Design ADAC

Thousands of guests, from designers to design enthusiasts, gathered at Design ADAC for three days to explore the fusing of art forms. Attendees celebrated showroom grand openings, the Southeast Designers and Architect of the Year Awards, fascinating discussions with top industry professionals, including designers Bunny Williams, Ashley Whittaker, Peter Dunham, and Markham Roberts, and more.

There were also new experiences for attendees with interactive vignettes throughout the Center—ranging from elegant to unexpected. Attendees had the opportunity to gather with their friends, snap some photos with creative designs, and share their favorite pieces of Spring Market across social media.

“This year’s Design ADAC was a triumphant success,” said Katie Miner, general manager for the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center. “It was so inspiring seeing the design community come together to celebrate, grow, and have fun with each other.”
