Avant Design vignette inside the Roche Bobois showroom.
Often joining forces with high-profile artists and craftspeople, Roche Bobois most recently tapped Brazilian sisters Cristina and Monica Souza to develop a vignette within its Coral Gables showroom. Founders of the interiors firm Avant Design, the sisters are known for bringing together people, life, and art in ways that seamlessly attune to Miami’s Latin vibe. “The vision for the collaboration was to deliver a space that reflects Roche Bobois’s French art de vivre and Avant Design’s approach to architecture and interior design,” the duo says. “Having been exposed to the full Roche Bobois collection, we realized the creative potential they offer, and our team was left spellbound by their know-how, and their commitment to realize what we could dream up.” 450 Biltmore Way, Miami, 305-444-1017; roche-bobois.com
