International interior designer Perla Lichi, Perla Lichi Design, of Coral Springs, FL and Dubai, UAE, and high-end modern Italian furniture specialist Nicola Belletti, of Abitare and Versace Home, Miami, have announced their forthcoming collaboration “Perla Lichi featuring Versace Home”.
The Versace Home Collection, created in 1992, has been the natural extension of the creative universe of Gianni Versace; fashion, design, and the passion for all forms of arts, theater, dance, painting and sculpture. The line includes a complete line of furniture, lighting, wall paper, flooring, accessories, textiles, fabrics and tableware.
“We feel that the interior design work of Perla Lichi is the ideal market for Versace Home products,” said Mr. Belletti, of Abitare, which exclusively represents Versace Home. Mr. Belletti opened the Abitare Versace Home showroom in the Miami Design District in 2013.
“We were impressed with the interior work exemplified by Perla Lichi’s design of a South African estate, a Kenya villa, and a large estate home in Hollywood, Florida, that we saw when she won top awards for these outstanding luxury projects at the recent Florida Atlantic Building Association annual awards program this Spring,” said Mr. Belletti.
“We have followed her 30-year career of creating award-winning international projects worldwide. We love the quality of her design work and her ability to provide clients with complete design services and products from A-Z, from concept design through full execution.”
“When we met with her and explored her work further,” added Belletti, “we were convinced that we wanted to see our products in her showroom and in her work in Florida and around the world. We believe that Perla Lichi and Versace Home are a perfect match.”
“I have always admired the style of Versace and have been inspired myself by this designer. I always believed that the names Perla Lichi and Versace have a musical ring and belong together rhythmically and spiritually. It will be an honor to feature this line in my interior design projects as an added feature,” said Perla Lichi.
Nicola Belletti has earned a reputation as one of the most knowledgeable furniture importers today, specializing in modern Italian high-end lines. It was this prominence in his field, with his Abitare showroom in Miami, that earned his appointment to represent the prestigious Versace Home line of products.
A graduate and former Board member of The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, Perla Lichi is working on projects locally and internationally from her Coral Springs headquarters and a new showroom on one of the top floors of the prestigious Hotel H on Sheikh Zayed Road Dubai. Because the company has its own factories and workrooms, Perla Lichi can offer extraordinary custom results at competitive pricing.
