Atlanta Decorative Arts Center (ADAC) has announced it will open its doors to the community beginning this October. By opening to a larger audience, ADAC hopes to bring to light the benefits of working with professional interior designers.

“Until now, only licensed design professionals have been able to access and take advantage of our showroom facility,” said Katie Belveal, ADAC General Manager. “By giving a peek behind our curtain, if you will, more design enthusiasts will be able to experience ADAC and create that lifestyle at home or elsewhere.”

The change will be marked by two weeks of events and special programming, known as Discover ADAC. It aims to educate guests on the showrooms, products and process of working with a design professional.  Events include lifestyle panel discussions with Atlanta tastemakers, designer presentations and meet-and-greets, book signings, individual showroom activities, and “ADAC – Behind the Windows.” There will also be a grand opening cocktail party on Thursday, October 4, co-sponsored by Atlanta Magazine and crafted by Tony Conway of Legendary Events. The excitement continues in November with soon-to-be-announced events and partnerships. A full calendar of events is available at www.adacatlanta.com/events.
