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.

Avant-Garde continues to grow...

Avant Garde continues its growth.... 

Avant-Garde the internet start-up furniture company that has grown from an ebay pro store into the website that it is today with increasing sales revenue, staff, and finaly a pl;ace to call home.. As we complete what we thyought would be the firts phase for some time of our expansion, we now will expand into our very own showroom, space. We are not in any way doing retail at this time but instead will show our collections by appointment only to our customers. Our new operating office hours will be 10-5 and our showroom will be available at that time as well for any customer that wishes to schedule an appointment. The same will hgold true for our interior designers who will be readily available for our customers should they need any help in making their decisions or laying out all together and putting the pieces together in a way that they are satisfied...

As we finished the interior offices on the second floor of the building we realized we needed two extra people to manage orders, data entry, and of course finaces and sales so we realized we didnt fit and decidsed to expand a little earlier then expected.. 

Here are some pictures of the almost completed office... 

As far as the extra added personal, we have added Richard and Joelle, two longtime friends who will be in charge of in thevcase of Joelle all staff matters and in the case of Richard, all product development and maintenance on our website. More info and pictures of these guys later as we update our Partners page located within our home site under the partners tab. 

All of these changes are being made with one thing in mind,ade with one thing in mind, our customers.. These changes will allow us to have our products on display, interact with the local public, keep our website and products refreshed and dynamic, and allow for me to have some extra time to help grow the company and reach its full potential..
