On Thursday, October 2, 2014,  Artefacto Coral Gables hosted its fourth annual Design House, an exclusive event at which internationally-recognized interior designers unveiled their latest looks. Each design was inspired by a “Lady of the House,” one of ten Miami women honored that evening for their philanthropic work and sophisticated living. In recognition of these women and their impact on the Miami community, Artefactor owner, Paulo Bacchi, donated $50,000 to be distributed among the charities championed by each woman.

Nearly 1,000 guests gathered at Artefacto for the invite-only event. Now in its fourth year, Design House showcases the latest designs from well-known interior designers, each incorporating Artefacto’s newest collections. Exhibitions unveiled at Design House will be on display in Artefacto’s showrooms for 11 months.
