Parlor Interiors’ Virtual Finds at Design Miami


One of the art and design world’s most anticipated events has descended upon Miami in a much more paired down presentation with a shoppable, virtual component. The 2020 Design Miami/Podium fair, now located in the iconic Moore Building, is filled with rare pieces celebrating this year’s theme—”America, America(s): Rethinking “American” Design.” With offices in Miami, we asked Taylor Anne Abess founder of the bicoastal design firm Parlor Interiors, to share her top selections from the annual show.

“I came across this extraordinary Vikram Goyal malachite console from India presented by Todd Merrill Studio. The design nods to Brutalist forms of the 60s and 70s while introducing Art Deco elements and touches of Nouveau. It’s definitely a special piece but with more calming elements surrounding, it’s a winner.”

“Rogan Gregory’s “Fertility Form” lighting sculpture in gypsum, designed in 2019, is one of the showstoppers in the An Affair To Remember section at the fair this year.”

-“Good old fashioned heritage is prevalent at Design Miami this year, with rare pieces like one of the last remaining Hessian Hills Child’s Chairs by Wharton Esherick. The inaugural set of children’s chairs were made in 1925 as tuition payment for this daughter’s school in Croton, New York. “

“Thomas Barger’s Gingham Passion table and chair set made of paper pulp, wooden frame, polyurethane and paint, adds a nice touch of humor to the otherwise serious state of affairs.”
