Remains Lighting has established a beachhead in Atlanta.
I found the Jim Thompson Thai Silk company through Hutton Wilkinson of Tony Duquette, Inc. Hutton had released a large collection of Duquette designs with Jim Thompson and when we launched our line of Duquette fixtures they graciously lent us the gorgeous fabrics which we used to turn the garden of our 59th St. showroom into a wild fantasy tent for the opening party. I think I might even have a yard or two that I’ve yet to return… hmm.
Well, now Jim Thompson is having their own launch party. Spearheaded by Chad Holman, they took a massive space in the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center, designed for them by the Rockwell Group, asked a few key makers to join them, and have just opened their doors. The official launch is March 27.
We are over the moon with the opportunity to join them, and particularly, to join them in their home turf of Atlanta. When Chad called about his plans, the location, and the other companies involved, we said unhesitatingly “Yes”. I think we made the deal on that first phone call.
