Refreshed and Revived
What a whirlwind start of the year we’ve had… From a couple of days on a Mexican beach to a week of buying stems and selling our flowers at the AmericasMart in Atlanta, we are due for a little rest! So why not start off the weekend with the serene elegance of Revival, a one-of-a-kind store in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Cire Trudon Candles
Called “the savviest, prettiest, loveliest design store in America” by Bobby McAlpine in Architectural Digest last year, Revival has something for everyone thanks to the discerning editorial eyes of co-owners Rodney Simmons and Billy Woodall. The store is filled with creative vignettes using furniture and home accessories (both vintage and new) from around the world and we can just imagine spending the day browsing (or just lounging on a lushly upholstered chaise!)
We met Rodney when he stopped by our booth to admire our flowers and knew at once that we’d love to be part of his “uncommon” selection of luxury goods. Alas, faux flowers may not be for him and that’s OK… he did mention that they might work for a large project he’s working on in Denver so our fingers are crossed! Are you looking forward to a relaxing weekend, too?

Pleasant Living in Wisconsin
If you happen to be in Madison, Wisconsin this summer – or any time during the year – be sure to stop by Pleasant Living, the brainchild of Rick Shaver and Lee Melahn. Attracted by a simpler, more fulfilling lifestyle, this former New York-based design duo now call the mid-west home and have created an atelier filled with life’s little luxuries.

Cross the threshold of Pleasant Living and be immediately surrounded by an atmosphere that is both welcoming and relaxing. Rick and Lee’s taste range from the traditional to the contemporary so there’s something for everyone.

Meet with the Designers
We think anyone in the vicinity of Madison is lucky to have this new little gem in the neighborhood and only wish it weren’t so far. The store just opened last week so stop by and see it for yourself!
