Norma King, an experienced and acclaimed interior designer, has returned to Miami Beach after nine years in Houston, Texas gaining experience and furthering her career. The grand opening and ribbon cutting of Norma King Designz took place on January 11th 2013 at her newly renovated boutique located at 766 Arthur Godfrey Road, Miami Beach, Florida 33140.
Mayor Matti Bower participated in the ribbon cutting ceremony and welcomed King back to Miami Beach. In her remarks, she referred to Barbara Capitman and the Miami Design Preservation League, “When Barbara Capitman came, the first group of people that came to Miami Beach to help with preservation were the designers because right away they understood the beauty of the building and what they could do to the building with design, so we are happy to have you back.”
President and CEO of the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce, Jerry Libbin also participated in the ribbon cutting. Neighboring Chamber members, Michael Goldberg from Gibraltar Private Bank & Trust and Rena Kliot from Pulse International Realty, came out to show their support and welcome King to the neighborhood.
King offered refreshments and hors d’oeuvres in her new boutique with beautiful glass tables and chairs. Her boutique doubles as a showroom, where she has a model bathroom and kitchen countertop. The backsplash on the countertop and the stairs leading to it are lit with color-changing LED lights. The space is very unique; the extensive use of white and mirrors along one wall open and brighten the space.
