AmericasMart to debut juried HD Home collection in January
Thomas Russell -- Furniture Today, December 6, 2010
AmericasMart announced the upcoming debut of HD Home (High Design Home) at the January 2011 Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market. Building on the success of the High Design collection in the Market Temporaries, HD Home will feature a juried lifestyles collection of design-driven home furnishings and décor.
The collection will be staged in the Center Hall on the first floor of Building 1. Each selected designer and/or company will have approximately 900 square feet of space in which to showcase their designs and product offerings. The debut HD Home collection includes:
Julian Chichester -- an eclectic line of high-design furniture and accessories, debuting the Mr. Brown collection. Both the Chichester and Mr. Brown collections possess English design sensibilities with traditional lines and flourishes.
Bourgeoisie 3D -- an edited collection of contemporary classical furniture, all made in America using materials made in America.
Design Legacy by Kelly O'Neal -- furniture featuring a twist on vintage-inspired design with all products created by O'Neal or a small group of designers.
Ann Gish -- renowned creator of luxurious fine linens and bedding, all designed by the company's namesake.
French Laundry Home -- heirloom, quality home furnishings products crafted in this country from home-grown materials; has been designated a Country Living Artisan.
Tara Shaw -- built from the ground up by the company's namesake, featuring spectacular antique reproductions secured and inspired by continuous travel around the globe.
Modern History -- built on the ongoing family tradition of Yorkshire House, it's a high-end, design-driven furnishings line that tweaks traditional looks via cleaner lines, scale and proportion.
Camilla House -- design atelier and manufacturer of garden products that meet the changing needs of design professionals as well as the avid gardener; supported by an in-house design department that can design and develop a single product for a target price or put together an entire garden program.
Each HD Home exhibitor has its own unique approach to product design, but all share the same enthusiasm for innovation and collaboration. The collections together create a destination for retailers and interior designers unlike any other product center in AmericasMart's four-building campus.
The HD Home showcase supports and enhances the design-driven home furnishings and accessories offered in the permanent showrooms in AmericasMart's HOME building.
To celebrate and introduce this new collection, AmericasMart is hosting an exclusive HD Home preview party at the January Market, co-hosted by media sponsor Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles.
