New V.I.P members-only mentoring club for creatives debuts in Miami’s world-renowned Wynwood Arts District
Miami, FL – Casa Wynwood, a new shopping concept for luxury buyers of art and home furnishings, is opening its doors to members and partners this coming November in the Seminole building located in the Wynwood Arts District of Miami.
“Casa Wynwood is not a retail store nor is it intended to be a design center,” states Christi Tasker, co-owner of Casa Wynwood. “Rather, it is a living exhibition where a constantly transitioning duo of landscape architects and renowned interior designers will exhibit to give creatives the best opportunity for mentorship and education among the world’s best home furnishings and building materials in real lifestyle applications. The Casa will also provide our vendor-partners an opportunity to grow their brands through hosted events during high profile Miami Art District and Miami Design District events during the year. Manufacturer representatives will also be able to meet with their clients to show products suitable for the luxury consumer beyond traditional means.”
Casa Wynwood presents a well-edited and curated selection of unique original art, one-of-a-kind high-end furniture, home décor, appliances and accessories from around the world -all featured together in a cohesive 2,500 square-foot interior lifestyle setting, including a 2,700 square-foot outdoor garden, a 1,600 square-foot gallery and a 500 square-foot live art demonstration area. The art demonstration is the only space that can be seen from the street level and remains behind a secure gate. All other spaces require a duplicate point of security for members-only access.
The Casa will provide a unique VIP experience for key hospitality purchasers, high-end retail buyers, upscale interior designers with their A-list celebrity clients, and provide a space in Wynwood for high-end luxury brands to host events. The Casa will also provide insight for home and lifestyle publication editors regarding upcoming design and style trends within the luxury market. The Casa curators are currently exploring partnerships with the same vested interest in showcasing new products or one-of-a-kind products first as well as educating designers and architects through CEU (Continuing Education) events.
Miami’s Wynwood Arts District was selected for the first Casa location because “it is one of the most dynamic and leading art districts in the world and renowned for its modernism and style. It is home to hundreds of internationally known artists and draws celebrities, art collectors, and other upscale visitors from around the world during events like Art Basel and Art Wynwood events, among others. International pop artist Romero Britto’s studio is next door to Casa Wynwood and major luxury brands are calling to host events in the CASA,” said Tasker.
Casa Wynwood has already partnered with several renowned interior designers including designer-to-the-stars Erinn Valencich, aka. Erinn V., and the Property Brother’s Brother vs. Brother winner, landscape architect David Font. These designers will architect, design and curate the stylized settings which will be changed quarterly.
Casa Wynwood features will not focus solely on furniture and home decor but will also provide a showcase for the latest in unique appliances, textiles, technology solutions, building materials, landscape design, one-of-a-kind items and beta products sold only in luxury markets. It will also provide select manufacturers an appropriate environment to beta test new product concepts and discover new sales opportunities.
The Casa will host exclusive events several times during the year to introduce new designs. Designers and vendors will exhibit at these events with clientele and provide artists, designers, buyers, manufacturers and new clients an opportunity to network. “The Casa will also be available for other luxury market brands to host CEU and educational events and mentorship talks called Wynwood Talks during Art Basel and other art festivals in Wynwood to give our partners maximum exposure,” says Tasker.
Casa Wynwood is located at 150 SE 25th Road #4D Miami, FL 33129. The Casa will only be available by appointment with a 24-hour notice through the participating vendors and their reps. Membership requests for celebrities and guests will be available in the next 30 days at casawynwood.com Manufacturer participants and vendors for the first period, which ranges from October through December, will be chosen during the last week of May. Artists will be chosen and announced by the end of June. Vendors, manufacturers, publications, artists, and brands interested in being included in or hosting private events in the Casa Wynwood are invited to contact Christi Tasker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
