A dancing and music-filled bash with over 250 guests celebrated the launch of Tui Lifestyle at the Biscayne Boulevard and 38th street showroom in Miami. This new concept offers Tui’s thoughtfully-created interior design, turnkey packages customized to fit an individual floor plan – designed and installed in 72 hours. No kidding.
Architect and interior designer Tui Pranich’s client list reads like an international who’s who, with design budgets that can run up to six figures and even millions of dollars. With Tui Lifestyle you get Tui’s multi-layered, design ideas for a set, much lower price.
The broad range of services can accommodate anyone from an individual to developers and no project is too big or too small for the fully staffed design team. I’ve known the darling Tui, who was born in Thailand, for about 14 years and that is how he works. He is one of those versatile talents who can create anything from the most minimal, gallery-like space to the most lavish, traditional interior a la Palm Beach or New York, yet he has no problem designing one room or taking on a smaller project.
That’s how he and partner Jason Atkins met. Atkins was a client when he got the idea to ‘package Tui’s design brain’ over a year ago. They’ve grown from four employees to 40 and from a 3200 square foot showroom and warehouse to one that is 250,000 square feet. From two room packages to 32. Sounds like something to dance about.
