After seven weeks sheltering in place, we could all use a design refresh right about now. With all of the meals we are cooking and enjoying at home, why not elevate your table with a new setting? Even better when the pieces are eco-friendly, bright and colorful, machine washable, safe to use outdoors, and affordable.
These chic dinner and salad plates come from Xenia Taler, a Canadian studio that has been designing bamboo dishes for the modern home. With about 8 mix and match patterns to choose from, you can put together a unique look perfect for Miami. Dishes are a mix of ground bamboo discards from a chopstick factory with a food grade melamine binder. BPA, Pthalate, and PVC free.
The bamboo cutlery, salad bowl, servers, and solid dishes is a comparable product made by French company Ekobo and comes in a range of colors. The two lines work very well to mix and match together.
To see all of the choices we carry, go to the home section of our website, www.frangipanimiami.com. Put together your new look and and show up to dinner in style!
Welcome, everyone, to the new Frangipani website and blog! It’s been a great ride so far, and we are excited to take this next step in our journey. We hope you enjoy this new portal into the world of Frangipani. Here’s a window into what defines us and what we love!
Color: At Frangipani, color is our first love, and we have a lot to offer, from a vibrant yellow monkey mask to an aqua patterned pillow, and it’s always changing!
Fashion: We love ourselves a little fashion, and our collection ranges from a large selection of Spiritual Gangster, to Jiva leggings and tanks, to your go to beach coverup from Star mela or Delfina, and espadrilles and beaded sandals to throw on for that day lounging by the pool or running around tropical Miami.
Handmade: Since the store opened in 2012, one of our main goals has always been to have items that are unique. We're drawn to objects hand crafted with love and with a story behind each and every one. Come check out our new Group Partners ceramic pots from Brooklyn. The makers pride themselves on “righting the wrongs of humanity, one pot at a time.” We like to think we are helping them on that journey.
Lifestyle: We know that the average person’s life can become routine… So here at Frangi, we aim to offer you items to brighten up that same old same old; something to make the life you live a little more vibrant. So now, every time you look down at your phone to see that annoying work reminder, smile when you see that ZeroGravity phone case covering it.
Well-designed: Quality is another key ingredient to the Frangipani mix. You don't want to buy an item that’s gonna fall apart in a month! We want something that’s gonna last you for the long run… Not only that, but it is gonna look cute, fresh, and modern at the same time. Try our multicolored and textured Baggus or our Mokoyubi backpacks and see and feel the design behind the product.
Sustainable: Living in Miami, the environment is an especially important part of our daily lives. We appreciate buying items made with sustainability in mind. So take a look at our new Carmine wallets from Japan, created from recycled scraps of highend and handmade wallet manufacturing. Surely it will be a decision you won’t regret.
Eclectic: As you probably know by now, Frangipani is not your average boutique. We pride ourselves on bringing product from all over the world, so you are guaranteed to find at least a few things you won’t see anywhere else. Not only that, but we always have something to satisfy the likes and interests of anyone, from a Russian Criminal Tattoo book for those tat-enthusiasts to handpainted skateboard helmets for our Mia skater boys… Stop by, take a look for yourself, and see what catches your eye.
International: Miami has always had a plethora of different cultures melting into the city as we know it. I mean, come on, where else can you get the best cafe con leche and pastelito, walk two blogs, and stumble upon a great sushi restaurant?? We like to reflect this side of Miami in the store. We take you with us on our travels and experiences here at Frangipani, from the shores of Havana, Cuba to the streets of Barcelona, Spain and everywhere inbetween. Become immersed in this beautiful world and check out our cool sarongs from Mr. Somebody Mr. Nobody from Ghana and our Star Mela totes and clothing from India.
One of a kind: Not only does Frangipani offer many one-of-a-kind items, but our creative mix is one-of-a-kind! All of our items are curated and handpicked especially to fit the aesthetic of our store and our philosophy. We travel near and far with plenty of research in the process to offer unique product that brings you quality, beauty, and fun. Visit us at our home in the heart of Wynwood. Thank you for joining us on the adventure of Frangipani's first four years, and here's to another four! Stick around for new blog posts every week. They will be filled with exciting Frangipani News and what’s going on in the cultural scene of Miami and the world. :)
