Name: Ruben
Location: Miami

Eclectic, glamorous, fresh, and classic. My wife and I (both designers) moved into our apartment about a year ago. Being newlyweds and having just opened our own design firm our budget was tight but our vision was grand. Our apartment is 900SF (1 bedroom 1 bathroom) overlooking the Miami River.

We used innovative multi functional storage techniques including a coffee table made out of books (we call it 'coffee book table') and floor to almost ceiling units in the dining room and bedroom to conceal all our stuff. We have a great mixture of furniture from all around the world some new and some old.

We're proud of the innovative art work we've made including a straw sculpture (yes that's drinking straws – each one hand sewn together) and a paint chip "painting" on the wall above the sofa entirely made of paint chips from our local home improvement store. We call it the "non painting". I hope you like our home.

Thanks, Ruben!
