When AFR’s Northern team came South to visit the Miami contingency, we stayed at the Grove Isle Resort & Spa. Since this is one of Miami’s prettiest properties, we decided to take advantage of it (yes, we stayed the weekend for a mini vacation, but that’s not what we’re talking about). Under the fabulous direction of Miami’s account executive, Mandy Diaz
, we pulled together a bunch of AFR’s original (and still best selling) items and whipped up an incredible photo shoot. The weather was perfect for shooting outdoors and Mandy knew exactly what products and layouts to showcase to utilize this pristine setting. Our Madras Charcoal sofas, accented with custom pillows, looked gorgeous against the green grass and brilliant blue sky—the setting was breathtaking. We brought the Corica in closer to the building and it also looked beautiful against the idyllic outdoor setting. As it got hotter and hotter, we decided to go indoors to show how our furnishings worked within “four walls.” Utilizing the indoor event space, the Tuscany collection looked pristine. Ideal for any hotel lobby, it popped there too! We really were able to showcase the endless options these pieces provide.
The team at the hotel was amazing. Thank you Christian Sarquis for being so wonderful. Kudos to you and your staff.
Another big thanks goes out to our outstanding photographer, Ron Olman. We couldn’t ask for a more thorough, patient, and understanding person to help us capture these images.
