Design Miami is a global forum for 20th and 21st century collectible design. Gallerists, designers, curators and critics the world over, come together to celebrate museum-quality furniture, lighting and objects of art. Running alongside Art Basel, this year’s show had an injection of contemporary as well as historic mid-century pieces. Below are a few pieces that caught my eye…
