The Next Cool Thing – Atlanta, GA

Margaret L. Norcott, Allied ASID, Assoc. IIDA of Milieu Design Group created this inspired, current take on the Beverly Hillbillies for “The Next Cool Thing” event hosted in Atlanta in January.  I had no idea that Georgia is now one of the top 5 states in the country for television and movie production, and this 3 day event was geared towards highlighting this important industry.  Interior designers, set designers, and other trade professionals created vignettes that recreated movie and tv sets in an industrial warehouse space, and between the red-carpet treatment, VIP gala and several days of public access over 13,000 people got to “witness creative history”.  Read more about the event, covered by Atlanta Interior Design team Kandric & Kole, and see more photos here.
Margaret’s design featured so many fun details:  the outdoor patio, “Stairway to Nowhere” complete with two-dimensional house dog, astroturf, and we spied the Lorts 220102 Arm Chairs in pink and the 2103/2104 Dining Table.   Visit the Milieu website here for more information about contacting Margaret (she also has a fabulous blog).   
Congrats to Margaret and the Atlanta design community on this great event!
