Relaxed & Refined Style Abounds Inside Gabby Atlanta Market Showroom

For the Gabby team this may be one of the busiest times of the year as we head into Atlanta Market! With market only a week away, our design team is putting their final touches to nearly 100 new product introductions.

Atlanta Market

At Gabby we are constantly shifting our designs to accommodate the eclectic and transitional style that defines our customers. Gabby’s Atlanta showroom will be filled with nearly 100 new introductions that reflect this with a beautiful mix of designs, a hint of the unexpected and furniture that offers a relaxed and refined look…furniture that mimics the lifestyle our customers live.

Conversation Starters

Dinner discussions and family gatherings flow easily over a round dining table, while a long, rectangular table can play up the room’s length and make it look longer. Regardless of the size, Gabby recognizes the need for beautiful dining tables that are timeless in design, yet transitional in style.

Feminine curves arrange in 4 legs on the Kendleton dining table. Beautifully proportioned, this round dining table is finished in a whitewashed wood with brass metal accents atop the pie patterned table top.

A transitional take on the classic Parsons table, the Sonoma Dining Table has a subtle groove detail on the dark walnut finish top, antique brass accents on the legs, and a rectangular metal stretcher. The mix of wood and brass, adds a formal, yet refined style to any room.

Woven in Time

A major trend that we have seen in the industry is the use of natural materials in and around the home. Rattan offers just that as it brings a relaxed touch of sophistication to any space, adding an extra touch of texture and warmth.

Gabby will introduce over 10 different pieces composed of rattan. Each piece is thoughtfully made special by mixing tone-on-tone colors made from the unique skin of the rattan stalk, attributing to the more natural appearance of each piece. We’ve added an interesting twist to several of the pieces by introducing a mix of leather and rattan, making a bold statement to any space.

 

Great Things in Store

Chest and cabinets are designed for style and function. Big or small, storage pieces add an element of purposeful and functional design to every space. Our designers understand how important these pieces are to everyone’s home, which is why we continue to introduce new styles and designs.

Rustic styling meets refined functionality in the recycled wood and metal Lowell Bar Cabinet. A new design for Gabby, this Bar Cabinet opens to reveal a mirrored interior with wine racks and ample storage space.

This market you will see a shift as we will be introducing a number of larger chest pieces, perfect for any bedroom.

Our new Leona Dresser offers the perfect amount of storage. The beautiful pairing of soft cream, natural sea grass covered drawers, and brass accents makes for a great bedroom dresser.
