Atlanta Decorative Arts Center (ADAC) will open its doors to the public beginning Oct. 1. To mark the change, there will be two weeks of events and special programming at the 550,000 square foot interior design product showroom facility in Buckhead, will open its doors to the community on Monday, October 1.

A resource to the design community for more than 50 years, ADAC will bring to light the exceptional products their showrooms have to offer to the city.

“Until now, only licensed design professionals have been able to access and take advantage of our showroom facility,” said Katie Belveal, ADAC General Manager. “By giving a peek behind our curtain, if you will, more design enthusiasts will be able to experience ADAC and create that lifestyle at home or elsewhere.”

Discover ADAC will consist of two weeks of events designed to educate guests on the showrooms, products and process of working with a design professional. Events include lifestyle panel discussions with Atlanta tastemakers, designer presentations and meet-and-greets, book signings, individual showroom activities, and “ADAC – Behind the Windows.” There will also be a grand opening cocktail party on Thursday, Oct. 4. Events will continue in November and will be announced soon.

Whether planning to design a home or office space, or just looking to get inspired, guests can visit ADAC and browse the 1,200 product lines represented in its showrooms, many of which are exclusive to ADAC. The on-site offices of American Society of Interior Designers and International Interior Design Association are available to all visitors who are seeking the expertise of a design professional.
