This January, we had the pleasure of attending AmericasMart in Atlanta. It was a jam packed few days! We toured our favorite showrooms like Loloi Rugs and etuHome, hosted a seminar with the ever-inspiring Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co (her top advice for growing a business? Say yes and figure it out later), and followed along with the 2019 Shop the Show Influencers, both via the hashtag #ShoptheShowATL and through the Shop the Show events hosted each day of market.

The group took Market by storm, discovering new trends and soon-to-be iconic pieces along the way. Plus, a few fun parties and events with the influencers made our time in Atlanta extra lively: We learned how to make Aperol Spritzes alongside Annette Joseph, the best way to set a table with Mandy Kellogg Rye, and how to find ease in the kitchen with Kelsey Nixon. Not to mention, Mat Sanders and Brandon Quattrone of Consort Design + Jenny Komenda of Juniper Home helped us find the most stylish home accessories of the season.

It was truly a great start to the year, and one we’ll be reliving with the recap video whenever we need a dose of inspiration and fun:

Is it weird that we’re already counting the days until the next AmericasMart? It’s truly an event designers can’t miss.
