On Tuesday, May 14th, with Southern flair, Luxe celebrated the inaugural launch of the Luxe Southeast edition with a kickoff party at Regent Cocktail Club, overlooking iconic Peachtree Road above The Shops Buckhead Atlanta. It was a magical evening with sweeping skyline views, a dazzling sunset and a local artist playing acoustic guitar.
Luxe welcomed an esteemed list of attendees, including Don Easterling, Nina Nash, Bobby McAlpine, Ryan Hughes, Beth Webb, Robert Brown, Melanie Millner and Susan Ferrier.
Luxe was thrilled to celebrate this new Southeast edition with the local design community and the support of their esteemed sponsorship partners, Walker Zanger and O. Henry House. Pamela Jaccarino, VP, editor in chief, applauded her editorial and art team and Southeast homes editor Kate Abney for producing such a stunning premier issue. “Luxe Southeast brings a fresh design voice to the region, with hyper-local content that captures chic, contemporary Southern style,” says Jaccarino.
Group publisher Katie Brockman added, “Southeast homes editor Kate Abney and Sibyl de St. Aubin, sales director, joined forces to take this new growing design market by storm. They are forging strong connections and building the Luxe brand throughout the Southeast with markets covering Atlanta, Nashville, Charlotte, Charleston and Birmingham. The Luxe brand is resonating in a powerful way across the country.”
Luxe continued the festivities with a Nashville launch event at the end of May, at the tallest residential building in Tennessee, 505, designed in part by Frank Ponterio. They plan future celebrations of the taste of Southern charm in upcoming Luxe Southeast markets.
