Antiquing in Atlanta
Atlanta has a strong decorative arts community, and it’s bolstered by an array of antiques shops and markets. From dealers specializing in one specific genre to design showrooms at ADAC that incorporate a broad range of antiques with their contemporary lines, shoppers can find almost every style and period of antique. While some businesses ship via the proverbial container from Europe, others carefully curate inventory via private collections, auctions and estate sales. With such an abundance of antiques shops, markets and showrooms, Atlanta remains a trusted resource for designers and clients throughout the Southeast. Here, six designers share with former antiques dealer Suzanna Cullen Hamilton their perennial favorites in Atlanta, as well as shopping experiences farther afield.
