Linen is a distinctively European tradition, and with the keen scene of interior design and detail, a new showroom has opened in SOMI.
Alexandre Turpault dates to 1847 in France when he founded his company at Cholet, an area famous for its textile heritage. Turpault’s genius and savoir-faire brought together the weaving of linen and linen blends into an industrial workshop that became famous for producing the highest quality craftsmanship combined with Turpault’s unique fabrics.
Alexandre Turpault fine linens collections are sold at Paris’s iconic first department store, Le Bon Marché, partner of the brand since 1862 and promoter of the famous “White Fair” in January.
For many years Alexandre Turpault was a prominent figure in the luxury goods market. Turpault was awarded a silver and gold medal for the superlative quality of his fabrics featured at the 1878 and 1889 Paris Universal Exhibitions. Turpault’s legendary reputation still thrives today as can be seen in each stunning collection.
The showroom in South Miami is the only such showroom in the United States. Shoppers will find the highly Certified Masters of Linen for bed, bath, beach, table and kitchen.
Customers will also find Böhmerwald bedding, duvets and duvet pillows, Nemours, French velvet pillows, and the Cire Trvdon candle collection that dates back to the 17th century catering to French court and clergy. Mohair, fine silks and other textiles are found in the showroom, including Peruvian baby Alpaca which is fabricated in France.
South Miami was the ideal location for owner Wesley Lambert of the Bahamas to fulfill his vision and dream. South Miami is well-known for its active French community; Miami is an excellent luxury market, and the location is convenient for travel to/from the Bahamas.
J. McLaughlin recently opened its 98th location right here in SOMI at 5819 Sunset Drive. With locations in Boca Raton, Las Olas Boulevard and the Ocean Reef Club just to name a few in South Florida, J.McLaughlin boutiques occupy some of the most picturesque main-street real estate in America.
J.McLaughlin was started in 1977 by two brothers, Jay and Kevin. They were young at the time, but had already had some success renovating Brooklyn townhouses. Their bigger goal was to create a new American sportswear brand, one that was based in New York and built on pretty basic concepts, classic clothes with current relevance, sold in a friendly retail environment with a neighborhood feel.
The J.McLaughlin brand values tradition. It is more about style than fashion: straightforward, unpretentious clothing and accessories that encourage a natural sense of ease and confidence. Like our customers, our clothes and accessories are natural travelers: they go from beach to brunch, from campus cocktails to playgrounds of choice to places of work. The brand believes in American nostalgia and the designs have the cut and color of good memories.
Price points in the boutique are: Women’s Dresses, $205-$245, Women’s tops $175, Men’s pants $175, Men’s polo shirts $88, Men’s button ups $145.

The three have been friends for more than a decade in their native Venezuela. They decided to create an idea to revolutionize the coffee shop industry and open their very first business together.
After leaving Venezuela they came to this country and travelled the East Coast before finally settling in Florida. And they choose South Miami because it is a “growing and innovative area perfect as a pilot town for our new flavors and products,” says Carlos Feng.
Two Plus One Café enjoys a multicultural background bringing the customer the exotic flavors of Asia, the friendly quality service of South America and the wonderful taste of European Coffee. The whole idea came to them, “not to just sell you a product but to make you feel like family at home.”
And just perhaps you’re asking: why “Two Plus One?” Simple, according to Carlos: two ideas in addition to one solution became one dream. That’s why “We represent something more than just a
cup a coffee.”
