Vision Board: Claudio Faria
A fixture in the Miami Design District, Claudio Faria, the longtime director of Ornare, is the handsome face of the Brazilian brand—a true global citizen who’s fashioned a life and taste level as refined as his company.
For South Floridians, and especially Miamians, Claudio Faria is Ornare, the São Paulo-founded brand that shows high-end homeowners how to do kitchens and closets right. The dapper director doesn’t lord over so much as glide through the Design District showroom, and the pride he takes in his product is evident in the purr of his voice. “We’re so much more than we ever were,” he says, “and that’s what we’re trying to show with this new West East collection, that we’re in every room in the house.” And when he’s not on the job, Faria seems like he’s in every glam corner of the world, from the Spanish island of Formentera to Telluride, globetrotting with his typical elegance in styles by Loro Piana.
