Faena House, Miami Beach, Florida, USA
This beach front 'party pad' within the Foster & Partners designed Faena House was designed for New York based developer Bryan Graybill and his husband Daniel Dokos. Harris & Harris were commissioned to create a spectacular entertaining space for the couple's friends and family, as well as providing a retreat of escapism for the couple.
The concept was influenced by the glamorous interiors of the 1970s, the project became an exercise in creating a fun and casual space which is also carefully refined and understated.
With a cleverly designed layout by the architect, the emphasis was on the design of bespoke furniture, lighting, wall finishes and window treatments that would sit alongside vintage pieces and artwork from Graybill & Dokos's collection. Key bespoke designs include a multi-functional daybed & dining banquette with rotating circular bar, a resplendent Ubald Klug inspired master bed, a copper & hand-applied plaster chandelier as well as pieces from the Harris & Harris collection upholstered in Hermes, Dedar and Holly Hunt fabrics.
