With Miami Art Basel around the corner, we find ourselves reminiscing on last year’s experience. When we checked out all the art fairs in Miami last December, Design Miami was truly one of our favorites. There were so many beautiful and imaginative spaces. Unlike some spaces that feel cold and uninviting, everything here was presented in a warm setting. It was at once relaxing and inspiring to walk through the galleries.
Some of the highlights below!
The Cristina Grajales Gallery: Leopard Skies by Mark Grattan room was giving Scarface in the best way. There needs to be more mirrored and velvet rounded furniture in the world.
Where else will you find a Cindy Sherman jewelry collaboration? We’ve never seen this before, and think this is a prime venue to see artists trying new mediums.
We love when artists experiment outside of what the public expects of them, and this type of work should be getting more exposure, in our humble opinion. More of Cindy Sherman x Lizworks cameo designs can be seen here: https://carpentersworkshopgallery.com/artists/cindy-sherman-x-lizworks/
Breathtaking moss sculptures by sculptor Kim Simonsson. Although they were in the back corner, they were one of the highlights of the show.

Thought these chairs would have a soft texture like Gaetano Pesce’s other sculptures! Nonetheless, an excellent collaboration with Bottega Veneta.
Superhouse curator Stephen Markos never fails to dissappoint in his NYC space, and this conceptual bedroom designed by four artists was a hit.
We’re not mad at this Flinstones-inspired chair.
Futuristic shapes were abundant, like this new take on a simple coffee table.
This AGO Projects room was a refreshing and whimsical take on color and shape.

The Tuleste Factory: Through and Through room was a study on blue, proving once again that a monochromatic look never fails.Here, one of our favorite glass pieces.

A welcoming chair at Friedman Benda. Too bad we were not allowed to sit on it.
The disco ball thing has been overdone on social media in our opinion, but this was playful version was a fresh take. It was a hit at the show. Rotganzen’s Various works (2022) at Rademakers Gallery
A tasteful Elvis and Priscilla lamp set.
We are blown away by all of the innovative 3-d printed ideas out there, like this wall sculpture spotted at Design Miami. Can’t wait to see what else is in store in just two months!
If you’re moving solo, you’re in for a unique experience. Not only will you have to worry about all the logistics of moving your belongings, but you’ll also have to take care of everything yourself. This can be daunting, but it’s definitely doable with a bit of planning. This guide will walk you through everything you need to know about moving by yourself.
This is probably the most stressful part of moving solo. Not only do you have to find an affordable place, but it also has to be in a safe neighborhood and close to public transportation. You could choose an apartment, a house, or a condo.
If you’re looking for an apartment, you should keep a few things in mind. First, decide what kind of apartment you want. There are studio apartments, which are usually more expensive but have everything in one room. There are also one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments.
Being a part of an apartment community has its perks. For example, some buildings have doorkeepers or security guards, which can make you feel safer. There are also often laundry facilities and gyms on-site, which can be convenient.
However, apartments can also have their downsides. For example, you may have to deal with noisy neighbors or thin walls.
If you’re looking for a house, you’ll have to decide if you want to buy or rent. Buying a house is a huge investment, and it’s not something you should do lightly. If you’re renting, you’ll have to sign a lease, which is a legal contract that outlines the terms of your rental agreement.
Houses usually have more space than apartments, which can be nice if you want to entertain guests or have pets.
However, houses also come with more responsibility. You’ll be responsible for maintaining the property and paying for repairs.
Condos are a cross between apartments and houses. They’re usually individually owned but often located in buildings with many other units. This can give you some of the benefits of living in an apartment community, such as doormen or security guards.
Condos are a good option if you want to own your own place but you don’t want the hassle of maintaining a property.
Once you’ve found a place to live, it’s time to start packing.
If you’re moving by yourself, you’ll have to pack everything up on your own. Start by making a list of everything you need to pack. Then, start packing one room at a time. Be sure to label all of your boxes, so you know where everything is when you arrive at your new home. You can also use convenient storage units to make sure your most valuable possessions are safe while you figure out the logistics of your move.
Next, you’ll need to arrange transportation.
If you’re moving solo, you’ll have to figure out how to get all of your belongings to your new home. This can be tricky, especially if you’re moving a long distance. The best option is usually to hire a professional moving company. They’ll be able to transport all of your belongings safely and efficiently.
Finally, once you’ve arrived at your new home, it’s time to start unpacking.
Again, this is something you’ll have to do on your own. Start by unpacking the essentials first, such as clothes and toiletries. Then, move on to the rest of your boxes. Be sure to put everything away in a place where you can find it easily.
Moving solo can be a daunting task, but it’s definitely doable with a bit of planning. By following this guide, you’ll be able to successfully move to your new home without any help.
Business is all about satisfying customers and making plenty of money. In order to do this, you have to be at a great standard in the first place. You also have to make people look at you and your brand in a positive way. If you can build a rapport with people you’re looking to sell to, then you’re going to be in a great position going forward.
It’s just a case of making sure you can build the relationship at all. So many businesses with potential end up failing because they struggled with getting the right attention. They didn’t know what to say or what actions to take as the business was looking to get off the ground. Here are a few ways you can grab people’s attention in the most positive way:
Possess An Amazing Online Presence
You have to make sure that, firstly, you’re online in the first place. Secondly, you have to ensure that your online accounts and websites are showing you off in a very glowing light. If you aren’t doing this, then people will likely be turned off right away. Be professional as well as friendly and relatable. People want to see maturity but not in a robotic, boring sense.
Work In A Great Workplace Situation In The Right Location
Your place of work matters a lot because people will take a mental note of the actual premises. Whether you’re working on a shop floor or in a factory, you have to make sure it’s looking good. It’s not the be-all and end-all, but it’s a huge step. Getting in good cleaners and dealing with property maintenance will help out a lot because a workplace that has been left to suffer often begins to show after so long.
Work With A Team That Can Active Help Expand Your Reach
There are companies out there that specialize in making your business a lot more popular than it is right now. They’ll go through a collection of different campaigns and strategies in order to get what they need. The likes of Junto’s Facebook ads consulting for digital marketing, for example, could be a godsend if you want to reach more people online.
Create Events That People Will Be Interested In
People like attending certain gatherings that are of interest to them. Whether they’re formal dealings or informal parties, they stimulate the brain in many ways. If you can create an event or sponsor one, then people are going to associate you with the positive time they had. Event marketing is a very popular way of getting people on board.
Work Hard For Customers And Clients Every Single Day
If you work hard on what you’re doing, people will notice it. We always appreciate when somebody is putting in a big shift for us because we know what it’s like. We know that it’s difficult to maintain a good work ethic and it’s nice to see it on show – especially when it’s in our favor. The more you work at something, the more people will appreciate it and talk about it. Word-of-mouth marketing is the cheapest way of getting people to know about you. People will talk to their friends and family, so make sure they’re saying positive things and giving good reviews/recommendations.
