FrontRunners: Full Steam Ahead

Linda Marx

A Phillipe Starke-designed steam bath sets the tone in the front display window of Steam (305.669.9991, www.steamstyle.com), a new 2,400-square-foot South Miami boutique, while a Moroccan tent-themed dressing room and a 1920s elevator cage embellish an interior that exudes a hip St.-Tropez-meets-South- Beach ambience. As an actor and now a retailer, owner David Caruso, formerly of NYPD Blue and currently starring in the new CBS-TV series CSI: Miami, should understand a thing or two about shopping as a form of entertainment.

With its edgy and eclectic inventory, Steam aims to be a one-stop shop for the sophisticated traveler. Glittering antique evening bags, silver flatware, bowls, vases, trays, ice chests, and even luggage complement exclusive fashions from South Africa, Japan, and Argentina.
