ATLANTA SHOPS ON OUR RADAR
We've already got a few shops on our list, so we welcome any comments, updates, corrections or first-hand experiences you've had with these sources.
Switch: Owned by Doug Henderson, this store carries great modern designers, from Alessi to Jasper Morrison. They recently hosted Maxwell during the Apartment Therapy book tour, and you can see lots of store photos in the tour post.
Pieces: Owned by Lee Kleinhelter, this store in Atlanta's Buckhead District carries a sophisticated mix of vintage and new pieces, from Hollywood Regency styles to Mid-Century Modern.
Mothology: Their collection of vintage-inspired decorative objects is a great place to look for bell jars and glass domes, baskets, unique tabletop pieces and elegant furnishings.
Of the Young and the Restless: This fabric store carries unique, hand-printed designs, most printed on 100% linen and some on linen/cotton combinations.
Providence Antiques: It's the brainchild of Claudia Thompson, who has a great eye for putting together new and old objects to create cozy, sophisticated rooms with a little bit of Shabby Chic mixed in.
Soorikian Furniture: Soorikian designs and produces wonderfully modern and organic storage pieces, tables and screens. They also do custom work and architectural interiors.
Bobo Intriguing Objects: Remarkably, this entire building (3 floors and a basement) is empty most of the year until the BoBo's team — led by owners Mark Sage and Rudy Njissen — transforms it during Market weeks (twice a year). Wholesale pricing — not to be missed!
