Migrating from Paris to Miami has been fruitful for Patricia Morrison and Orianna Tufano Morrison, the mother-and-daughter team behind OM Editions, an online retailer that’s all about “cultivating harmony at home.” In just three short years, their site has become a go-to favorite for design lovers in search of limited-edition furniture and homeware collections with artisanal vibes.
Most of that has to do with the knowledge and love that the company’s founders bring to the table. Orianna’s career trajectory includes collaborating with major artists at contemporary galleries all around the world, while Patricia’s expertise includes 25 years of work as a luxury real estate agent and interior designer. “We are innately familiar [with our business],” says Orianna.
And it shows. OM Editions’ inaugural Edition 01 collection consists of eight contemporary, conversation-worthy pieces, ranging from the wood-and-glass GlobeWoo coffee table to a nearly 7-foot-tall wooden screen featuring prismatic plexiglass panels. Erotic-themed plates from French artist Karla Sutra and playful hanging sculptures from Spanish brand Solito Mobiles are also offered on the line as part of a homeware compilation that grows to include new artists every few months.
Although OM’s works are produced in Europe, and even though for years the pair has successfully catered to an exclusively European clientele, Patricia says the move to South Florida just made plain sense: “This new chapter feels like a homecoming in many ways. We’ve witnessed Miami evolve into a place where art and culture are fueled by an international community with unique global sensibilities. OM Editions embodies all that.”
As for what’s ahead, the duo is busy working out the details of the release of Edition 02 (which will include sofas, poufs, and a bed frame in specialized materials, fabrics, and colors), considering a brick-and-mortar location for a showroom, and staying true to their mantra of, as Orianne puts it, “pushing beyond the common definitions of design.”
