More Outdoor Therapy

All good things must come to an end — except when it comes to Outdoor Therapy, Luminaire’s once-provisional, now-permanent outdoor design showroom. Originally slated to close shop in November 2009, Outdoor Therapy will remain in its Miami Design District digs at least throughout 2010, and most likely beyond. “It’s so important to have outdoor living showcased well,” says Ann Hossler, showroom manager. Everything for open-air space can be found inside the 4,000-square-foot store, from the alfresco essentials — such as Paola Lenti’s brand-new Haven sofa — to the avant-garde embellishments. Among the latter is the indoor/outdoor Gaya fireplace by Safretti, which hangs smartly on the wall, uses renewable energy-infused bio-alcohol and doesn’t require a flue. Other contemporary brands represented include B&B Italia, Living Divani, Viteo and KOS. “It’s not about selling furniture,” says Carolyn Alan, sales representative at Outdoor Therapy. “It’s about reconnecting people to the outdoors.” luminaireoutdoor.com
