“Design Miami Is Understated, but its Offerings Certainly Aren’t”
— The New York Times
When Creative Edge Partners reached out with their bold yet humble wooden house project for Design Miami 2018 we couldn’t resist taking on the challenge!
Creative Edge Parties with their home base in NYC and now in Miami was the exclusive food and beverage partner of Design Miami/2018.
They designed and Scotty Wonders built a garden inspired cafe for fairgoers featuring a spectrum of food and beverages with both indoor and outdoor seating.
"Wynwood Yard–the Miami Woodstock for locals to indulge themselves in live music, cultural activities, and food–was created."
-Pola Bunster, Prism Creative Group
Who can say no to Della Heiman, founder and brilliant mind behind the Wynwood Yard. For this project, we were tapped on the shoulder to create the rebar pergola in their urban farm station and the modular sawhorse inspired picnic tables. Weather enjoying a refreshing drink on the hammocks or a bite of culinary heaven you will experience the talent craftsmanship of our design team.

"The best place for a first date in Miami."

There's nothing like delicious décor to set the stage for an even more delicious ice cream experience. Louisa came to us as a budding entrepreneur with an endless stream of ideas and hopes for the build out of her first ice cream shop.
With a healthy heap of collaborative spirit and drive to deliver on her
cozy wooden sugar den we came up with the concept of utilizing reclaimed pallet wood in various herringbone patterns to create the counters, signage and furniture.
Our favorite piece was the mini kids table!
Rail 71 Cafe
One can never go wrong with their avocado toast!
An all-natural cafe located in
Little River, Miami specializing in wholesome and tasty bites.
This project was a full scale buildout from the bar to the café tables and serving trays we worked hard to showcase his love for all things Miami Made.
We used “shou sugi ban” the ancient technique of Japanese wood charring. This process of burning the wood created an antique aesthetic to his modern café.

Fueled by dedication to his craft, Jason Wiesberg called upon our team to build a bar that could rival the deliciousness of their signature wood-fired Neapolitan pies.

Kiss the cook or kiss the craftsman? We had delicious fun coming up with the design for this cozy kosher BBQ spot. Offy Shifman came to us as a excited chef turned restauranteur in need of a concept and full build-out of his new restaurant. We carefully mirrored the wood and decor choices to complement the menu and vibe. Our favorite highlights were creating the reclaimed dock wood + copper top bar and the pallet plank hand distressed wall coverings. Sweet as molasses!
Zak the Baker
“The coolest kosher bakery in Wynwood—make that Miami”
— Bon Appétit.
This cozy eatery is a kosher bakery/cafe preparing signature sourdough & other loaves, plus sandwiches, soups & salads located in the heart of Wynwood.
Zak came to us with the task of using sustainably sourced materials to create furnishings and décor that matched the hand crafted aesthetic of his brand.
We used local reclaimed pallets from a Little Havana warehouse to fabricate communal benches, artisanal café tables and a multiuse bar build out. Our woodwork has been the lovely backdrop to over 12K delicious customer produced photos! Yum.
