Arango, the fifty-five year old home design store that shuttered at Dadeland Mall 10 months ago, has reopened on Sunset Drive in South Miami. According to Miami Herald, the new location "will strike patrons of the Dadeland store as both familiar and fresh," with minimalistic home goods by American and European designers fit into a smaller space. You'll find less furniture inside and a more tightly curated selection of goods now that they're marketing to a smaller audience.
Apparently, this store may have never happened. David and Marianne Russell, who bought the store from the Arrango's in 1994, were running a pop-up store/gallery in the Bird Roads Arts District while deciding what to do next, stumbled upon a vacant space on Sunset Drive that matched their aesthetic, and decided to go for it. As it always has, this new version of arango will continue to bring about rotating exhibits, lectures, classes and workshops. Now, for example, they're showing off the simple birdcage lamps and home accents by fferrone | gentner for Art Basel.
