A threesome of French entrepreneurs banded together under Modani Furniture to express their vision for modern décor and spice up contemporary living at the most incredible prices on the market. The idea is to strip down to the basics with simple lines and classic colors joined together with a splash of flair from around the world. With over the top design and low prices, Modani is introducing designer furniture that is fashionable and affordable.

Nathan Cohen, Steven Athea, and Yonel Fellous, all from Paris, France, crossed paths in Miami, FL several years ago to discover their shared hunger for success and interior design. “Our main vision is to make modern furniture different and ultra contemporary. We take influences of eclectic furniture from around the globe to offer something you don’t see on the market at an affordable price,” says co-founder Nathan Cohen. In July 2007 they launched Modani Furniture in Miami and, since then, their sales have been on the rise.

Collections include a variety of well-known designer pieces along with individual creations from Neo-Baroque styles combined with a modern flair, eclectic Indian designs, clear-cut cool tones of black and white, or Zen selections; all offered at a wholesale price that is three times more affordable than the average designer furniture store prices. The latest launch of their pre-arranged designer packages has created a buzz for consumers in need of interior decorating direction.

Modani’s designs have furnished the homes of celebrities ranging from P. Diddy to international actors, singers and entrepreneurs.
