Michael Aram is an internationally renowned designer who has lived and worked in India since 1989.

Lyrical and often witty, his work encompasses a wide range of media and reveals a rich and variant source of inspiration.
Our retail shop is the premier store for Michael Aram and is located in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
Inspired by and firmly rooted in Africa, Carrol Boyes takes great delight in presenting the Carrol Boyes Range- irresistible sculptures styled and skillfully crafted in a fusion of metals- pewter, aluminum, and stainless steel- to grace and adorn your home, dinner table and surroundings.
Caskata is committed to making uniquely beautiful things. Each piece is crafted by the skilled hands of an artisan. Caskata uses the finest bone china and creamy white translucent porcelain, delicate to look at, but strong enough to last a lifetime. Many of the pieces are accented in 23 karat gold and platinum.
Throughout his career, Jay Strongwater's love of the bejeweled object-whether it's meant to rest on a tabletop or the graceful curve of a woman's neck- has led him on a journey through the world of home furnishings. In essence, Strongwater created his own niche. "I'm fascinated by the idea of taking our everyday belongings; frames, boxes, clocks; and turning them into a beautiful college of metal, enamel, and crystals."
The roots of the Beatriz Ball Collection began in 1991. The pieces are made entirely by hand, one at a time, using the ancient art of sand casting: pouring a premium quality alloy of molten aluminum into sand molds, and then going through four levels of polishing. Each piece speaks for itself, unfolding a story of the creativity of the artists who designed it and the skill of the craftsmen who manufactured it.
Annieglass, handcrafted glass tableware and decorative accessories, is the unique vision of artist Ann Morhauser of Santa Cruz, California. The very modern plate ornamented with gold or platinum was augmented by a series of marvelously free-form patterns that referenced her Santa Cruz habitat, its mountains, forests, coastline and ocean. Continually entranced by her environment, Annie coined a new term for her distinctive style, "California natural."
Customized corporate gifts are available, engraved crystal, hang tags for engraving as well as engraved metal ware.
