Antiques collection to debut at Atlanta
Innovative Antiques Collection joins the nation’s only global wholesale marketplace at The Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market, from July 14-17, 2016
AmericasMart® Atlanta continues its long history of product category innovations and introductions with the launch of Antiques, a juried collection showcasing an extraordinary range of authentic fine furnishings and classic, one-of-a-kind home accents, at The Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market® in July.
Antiques features 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th century furnishings and accents, original art, lighting, glassware and china, sterling silver, heirloom jewelry, and estate collectables by top-tier dealers from the U.S. and abroad in more than 55,000 square feet of exhibition space on Building 1, Floor 2. Ideal for specialty retailers, interior designers and antique enthusiasts, the inspirational collection welcomes buyers Thursday, July 14 through Sunday, July 17, 2016.
“The current trend in home décor is lifestyle – creating a unique space that seamlessly fits into clients’ lives and celebrates their points-of-view. Designers are increasingly using antiques and one-of-a-kind items to tell their clients’ stories,” explains JoAnn Miller Marshall, executive vice president of AmericasMart tradeshows.
“The launch of Antiques is yet another way that AmericasMart is supporting the design community. The collection and its proximity to the permanent Home offerings encourages designers to explore classic and unique items as they source new products from trendsetting home décor, furnishings and rug lines,” she explains.
Buyers are encouraged to visit the Antiques collection each day of the Market to explore new pieces that dealers will be adding to their offerings each day. Items purchased with the Antiques temporary collection may be picked-up at the Distinguished Transport warehouse as early as the day after purchase or by August 1, 2016. Distinguished Transport can also ship items directly to the purchaser via white glove delivery service.
The Temporary Antiques collection complements antique and one-of-a-kind resources including Golden Oldies, Blue Ocean Traders, Gabby, Go Home, Europe 2 You and many more found throughout AmericasMart’s permanent collections.
Antiques and their role in inspired design is discussed by designers, dealers and tastemakers in a panel “Past Perfect: Why Antiques are Essential to Design Projects Across a Wide Range of Ages and Aesthetics” moderated by Elizabeth Ralls, editor of “Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles” during the Market.
