Due to current travel restrictions, Salvagni oversaw the design for the Lakeview Drive property from his home in Rome – often working throughout the night to coincide with Miami’s time zone. Despite these challenges, he directed the entirety of the interior installation including placement of cabinetry, fabrics used and the dressing of furniture and artworks.
Arguably a work of art itself, the property features a curated selection of Italian and European antiques, including prized furniture from the 20th century. Salvagni also typically opts for natural materials and finishes for his projects, which stand the test of time without requiring energy-heavy processes to be created. The Italian designer also seeks out local crafts and tradespeople to work with in order to soften the project’s impact on the environment and to invest in the local economy.
Discussing the project, Salvagni said: “I have found that when designing for today’s more eco-sensitive collector they really have a desire to buy well and buy once. They see the investment value in collectible design and are seeking out pieces that will stand the test of time. Whether they are pieces we have created for them or great 20th century design and antiques sourced from auction houses and top dealers, they are carefully considering the craftsmanship and overall quality of the pieces.”
