Steven La Fonte: President, Steven La Fonte Design

New York City native Steven La Fonte has been cultivating his passion for interior design since the early 1990’s, when he was designing and manufacturing luxury draperies and bedding in Manhattan. His love for fabrics led him to a successful design business. In 1999, Steven relocated his design firm and drapery workroom to south Florida. La Fonte’s projects have been featured in Architectural Digest, Florida Design and Luxe Interiors and Design. La Fonte designs most of his furnishings and has them manufactured locally. La Fonte is inspired by his daily surroundings - nature, fashion, art, people and music. Steven’s style involves bringing the most artistic version of his clients’ views to life.

What do you love most about Your City?

Miami is an international city with sexy vibes. The influence of cultures and its people inspire me. It’s a beautiful city and I love that the colors from nature seem so much more vibrant in Miami. I am grateful for the opportunities this city has offered me.

Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?

Açaí bowl, avocado toast with a side of turkey bacon at Cecconis

What are you doing at:

6:00 AM – In bed hopefully enjoying a deep sleep

10:00 AM - Most likely in my car heading to an appointment

12:00 PM - Favorite Power Lunch spot/meal?

Il Gabbiano feasting on prosciutto and melon,

Scaloppine al Marsala and ricotta cheesecake

7:00 PM -  Just beginning my workout at the gym

11:00 PM - Back in bed and I unplug from the world. I usually I envision tomorrow and then meditate. Sleep is very important for me.

What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?

Start the day with a decaf cafe con leche. In the afternoon I switch over to iced decaf latte with three raw sugars. I drink a protein shake before bed.  These are my daily versions of dessert.

Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?

Instagram is my favorite App. Instagram is a visual narrative and a great way to engage with others personally and professionally. Tom Ford is my favorite IG account. I am inspired by fashion for my interior designs. The page is also very entertaining and often makes me smile.

What should everyone try at least once?

Falling in love

Where do you enjoy getting lost?

I have great memories and stories to share about getting lost. I enjoy being in a new city and getting lost to take advantage of exploring. Getting lost is not a waste of time
