Crossroads of Design

By Christina O’Flaherty

Retail and design intersect in the latest iteration of AmericasMart’s celebrated vignette design exhibition revealed this past July. The Retail Meets Design Exhibition features vignettes curated by the Southeast’s top design retailers who created their spaces with products sourced at AmericasMart. The spaces express each designer’s unique take on how interior design influences retail to showcase that it’s all here in Atlanta.

“Usually I don’t infuse a lot of glamour into my interiors,” says Steve, “and the vignette was a great way to experiment.”

“We wanted an elegant but peaceful environment made for daydreaming,” say Meg and Ann, “and a quiet joie de vivre.”

“We love strong design,” says Paige. “We wanted some rich color to balance the black and white, and we were inspired by some [pink] peonies we had in a vase.”

“True to our brand statement of ‘real life, real style,’ we wanted to create a room that would wow you with style but would also function perfectly in real life,” says Susan and John.

“We felt creatively drawn to the ‘Silk Road’,” say Nina and Jared, “where inspiration from across Asia and northern Africa can be felt.”

“The inspiration behind our designer vignette is a blooming garden at midnight. The organic element of hand-formed ceramics adds a nice contrast to the elegance of the furnishings,” says Rozanne Jackson.

The vignettes are sponsored by Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles, Restylesource, Castelle, CODARUS, Currey & Company, Jaipur Living, Oly, Up Country Home and VIETRI. Visit the display in Building 1, Floor 14, 14-D-9, during Fall Design Week Featuring Atlanta Gourmet & Gift, September 19 – 23 and VOW | New World of Bridal, September 21 – 23.
