The Cathedral Antiques Show is the South's favorite festival of antiques and decorative arts, and a fixture on Atlanta's charity social scene, now returning for its 49th year!
Carson Kressley and Thom Filicia, straight from Bravo's hit show, Get a Room with Carson and Thom, bring their considerable talents in design and humor to kick off our daily Lecture Series. Bronson van Wyck discusses and signs his new book, Born to Party, Forced to Work: 21st Century Hospitality. Putnam & Putnam demonstrate their techniques and sign copies of their book, Flower Color Guide, and act as judges when savvy arrangers go head-to-head in our popular Iron Floral Competition. Atlanta's own, architect Stan Dixon and designer Jackye Lanham, present their collaboration on her magnificent Kiawah Island home in their Story of a House. Joseph P. Brady, noted Atlanta silver historian, lecturer, author, and professional appraiser and consultant, presents From Shop to Manufactory: American Silver and the Industrial Revolution.
The grand Cathedral Tour of Homes opens the doors to 5 of Atlanta's most extraordinary private homes in Buckhead and North Atlanta that showcase the finest in architecture, interior design, and timeless style. The Young Collectors Home Tour celebrates bold design in 3 of Buckhead's more intimate spaces designed by some of Atlanta's best and brightest young interior decorators and architects.
