Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) January 14, 2014
Westside Modern, a mid-century modern furniture showroom, will hold its grand opening on Jan. 23, 2014 at 876 Huff Road in Atlanta’s Design District. Ten percent of all sales from the grand opening will be donated to the Atlanta Humane Society in an effort to help the city’s homeless pets.
In addition to cocktails and appetizers, attendees can expect to enjoy a varied collection of designs. Furniture from American designers will be found among the works of Percival Lafer of Brazil, antique Khotan rugs from Turkistan, and contemporary designers like Patricia Urquiola. The offerings at Westside Modern will change frequently, with different furnishings arriving directly from Denmark.
“The grand opening is an opportunity to celebrate Westside Modern and support a wonderful cause with prospective and current clients,” said Tonya Beach, owner and curator of Westside Modern. “A lot of people have already stopped by to welcome us to the neighborhood and seem to be thrilled that someone finally rescued this building.”
The space has been transformed into an edited and minimal showroom. Classic and innovative pieces stand out against white walls. An uncluttered and natural arrangement displays each item while allowing for careful contemplation.
“I want people to be inspired by the beauty of objects,” said Beach. “From graphics to architecture to furniture, design is all about the same thing; simple lines creating beauty in space.”
Sad and empty is how Beach described the building that sat vacant for five years until the well-travelled entrepreneur decided to reshape it into Atlanta’s largest collection of Danish modern furniture. Renovating the building took Beach six months and required everything from sheet-rock to plumbing. The holes in the roof have been repaired. Milk weeds no longer have cracks in the floor to grow through.
“We’re not 100% mid-century, nor all Danish, nor exclusively by named designers,” continued Beach. “Our approach encompasses a wider appreciation for extraordinary pieces with prices that fit every budget.”
Conveniently located in Atlanta’s evolving Westside Design District, Westside Modern is the newest reason to rediscover the Westside. Trendy restaurants and multifamily homes are now occupying the area where warehouses once processed rural Georgia’s farming industry. Interior designers, architects, event coordinators, and entertainment producers have helped the area shed its once industrial image. Beach is eager to bring a unique flair to Atlanta’s chic and stylish community.
