here are some of my favourite pieces:


This upholstered klismos-esque side chair has such fabulous curves and a great colour-block look.


This chair plays with exaggerated proportions and materiality – I love how the lacquered frame and brass nailheads interplay with the matte fabric.


These hurricane candleholders are clean and classic looking- could be a perfect addition to our balcony…


This four-poster bed with its nickel posts and silk tufting is DRAMA! It sure turns that old wood version you’ve seen on its head!


This chandelier simultaneously reminds me of bubbles and pearls! I love the classic shape reinterpreted in a more playful material


These cutie-pie black leather footstools with shiny chrome legs are adorable and would look right at home in front of a fireplace


This Ralph Lauren bar cart is perfection – love the metal tubing and wood lower shelf. It would look amazing in a bachelor pad!


These gold scorpions (not lobsters as I originally misidentified) are wonderfully odd and would look just right on top of a stack of coffee table books


Every inch of the back, arms and seat of this creamy leather sofa is tufted-- tailoured opulence at its best!


This short and stout lamp screams deco and I love the over-scaled shade and clever switching on the base

ugh, I love tufting too, but sometimes I find that you need throw pillows to make it feel comfortable, leaving minimal space to sit. I often find myself sliding off a tufted couch due to minimal seating room because of all the throw pillows. It makes it ok when my cat, Marshak, sniffs my ears...

I think those are gold scorpions, not lobsters - you can tell by the tail. But they are still great! Especially if you are a scopio!
