Go behind the scenes & see more from Ann Huff & Meg Harrington in our interview…
One of the Huff Harrington’s favorite AmericasMart showrooms is Atlanta-based Currey & Company, and we couldn’t agree more with that choice! Currey & Company, known today for its vibrant collection of lighting products, started its existence in 1988 as a purveyor of historic garden furnishings. Its distinctive chandeliers and wall sconces now form a significant part of the company’s business, utilizing a myriad of natural materials such as seashells, wood and more. Hand forged iron products have long been the specialty of the company, but the range of materials has been extended to include a variety of materials, including hand-carved wood, porcelain and brass. The graceful wrought iron curves of the stunning, gold leaf-finished Ringmaster Chandelier by Currey provides the perfect finishing touch for her Ann & Meg’s vignette.

One of Nina & Jared’s can’t-miss AmericasMart showrooms, Noir creates unique statement pieces for designers and boutiques alike. Noir emphasizes natural, simple, and classic designs, and are committed to sustainable production. They still build furniture the old fashioned way, using high quality and properly dried solid wood. Noir lead designer Georg Baehler creates every item for Noir the old-fashioned way: with a pencil and paper. Whether wholly original or classically inspired, every Noir product is meticulously designed to scale by Georg’s hand. Georg’s passionate design regimen inspiration comes from an amalgam of classic furniture design, the craftsmen that bring his pieces to life, and sustainable local materials that are available to work with. Nina and Jared love their one-of-a-kind looks, and we think this Multi Face Stool put an intriguing “face” on the pair’s eclectic, inspired vignette design.
Nandina Home & Design
Go behind the scenes & see more from Susan Victor & John Ishmael in our interview…
A favorite of Susan and John’s (and ours!), Gabby is a family company that creates unique, transitional furniture and transitional lighting in eclectic, vintage modern, and antique styles for the design and retail trade. Gabby’s truly exceptional furnishings tell a story of inspiration and craftsmanship, and include unique European-style and antique-style furniture. They continually innovate with unique materials to create something new including accent furniture, dining and occasional tables, chairs, mirrors, lighting fixtures and US-made custom upholstery. The signature Gabby look helped Susan & John pull together their high-style library vignette to perfection!
Go behind the scenes & see more from Steve McKenzie in our interview…
Steve McKenzie’s designs never fail to make a statement, and for this reason, he often uses Barbara Cosgrove Lamps as a source for both modern and traditional lighting. Their collection sets itself apart with sophisticated design, timeless style and high-quality product. Barbara’s gift for taking a classic design and turning it into something modern defines the company’s aesthetic–one which they like to call “nouveau traditional.” Barbara Cosgrove lamps and home accents are sold to the finest retailers and designers across the country, and can be seen gracing luxury hotels around the globe. The scale of their design is confident, the look is classic, the color is subdued yet sure…a nouveau tradition in the making if ever there was one!
The Iron Gate
Go behind the scenes & see more from Rozanne Jackson in our interview…
Rozanne’s midnight garden-inspired vignette brings together many examples of fine design, but perhaps none is as striking as the tree-shaped dining table from Oly that serves as its centerpiece. Known for their line’s casual, inspired elegance, Oly designers Kate McIntyre and Brad Huntzinger have devoted twenty years of design collaboration to evolving this basic idea and creating imaginative products. Their Oly line’s translation of showroom level design into an accessible collection has made them favorites of the design world. Whether these designers are turning their imaginations toward interiors, furniture, artwork, lighting or fashion, the end result is welcoming and relaxed with an original persona – classic yet fresh, luxurious, sophisticated and cool.
Go behind the scenes & see more from Paige Schnell in our interview…
One of Paige Schnell’s must-see showrooms at market, Aidan Gray displays the kind of worldly elegance and timeless grace that is perfectly in line with the Tracery aesthetic. Founded in 2003, Aidan Gray set out to design “one of a kind” looking, high quality products that are more easily attainable than 17th and 18th century antiques. Their love for interiors, design and authentic products that exude “European Grandeur” embodies their company’s desire for products made by hand and with authentic materials such as solid wood, rustic metals, antique mirror, old painted finishes and silk appointments. The European elegance that is the foundation of Aidan Gray requires sophisticated proportions while trying to maintain that “perfect balance” of usefulness and adaptation for today’s home.
