Armella International is a Florida based design consultant partner accepting residential engagement throughout the world. Zena is active in Miami Women's Business Owners Association. She considers herself predominantly self-taught regarding interior design. Her love for reading makes her an unique savvy persona, "our spaces are not ostentatious. Whether room trends lean toward modern or traditional, the interior should look as though it were always there. Well-planned interiors never look heavy-handed or deliberated."
Zena has always had a flair for the dramatic and a passion for all that is beautiful—particularly interior spaces. She launched AI following a much acclaimed career in sales management as director of marketing for international lingerie brands (exclusive representations, wholesale-retail) & the real estate industries. During her 10 years as principal in her own firm she has transformed South Beach condominiums (The Jade, The Brompton, The Sheridan & The Penn Plaza), vacation homes on Miami Beach & North Miami (Calming Retreat, Revival Retreat, Deserving Retreat, etc.), rehab's construction for growing families, and many low cost projects, a plus, for single home commuters. Her impressive background is put in practice when interacting with her clientele.
