10 photos of design miami's 10th year
design Miami is my favorite show because I walk around and play a game I like to call "What Three Things Would You Take Home." Price is not in the picture (if you've never noticed, you probably won't be surprised to hear they don't price almost any of the art at the fairs - even though everything is for sale) and it doesn't matter if the chandelier is too big to actually fit in your living room.
You can play this game at any of the art fairs, but Design Miami really does it for me. It's a pleasant reminder of what the very nicest, highest end, furniture in the world looks like - a pleasant reminder of just how nice things can be, especially because I'm a chronic browser of the Target home section and West Elm.
I make up all the rules for "What Three Things Would You Take Home" and in the Design Miami iteration you can't pick any of the jewelry because it would be impossible to pick. This year, there was a smaller selection than usual (notably, the Dali silverware and Delfina Delettrez) but there was Calder. And Calder is always a good thing. I'll take it all.
