The Americasmart summer show was a delight for the senses, and I wanted to share some of the furnishings and accessories, by virtue of pattern, color, and texture, that caught my attention while in Atlanta.
I started covering the Atlanta show in 2003. I had just moved to Florida and as an editor for Country Living, competing with the other national shelter magazines, it made strategic sense to attend this market since it preceded New York's and gave me an edge in seeing new product and people first. Over the years, despite that I am still challenged by the sheer act of getting from Point A to B, I have developed a loyal fondness for all that the show has to offer and the people who run the show. On a personal note, Americasmart is where Frank and I, had our first date and where we just celebrated our third year together.
The dates for January's show are January 8 - 15th, 2019. More details here.
