As one of the first to kick off the new era for the Design District uniting all upscale luxury brands, Ornare announces their new showroom, “Ornare Home” in the historically known Moore Building.

As the ongoing market leader and trendsetter, the new Ornare showroom will feature over 10 never-before-seen closets, kitchens and baths collections from the famed Brazilian ultra-luxury brand.

Ornare’s U.S. director, Claudio Faria, welcomed many of Miami’s most influential players with a series of VIP private lunches.

Faria has become a local influencer in design and makes shopping for closets, kitchens and baths a high-style, ultra-luxe experience. Exporting one of Brazil’s most famous brands, Faria introduced Ornare to Miami over five years ago and established it as a coveted custom design powerhouse for high-end South Florida homes.

A graduate of Brazil’s most esteemed center for higher education, University of Sao Paolo, Faria capitalized on his degree in international relations when he was introduced to the Ornare founders, Murillo and Esther Schattan. Quickly determining the brand’s value and potential, Faria brought Ornare into the States and became the U.S. director of Ornare and owner of the Miami outpost – currently the only operating location in the U.S. but soon to debut in New York City and Dallas.

Faria single-handedly took a brand that was relatively unknown in the States and transformed it into one of the most prestigious in Miami. Now undoubtedly one of the most recognized Brazilian companies in Miami, Ornare plays an active role in South Florida’s “Brazilian boom.”

Hosting multiple influential Art Basel events from the Tastemakers Showcase to the Architecture Talk, Ornare stands at the forefront of the design industry.

Hand picking the top talent in the design and architecture spheres to showcase their work at the Tastemakers Showcase, Ornare brought out 800 international architects, designers and artists as they celebrated the art of architecture and interior design.

Alongside Wallpaper* and Architizer, Ornare designed a panel top Brazilian, US and international architects along with top design industry leaders to discuss the impact of the Brazilian boom on architecture, design and international landscapes – from Brazil to Miami and across the globe.

Ornare showrooms in Brazil are located in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia, Salvador and Belo Horizonte.
