From Chamblee to Old Chattahoochee Road and the farthest reaches of Decatur, Atlanta is loaded with unique (and intriguing chain-store) destinations for interior design enthusiasts in search of pieces small and large.

At the dawn of this new year, we’ve updated our map that showcases a variety of non-IKEA favorites, where Atlantans can bag anything from rusty Americana kitsch and credenzas made of school lockers to posh sectionals costing north of $12,000.

It's proof that Atlanta has no shortage of options, from boutiques to mega showrooms, for making most any room feel like home.

Horizon Home Furniture Outlet

Copy Link

New location alert! After standing for years in the Ellsworth Industrial Boulevard flank of Atlanta’s Westside Design District (opposite TopGolf), Horizon Home Furniture has uprooted—but not far—to nearby Old Chattahoochee Avenue. The sprawling showroom outlet offers sometimes bizarre and almost always discounted furnishings gathered from around the globe.

Kaboodle

Keen on finding cabinetry or credenzas made from salvaged school lockers? Local art comprised of wax? A midcentury television cabinet? Quirky, fun-loving Kaboodle in the heart of the EAV is a good bet for decor that'll get your friends talking.

Designed and built more than a half-century ago by the late John Portman, ADAC (the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center) is the epicenter of interior design in the Southeast, offering more than 60 showrooms across 550,000 square feet. It's open to all design enthusiasts, provided they check in at the front desk.

City Issue

Midcentury modern fanatics of Atlanta who haven’t wandered City Issue are missing out. The Inman Park retailer, in business since 2000, specializes in pieces from the 1950s to early 1970s, most of which have been sourced from original owners on the East Coast. There’s rarely a dud among these stylish artifacts.

Kudzu Antiques + Modern

Copy Link

It's easy to get lost—in the most joyous way—in this sprawling compound of kitsch in a tucked-away section of Decatur near Your DeKalb Farmer’s Market. Open for nearly four decades now, the 25,000-square-foot Kudzu (and its sister location in Sandy Springs) is more than antiques these days, with an emphasis on contemporary furniture that usually has rustic DNA.

Sugarboo & Co.

Copy Link

Known for its whimsical home accessories, this is a go-to spot for pillows, wall art, rugs, and even garden decor. That whimsy also carries over to a wide selection of paper goods (think notepads, calendars, and journals), handmade ceramics (made in Roswell), jewelry, and gifts for family, friends, and your favorite pets.

Nandina Home & Design

Copy Link

At this Sandy Springs home store (formerly of Inman Park), shoppers can peruse a wide selection of high-end furniture, rugs, lighting, accessories, and art, while taking advantage of an onsite, full-service design atelier. Doing the latter would enlist the aid of Nandina designers to create unique interior pizzazz.

Ligne Roset Atlanta

Copy Link

Ligne Roset pieces epitomize modern luxury that goes beyond the traditional black and white, often sporting bright, bold colors, daring shapes, and wildly inventive prints. Like most offerings at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta, that panache doesn't always come cheap, as sofas can cost up to $5,600.

Design Within Reach

Copy Link

A couple of years ago, DWR decamped from its two-story Buckhead showroom to an airy Westside building on Howell Mill Road that's three times larger, where designs by the likes of Charles and Ray Eames, George Nelson, and newer artists such as the Egg Collective shine brighter.

Broad Street Antique Mall

Copy Link

For antique hounds on the hunt for that one sterling piece to tie a room together, it’s tough to go wrong with any proprietor at the Chamblee Antique Row District, billed as the South’s biggest. But the largest, sometimes wackiest collection under a single roof probably belongs to Broad Street Antique Mall, a mainstay since 1979.

Interiors Market

Copy Link

A popular destination for interior designers of Buckhead (and way beyond), this longstanding Bennett Street shop specializes in "architectural accents, decorative accessories, quality art, and country furnishings" that are typically high-end and always unique.

Room & Board

Copy Link

This multi-floor retailer debuted in a circa-1910 meatpacking building back in 2009, and it’s consistently been ranked among the top design destinations in Atlanta since. Room & Board specializes in approachable modern furnishings—often made in America—that usually aren't cheap but won't destroy credit scores either.

This is where Ben Soleimani rugs meet valet parking. Restoration Hardware’s six-story, 70,000-square-foot outpost isn’t so much a showplace as a show-palace, replete with estate gardens and an interactive design atelier, all topped with a park and conservatory with skyline views for miles.
