About Alexander Calzadilla

Alexander Calzadilla is a Cuban male originally from Philadelphia, who has happily called Miami his home since moving here at the age of 15. He attended Southwest Sr. High School and Florida International University, ultimately receiving his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. While in college, he began working as a paralegal for the Law Offices of Jeffrey E. Reichenbacher, a position he kept for seven years after graduation. He subsequently worked at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius Associates before landing at Costa Nursery. After distinguishing himself with many accomplishments, he was promoted to the position of Director of Specialty Products, which included the orchid, bonsai and lucky bamboo departments. When Alex was first put in charge of the three departments, they ranked near the bottom. By the time he left Costa after seven years, Alex had transformed the floundering departments into unqualified successes, posting record earnings, sales and profitability. In 2008 Alex was named the Costa Employee of the Year. Alex now puts his formidable prowess as a businessman into his newest venture, Avant-Garde Home Furnishings, LLC, serving as Managing Partner.

To finish off my topic of the great outdoors. I have found additional furniture pieces that are perfect for our modern contemporary homes and outdoor patio sitting areas. We now make our patios an extention of our homes and treat it like any other room in our modern homes. 

Hope you enjoy these pics:

The furniture above all represents my preferred modern, contemporary design style but is also very stylish and elegant and really brings light and notice to our modern, contemporary patios, pool areas, decks, or even balcony's. 


Every modern, contemporary outdoor patio garden and pool needs something very important to complete that nice styled look. I am talking about lighting of course. Here we have to be careful because sometimes in our desire to make pretty we add to much color or place the lighting in the wrong places completely ruining what is otherwise a beautiful design in landscape designing. And yet other times by not adding enough color we make it feel cold and agin ruin our otherwise perfect landscaping. Its all in the lighting and it can make or break any landscaping project.

Have a look at these ideas:

Overall a perfect blend of lightingh and perfect furniture pieces designed to bring attention to your home and bring out its modern, contemporary features and bring them to light...
