Design Passion

Love your home? Then make sure it has the furnishings and quality of design that your daily sanctuary deserves day in and day out.
Column by Gabriela Acosta Tabares | June 18, 2018 | Design & Real Estate

I truly believe that you should always be proud of the place you call home. It’s your sanctuary and a part of who you are. Nine years ago I walked into Scan Design with that goal in mind — to help people be proud of their residence. I can honestly say that I now accomplish this goal on a daily basis. I’ve always had a passion for design and a love for furniture. I consider myself to be one of the lucky few that truly enjoy what I do. Scan Design began by following a dream to bring the best in contemporary furniture to Florida and we make that a reality every day. We pride ourselves in every piece we choose and carry the most exclusive lines in the state. An example is Gamma International. They, too, are known for their undeniable sophistication and true attention to detail. A Gamma piece is crafted with the utmost precision and hand-selected Italian leathers. Gamma shares the same values as Scan Design: A dedication to our clients through unparalleled quality and exceptional service.
