Blurring the line between art and design, Avant Home brings a curatorial approach to shopping for the home with a disruptive retail experience. 

Since its launch in Miami Beach in 2007, Avant Gallery has been defined by its exciting and forward thinking programming. Known for a focus on accessibility, innovation and market responsiveness, Avant represents a global cadre of established and early-to-mid-career contemporary artists. In 2023, Avant Gallery was once again voted Best Art Gallery by the Miami New Times. Avant Gallery has locations in Miami’s Aventura Mall and Brickell City Centre, and New York City’s Hudson Yards.

In May 2023, Avant Gallery initiated its next evolution, Avant Home, a new retail concept that cross-pollinates the brand’s renowned contemporary art program with a collection of high-end furniture, lighting, inspirational decorative objects and accessories, as well as interior design services, all intertwined with a flair of accessibility. With a team of interior designers and art consultants, Avant Home offers a holistic approach to curating entire room settings by meticulously hand-picking stunning statement furniture pieces, building world-class art collections, and completing the finishing touches with wow-factor details that are personalized for each bespoke project. 

“Throughout Avant’s 16 year history, we’ve learned a great deal from our clients and have recognized their zest to live passionately, which has become our shared ethos,” says Dmitry Prut, Avant Gallery + Home Founder and CEO. “This new direction and addition to what we have to offer marks an exciting milestone for the brand’s continued evolution as a leading destination for cutting-edge contemporary living. And the red-hot market in South Florida makes it the ideal place for introducing this concept.” 

Avant Home’s new preview location in Aventura Mall captures a gallery feel in a showroom setting, highlighting the synergy between the worlds of art and design. With expertly crafted furniture pieces harmonizing with one-of-a-kind artworks, each room brought to life presents a practical approach to shopping for all that’s needed for a collector’s residence. Offering a globally-sourced selection of pieces that are contemporary yet timeless, Avant Home embodies a refreshing elegance that is both imaginative and functional. 

Extending the aesthetics of Avant Gallery, Avant Home showcases a range of furniture options that exude a sense of sophistication blended with whimsy, with categories including accent seating, sofas, coffee tables, beds, bookshelves, dining tables and chairs, consoles and credenzas, rugs, and more. A myriad of pieces in luxurious performance fabrics, polished metal finishes, and rich wood create a visual and tactile experience of the highest caliber. Notable pieces in the selection include iconic seating by renowned artist and designer Ron Arad, Fishnet Chair by Marcel Wanders, works from famed Milan-based  design studio Gufram’s collaborations with Daniel Arsham’s visionary Snarkitecture project, and a rather tongue-in-cheek acrylic chair filled with down feathers by Benjamin Rollins Caldwell—who has been exhibited at the celebrated DesignMiami fair—just to name a few. Debuting during Miami Art Week 2023 is a limited edition collection of rugs created by Henzel Studio in collaboration with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, which reimagines Warhol’s iconic portraits of Marilyn Monroe as luxurious hand-knotted silk and wool rugs. 

For the finishing touches, Avant Home also offers curated packages of Taschen books and exquisite accents—a playful Jean-Michel Basquiat mirror, dining plates featuring the work of Kehinde Wiley and Keith Haring, a collection of hand-painted KAWS figures by Dhani Barragan, and high fashion-inspired sculptures by Becky Rosa, among others. 

Beyond the showroom walls, Avant Home is engaged by real estate developers to expertly design, curate, and stage standout projects aligned with Avant’s own staging brand, Artmosphere®. Residential clients include Porsche Sunny Isles and luxury homes represented by Sotheby’s International Realty.
