Fabulous Finds, The Latest Buzz

Aesthetic Movement

Harbinger of Style

We’re off to Atlanta to buy for our next collection (Fall/Winter 2012, if you can believe it!) and one of our first stops for inspiration is the Aesthetic Movement showroom.

Inspiration from the New York Showroom

Coming across this mecca of taste and style was one of the highlights of last July’s trip and we’re making a point of adding some of their lines to our Diane James Home gift site this spring.  From Thomas Paul…

Aesthetic Movement believes that brushes with beauty can enhance the overall quality of life.  And who are we to argue with a mission like theirs – to “move hearts and minds by advocating the extraordinary – not proliferating the ordinary”?

We’re back from a couple of days of shopping at the Atlanta Gift Show and while we tweeted as we went, we did save some fabulous finds for this post.

Buying stems and vases for our next collection usually takes up much of our time but we did save a day to browse the home decor showrooms and temps now that we’ve added a gift selection to our website.

And while we missed seeing Katie from Matchbook Magazine speak on Friday afternoon and Katherine Ireland on Saturday (note to selves – extend trip one more day in January!), we did mix business with pleasure and met the adorable Kelly from Kelly Market for dinner.  We love sharing ideas and sources with fellow bloggers, especially self-proclaimed product junkies!
