Ralph Pucci New Miami Gallery is Now Open

Luxury US furniture and lighting house Ralph Pucci opens its new 10,000 sq ft Miami gallery at 550 NW 28th Street. The new gallery is located in a 1960s former warehouse, continuing the industrial precedent set at the Ralph Pucci headquarters in New York and the Ralph Pucci (Los Angeles) gallery. Ralph Pucci (Miami) offers a vast exhibition space to showcase its stable of globally renowned artists and designers as well as its collections.




To celebrate the opening of Ralph Pucci (Miami), iconic French designer Elizabeth Garouste has created striking murals on the building’s exterior called Strange Vegetation, while artist-designer Hervé Van der Straeten and

architect, artist, and designer Patrick Naggar will both present new work.


The gallery building opening in Miami follows swiftly on from the full-scale renovation undertaken at Ralph Pucci (New York), which greatly expanded the in-house sculpture studio and gallery space as the business pivoted away from mannequin making in the wake of the pandemic. Ralph Pucci also expanded its footprint internationally in 2022 with a pop-up in London’s Albemarle Street, its first European outpost. While maintaining its sculpting and manufacturing capabilities in the heart of Manhattan, Ralph Pucci International has grown to be regarded as one of the best design galleries in the world.


Ralph Pucci says, “Miami is an exciting, vibrant city where many cultures and creatives come together. The local community and visitors appreciate quality design and we have enjoyed a decade of success there already in our previous gallery. We are excited to have more space to show the diverse works of our collaborative artists and designers.”
