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.

Miami, Avant Garde Home Furnishings, LLC's backyard

Miami, A beautiful modern, contemporary city...

The now famous American Airlines Arena

At Avant-Garde Home Furnishings, where we specialize in everything modern & contemporary for your home, we are so lucky that we call Miami our home base. This is a fast paced city where the words Modern, Contemporary are just about every-where that you turn. From buildings, to homes, to condos to just about every corner of this city you find that the style of choice in this modern city is minimal modern contemporary with accent pieces of other styles and of course Art Deco, the home grown movement back in the day but even all those places have transformed themselves on the inside as beautiful glamorous modern contemporary inter designs and now we have places like the Ritz, Sagamore, Delano, who are still very much art deco on the outside but a totally different world inside. It seems all these places now compete with one another to see who gets the better designs in the style we call Modern, contemporary...

Biscayne Blvd Buildings 


Everyday new items such as  modern faucets, modern sinks, modern cabinets, modern furniture come into the market place but with so many new and exciting modern contemporary furniture stores here in Miami, Avant-Garde has a real front row seat to see all the new creative designs come out and which ones actually catch on before the rest of the country dos and really gives them a good perspective on what to expect about certain items. For example anytime a PRODUCT COMES OUT AND YOU SEE IT show up on the design interiors of famous hotels like the Delano, Ritz, Lowes, then you know it will be big.

These places have made and broken designers for being good and getting in the door and of course for being bad and not making it which sends their careers spiring down. These guys present the new standard in the modern contemporary design world and Miami is full of these types of places. Take the Icon on Brickell, the W on Miami Beach, the renovated Eden Roc Hotel, Fountain Bleu Hilton, all of which switched from more traditional designs of the past and revamped themselves into a more current modern contemporary feel. These places from the outside look just as beautiful as they did back in the 60';s but on the inside they are a new modern world of modern kitchens, bathrooms, furniture pieces, accent pieces, bedding, living rooms, unlike anything we had back then. They are all now minimalist designs where less seems to be better and hardwood floors and modern area rugs have taken the place of old grand marble floors, where old grand banister staircases have been replaced by new glass and steel minimal and very clean cut modern wonders.

Miami's modern contemporary tolls 


The new Marlins Stadium is a modern wonder with automated bathrooms, automated modern faucets, toilets, gadgets, and everything in between and its design and retractable roof are the definition of modern contemporary style and design. The Performing arts center downtown Miami, The performing arts center on Miami Beach, all have been completely redone by famous architects like IM Pei in the modern, contemporary world, all with their own unique feel and appearance all with a very Miami attitude and feel about them unifying this city under the modern contemporary umbrella. Then there is the American Airlines Arena which closes the deal with its angles and curves that seem to end and go no where.. A building way ahead of its time and one that is very impressive..

Brickell Skyscrapers
