Smart Design
During a recent Q&A session with Ligne Roset Miami owner Lori Bruno, she answers some questions she’s encountered when it comes to home design.

Q: I just bought a new condo but I do not have the time to shop around for home furnishings. What do you suggest for me?
A: “We have new complete “Home Furnishings Packages” — which include pre-selected furniture, lighting & accessories. This will allow you to sit back and relax while we completely furnish your new condo.”
Q: I live in South America but I love your designs. Can I order online or on the phone?
A: “Yes, you can call or email our showroom to place your order. Our design consultants can even mail you fabric and finish samples. Many of our clients live in South America and we work very closely with many freight forwarders here in Miami.”
Q: Ligne Roset’s style is just what I’ve been looking for but I don’t have the design eye to put a room together. Do you have someone who can help me?
A: “We do! We offer complimentary in-home design services. Our experienced Design Consultants will come to your home to measure, access your project and put together floor plans and drawings. They will also work with you to select your furniture pieces and your choices of fabrics, finishes and sizes from our vast collection.”
Q: I live in New York and have a vacation home in Miami. Can I order my furniture for my Miami home from the New York store?
A: “Definitely. We have stores in NYC, Philly & Miami. You can work with any of our design consultants from our stores to help you with your Miami home. Your order can easily be shipped to Miami in as fast as 2 weeks.”
