Williams Island Club sits in the heart of North Miami in Aventura, Florida. The areas love and appreciation of art, fashion, design, and architecture as well as its scenic views of the Atlantic Ocean, became the designer’s inspiration for this project.
The 5,000 sqft Island Grill is packed with classic design elements with a European flair. As you enter the Island Grill through the grand Porte Cochere, your gaze is drawn to the impressive Oggetti Italian Credenza. It’s stunning curves and textures of inlaid rattan and coconut twig strips, draw you into the dining room. You are guided by the two-toned Lungarno Italian ceramic tile flooring, laid on the diagonal creating the illusion of an area rug, helping the space to appear more expansive that its mere 5,000 sqft.
The Open Kitchen concept allows each guest an interactive dining experience. The warming lights selected are beautiful decorative light fixtures that give you the feel of dining in your own kitchen.
The true star of the dining room is the custom, hand-blown Hungarian Glass Sculptural Chandelier. Hanging from the center of the vaulted, tongue and groove ceiling, the statement piece marries together the classic architectural details of the dark beams with the delicate glass pedals of the fixture.
