MOTHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE FOR DESIGN LOVERS
With quarantine still in place for many of us, we’re looking for new ways to celebrate Mom. Some of our team members are purchasing gift cards from businesses located near their moms, and that got us thinking about some of the local Wynwood/Miami businesses that we use on a regular basis. So, we’ve compiled some ideas for your design-loving mom and included a few items that are available from Miami businesses, like DBAKERS and Clima Home. Happy shopping and Happy Mother’s Day!
Architectural Pottery Collection from VesseL® USA Inc.
Our friends at CLIMA HOME have some fabulous indoor/outdoor furniture and accessories that will have your mom celebrating spring and summer. We love the fun geometric shapes of these handcrafted ceramic planters. Please click here to learn more.
Think candles are a tired tradition? Think again. As we all find ourselves getting cozy at home during quarantine, there’s just something soothing and reassuring about candlelight. We love Aquiesse for several reasons. The packaging is simple and elegant, the candles have a long burn-time, and they are presented in thick glass with a heat-resistant cover that doubles as a pedestal. Great design.

Treat Mom to something sweet. Located in Midtown, this Miami bakery creates absolutely stunning cakes and confections. When we hit an Insta milestone, we called on the artisans at DBAKERS to make our celebration cake. If you’re lucky enough to live in Miami, DBAKERS has pickup options. Macaroons ship nationwide.

DAVID YURMAN CABLE CLASSICS BRACELET
The simplicity and elegant design of David Yurman’s jewelry caught our team’s attention. Available from Nordstrom, his sterling silver Cable Classics bracelet features Pavé diamonds.
JIE ART & DESIGN
Miami artist, Jessica Isabel Illacuci, was born and raised in Venezuela. She earned a bachelor’s degree in interior architecture and then opened her own art business in 2017. Illacuci’s art works and home décor caught our team’s attention in 2018 and we featured her in the Spotlight series on our blog. The artist is inspired by “shapes, forms and their interaction among themselves and the space that they occupy.”
And just in case you’re wondering…we don’t accept any kind of payment for the products we highlight or feature on our blog. No paid advertising, no pay-per-click. Just our design team’s honest sharing of what we love.
