Success Story

Q&A with Claudio Faria of Miami

Initial Inspiration for Design

Growing up in Sao Paolo, Brazil, I was nurtured in an environment that held a deep respect for design, instilling in me a lifelong passion for interiors.

Describing My Aesthetic

Ornare provides the perfect platform for me to blend classic and contemporary elements in a harmonious way, which is central to my design philosophy.

Current Design Trend I Adore

I’m currently enamored with paneled walls. They offer a multitude of design possibilities while adding depth and aesthetic consistency to any space.

Design Trend I’d Like to See Retire

The overuse of gloss finishes is a trend I find overbearing. I prefer a balanced approach that combines sleek styles with natural elements.

Wallpaper or Paint?

Definitely panels!

Preference: Antique or Reproduction?

I lean towards contemporary design.

Timeless Design Elements

Brazilian modernist furniture and architecture are evergreen elements in design that I believe will stand the test of time.

Maximizing Impact on a Budget

For impactful results that offer great value, focus on custom cabinetry that enhances the overall home, not just a single room.

Client Understanding: More Than Just Products

I wish clients would appreciate the comprehensive nature of the design process. It’s not merely about selecting items from a collection; it’s about curating an experience tailored to your lifestyle and personal needs.
