five Miami-based designers share what their style sweet tooth is craving this season.
WADE HALLOCK, WADE ALLYN HALLOCK INTERIORS (305.756.3773, hallockdesigngroup.com) Coveted piece: An etched bronze coffee table by George Mathias has my attention. Why I love it: This 1970s Belgian piece inherits its personality through a traditional shape with intense modern details. The streamlined, sculpted whole is strong yet organic. Its sharp edges and sleek lines give it a masculine feel, and the etched pattern and agate inset make it unique. Where to put it: This casual-yet-elegant piece works on many levels. It would be perfect for a living room or a space that needs a strong focal point. It can be the anchor of any space with its uniqueness and sturdy, comfortable feel. Where to get it: You can find the table on 1st Dibs and at various dealers who carry high-end, mid-century designs. (1stdibs.com)
