Atlanta designers Hal Ainsworth and Winton Noah of Ainsworth-Noah & Associates, Inc. will be recognized at the 2015 Home for the Holidays Designer Showhouse in Atlanta, which is presented by Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles magazine. The design partners, who are behind the region’s largest independent showroom, will be celebrated at the showhouse’s kickoff cocktail party, themed “Moonlight & Mistletoe,” on November 19.
Ainsworth and Noah opened the two shops Horse of a Different Color and Wicker Horse in Atlanta in the 1970s, and by 1979, opened Ainsworth-Noah & Associates, with an 800-square-foot showroom at ADAC, where they sold wicker furniture, fabric and a small collection of antiques. Today, they operate a 42,000-square-foot store, selling high-end furniture, lighting, fabric and other products.
As Gina Christman, publisher of Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles, shares with EAL: “There simply could not be a more fitting way to kick off our designer showhouse this holiday season than to honor the incredible design duo that is Hal Ainsworth and Winton Noah, longtime champions of the Atlanta design community and the brains behind one of the oldest showrooms at ADAC, as this year’s Home for the Holidays honorees. Hal and Winton are among the most trusted design resources in the nation, and we are fortunate that they call Atlanta their home. We are proud to honor them this holiday season.”
The Home for the Holidays Designer Showhouse is presented by White Oak Development with architecture firm Harrison Design and builder Sheehan Built Homes. The participating designers include Barbara Westbrook, Robert Brown, James Wheeler, Chris Holt, Jessica Bradley and others. It will be open to the public November 20 through December 13. Learn more.
