We got together with founder of Latin America Fashion Summit (LAFS), Estefania La Cayo for a special Tabletop Curation at her house, a first of a new series of interior design curations featuring our Home Collection. Inspired by a perfect outdoor summer lunch in Miami, Estefania brought together fun colors and beautiful prints with wild flowers, to palms and tons of greenery.

Can you share about your favorite places to travel?
Estefania: My favorite place to travel to is Paris! I get inspired by its architecture and museums. I really enjoy spending time there during Fashion Week meeting with old friends. Istanbul is another place I'm absolutely in love with. I love the culture, the people, the food, its history and architecture. It's one of the most beautiful places I ever visited!
Being now in Miami, has your entertainment schedule and style changed?
Estefania: My entertainment schedule has changed significantly. From entertaining once a month I went up to doing it twice a week! In NY, I used to meet with a few people indoors and have intimate dinners. Now I enjoy outdoor gatherings with larger groups. As for my style, in Miami I'm using more fun colors and beautiful prints with wild flowers, palms and tons of greeneries. In NY it was more about an autumn sober palette.

What’s on your table today?
Estefania: My everyday china is a white Bernardaud. I enjoy playing with my tablecloth and napkins to create a different story each time!
Can you describe your favorite tabletop and tell me your favorite designers for tabletop from Latin America?
Estefania: There is so much talent in tabletop coming from Latin America! I love supporting them. These are some of my favorite brands from our region: Eledu Home and Karla Lacayo have the best tablecloth and I adore the table accessories from Esencial. Accompanied by the beautiful hand-painted placemats and vase by ALEPEL. They are all Latin women that I truly admire.
