lasting impact

FOR TWO YEARS, we have devoted a column each month to exploring the impact of Atlanta’s design-industry heavy-hitters. From nationally celebrated architects and interior designers to renowned antiques dealers and showroom owners, these individuals have collectively carried the torch through the decades as they not only put our city on the map, but also helped Atlanta stake its claim as the stalwart of the South. In 2018 alone, we have lost a few creative geniuses: the legendary decorator Dan Carithers; the world-class architect John C. Portman Jr., and the pioneering retail wonder Beverly Bremer. This month, columnist Suzanna Hamilton honors their legacies (page 17), and we also take a moment to celebrate Suzanne Cox of the antiques showroom The Gables as she ushers in 40 years in the business (page…

everlasting legacies

DAN CARITHERSFONDLY REFERRED TO AS “DAPPER DAN,” Dan Carithers was renowned for entertaining, and his layered, elegant interiors remain relevant today. “Dan wanted everything to be pretty, so his designs were classic and timeless,” says interior designer Judy Bentley, Carithers’ colleague for more than a decade.After starting his career at venerable Rich’s Department Store, Carithers became known for his ability to educate clients about interior design, antiques and decorative arts while making the process accessible. “Dan loved to shop; it didn’t matter for what or where he was, he could pick out something fabulous and he made the process fun,” says Bentley.Carithers was as astute at design and business as he was charming and gregarious.

the unparalleled suzanne cox

Pioneering RootsWhen Suzanne Cox opened The Gables in 1978 at a “little green Victorian house” on Piedmont Road, it was largely a high-end gift store with a few antiques, wicker pieces and baskets. But a passion for porcelain and Country French antiques quickly changed her focus.A pioneer in her own right, Cox journeyed to Communist China after it opened up to the world, where she discovered, and subsequently imported, large quantities of antique Chinese porcelain. In addition to capturing the attention of local decorators with her unique finds, one particular high-end hotel, the Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead, also took note, purchasing much of her antique porcelain collection for its dining room. Country French remained the store’s bread and butter, which Cox embraced along with equally respected contemporaries such as Tom Hayes & Associates, Dotty…
