A monochrome palette is used throughout Poggi's interior design, broken up by splashes of colour used for statement design pieces and artworks.

In the family room, this is achieved with the Brazilian Campana brothers' red velvet Boa sofa for Italian manufacturers Edra, formed by lengths of pillow entwined into the shape of a seat.

The exterior of the 15,000-square-foot estate is minimal with clean straight lines and white stucco. The estate is encased with transparent sliding glass doors that induce sunshine and Florida's lush greenery reflected on the oversized pool that spans the length of the serene patio, which is outfitted with the relaxing and lounging Frame sofa and Afra armchairs designed by Francesco Rota for Paola Lenti. Across the pool, the Cove sunbeds invite any guest to soak up the warm Florida sun. With their luminous tonalities and their timeless design, Paola Lenti outdoor furniture makes the estate become a true tropical treasure.

For the interior, Poggi chose a sleek and sophisticated range of furniture to create an environment that he describes as soft contemporary with black and white accessories, and artwork enhanced with splashes of color that is offset by polished white limestone flooring. The Extra Wall sofa designed by Piero Lissoni for Living Divani brings balance and symmetry to the living area. The family room is given an eclectic touch of texture and colour with the Campana brothers Boa sofa from Edra. The red velvet Boa rope twist sofa resembles a nest of pillows. Made for comfort are the Derby chairs by Zanotta backed in saddle leather and upholstered in grey linen stand as sculptures. The dining room's black marble wall is juxtaposed with white leather Brno chairs designed by Mies van der Rohe for Knoll around the 10-feet-long Mobile glass top table. Above, is Ingo Maurer's famous Oh Mei Ma ceiling lamp.
