ADAC Unveils New Showrooms, Expansions

February 18, 2024

Continually committed to serving the design industry with fresh offerings, Atlanta Decorative Arts Center (ADAC) is starting the year off strong by bringing on two new showrooms and three current tenant expansions set to open this spring. Milieu and French Market Collection join the roster at the Southeast’s preeminent design destination which is maintaining 90% leased, a high number when considering businesses are still defining retail and office space requirements post-pandemic.

In addition to the two new showrooms, several of ADAC’s existing tenants have recently experienced exponential growth, resulting in the need to expand current space to better accommodate clientele and display an additional range of products and services. Current expansions include C + H Interiors increasing its current showroom to an impressive 4,500 square feet including a fine art gallery, Made Goods showroom expanding to 8,900 square feet including a recently launched collection of vanities, and Susan Currie Design expanding its studio to a chic 750 square feet.

“We are overjoyed to welcome two extraordinary new showrooms, adding a fresh wave of products and services to our community,” says Katie Miner, General Manager, ADAC. “The expansion of existing showrooms and design offices is a testament to our commitment to providing an unparalleled platform for phenomenal businesses in the industry. At ADAC, our goal is to ensure our partners’ creative and functional needs are not just met but surpassed.”

Below are details on the latest ADAC showroom and design studio news:

Milieu | Suite 502
Milieu, an exceptional game table company, is set to unveil a remarkable, 1,350-square-foot showroom at ADAC in Spring 2024.

French Market Collection | Suite 407
The French Market Collection has made the strategic decision to relocate to ADAC after thirty-seven years in its previous location. “We chose to relocate to ADAC to provide a better shopping environment for our customers,” said owner Peggy Richardson. Spanning an impressive 4,288 square feet, the new location will showcase an exquisite array of art, décor, and furniture, including handspun Aubusson rugs, embroidery pillows, tables, chairs, and more. The showroom will be opening in Spring 2024, carrying lines such as New Growth Designs featuring florals, plants, trees, planters, and Enduraleaf UV stable plants and trees for outdoor use, as well as Get Lit Ltd designer lighting.

C + H Interiors | Suite 418 + 420
After three years of residence at ADAC, C + H Interiors is more than doubling its existing showroom to 4,500 square feet of space to better accommodate all its bespoke project endeavors and include its own in-house fine art gallery. New product lines include Dell Anno, European style cabinetry and furniture; Interlude Home, contemporary furniture; Adriana Hoyos, timeless products all emitting distinct personality; Jimeco Interiors, a legacy of elegant finishes, joinery, and furniture; and BNF Studio, expertly crafted, unique furniture. “One of my primary destinations as a designer has always been ADAC,” said owner Lia Shin. “Because of this, when I searched for ideal locations to open a product showroom, I had no doubt that ADAC would be the best and only option.” The expanded showroom will be open to the public in Spring 2024.

Made Goods | Suite 403
Located in ADAC since 2018, Made Goods is a wholesale brand focused on creating special statement pieces for designers and boutiques. To provide more space to showcase its tableware, bath, and fragrance displays, Made Goods is expanding its existing showroom to an expansive 8,900 square feet. “We are so excited about the expansion of our showroom,” said Keyana Pratt, Public Relations Coordinator. “Since 2018, we have been with ADAC, and for us, it only felt natural to continue our collaboration and expand on our existing showroom. We have expanded our Blue Pheasant display, Thucassi display, and the biggest addition is our vanity collection. We have expanded into the space next door and renovated portions of the existing showroom to give it a fresh new look to display all our beautiful products.” Designers can now shop for all brands directly from the showroom floor today.

Susan Currie Design | Suite 503C
After opening its new design office at ADAC in 2020, Susan Currie Design has increased to 750 square feet of studio space boasting natural light and more storage space for optimal organization and creativity. With this new space, there was also room to add a new designer to the team. “Having my interior design studio at ADAC offers not just a great space, but a location rich in resources,” said owner Susan Currie. “Being situated in one of the premier design centers in the United States allows me to seamlessly navigate multiple showrooms, enhancing our ability to bring unique visions to life for every project.” The estimated move-in date is early March 2024.

ADAC features over 65 unique showrooms and 25 design studios that are open to the public Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
