A terrific new addition to outlet stores in Miami features contemporary classic accessories for office, bathroom, kitchen and entertaining. It’s RLB Outlet and it’s the retail shop of the adjacent hotel and restaurant supplier, Real.life.basic. Items are design minded and quality ,and come in a variety of materials including wood, porcelain, stainless steel, acrylic, bamboo and glass.
This is the place to get white everyday place settings that are durable, stylish, different, and well priced. My favorite items were small everyday glasses (99 cents);
multi purpose stands that serve for umbrellas, stands, you name it (set of 2, $49.99);
and bathroom accessory sets in delicious colors including saffron, olive and turquoise. The 5 piece set is $25.95. Metroweave placements are a very reasonable $1.99 each. Attractive, hard to find entertaining pieces too.
