Home tour highlight of Design Is Human Week
By Collin Kelley
Modern Atlanta (MA) will host the 6th annual Design is Human Week and Home Tour June 1-9 celebrating international design excellence from the U.S., Europe, Asia and Africa.
Founded six years ago by Bernard McCoy and Elayne DeLeo, MA continues to grow in scope. “Bernard and I are thrilled that MA has grown from its first Modern Home tour to what it has become today – a week long series of events featuring talks, panel discussions, product launches and more,” DeLeo said.
