ATL Call-Out: PierceMartin
While the weather might be changing, and summer is slipping away, it doesn’t mean you can’t plan outdoor renovations for your patio or your deck. Especially since, in Atlanta, warm weather seems to stick around longer and longer with each passing year. So, it’s a good time to start planning ahead by hiring that decorator or architect to shape your outdoor space. PierceMartin, a showroom for-the-trade-only, should be your first stop.
A professional resource for wicker, iron, and rattan furniture, as well as Pacific Rim finds and antiques, PierceMartin’s philosophy is rooted in three simple words: “Design, refine, repeat.” It’s a mantra created by Alan (Chip) D. Cheatham, president and creative director of the Atlanta-based PierceMartin headquarters. Cheatham believes stylish living is “a blending of classic furnishings with exotic accent treasures” and PierceMartin provides their “stylish living” concept with services like custom-finishing and upholstery.
PierceMartin continues to move with the times by offering an “All Weather” collection, using natural, sustainable materials such as bamboo. They also have a new line called “PM4U” that is exclusively available online for the general consumer. We were intrigued by all these concepts, so we took a look at their online showroom and found a few things we’d ask our decorator to snatch up in an instant.
First, we found these Malaysian Arm chairs in naturally distressed rattan with cathedral style backs. We thought the chairs’ red and yellow striped cushions were perfect colors to invigorate any patio.
We also loved the PierceMartin classic, “Chelsea Loveseat” and were once again spellbound by the stripes in bright blue and white, both colors highlighting the naturally aged rattan. It’s got a nautical feel that’s not over the top.
And their “Wood Garden Stool” from their “PM4U” line we thought would make an adorable accent to any space, indoor or outdoor, and comes in a variety of color finishes (we loved the forest green finish!).
Look forward to this fall or next spring and summer spent under the sun (or shade) on your newly furnished outdoor space. You might even find yourself repeating the phrase, “Design, refine, repeat.”
