With all the store vacancies happening around Miami, it's wonderful to see a neighborhood revamping themselves to fill those vacancies. One such neighborhood is a stretch of vintage shops, between 7th and 9th Avenue on NE 125th Street, in North Miami. Here you can find nine Mid-Century dealers, within two blocks, called Miami's 20th Century Row.

  • Marc Corbin | 305.899.2509 | 875 NE 125th Street
  • Gary Rubinstein Antiques | 305.0891.7580 | 859-861 NE 125th Street |




One shop I was particularly drawn to was STRIPE. Never-mind the name - STRIPE has a neutral, beachy palette dominating the shop set on cool Florida Terrazzo floors. It specializes in items made from natural materials, like driftwood lamps from the '50s or goat-skin-covered chairs and kidney-bean-shaped coffee tables by T. H. Robsjohn-Gibbings.

Although some of the shops are by appointment only, it's a nice walk, parking nearby, and it's also adjacent to MOCA (the Museum Of Contemporary Art). The shops specialize in finds known locally as "Bal Harbour Baroque" - which can only be found IN Miami (and BTW: keep traveling EAST on 125th, and it will lead you to The Shops of Bal Harbour).

The Mid Century Dealers guide states: "Whether your tastes run in the blue-chip designs of Kagan, Springer, or the quirky - you'll understand why this incredible array of furniture, lighting, art, sculpture, and accessories has earned these two blocks of NE 125th Street the nickname of "20th Century Row". What a FAB FIND!!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Really enjoyed the trip to Miami this morning, thanks! It is always great to arm chair travel!

  2. Did you notice the floor at Stripe, and maybe other shops? It's called Terrazzo, poured concrete with color chips mixed in. Then it's highly polished and sealed. Been around forever and lasts forever. Many old Miami homes take out the old carpet to find Terrazzo underneath. What a treasure.

  3. Yes Anon... I'm familiar with terrazzo floors. The first house we moved into back in '78 had them. Although cold for a home, they are the perfect setting for South Florida vintage shops (and hotels). Although I had worded my post to my FB page including their mention, my apologies for neglecting their call-out here. Thanks for the reminder and I've editied to include...
