On Our Turf: Jaipur at the Atlanta Market

By: Shelby Adamson & Danielle Clockel

Last week the Balance Design team took a much deserved trip to the Atlanta Market at AmericasMart to get inspired–and boy were we ever! One of our favorites was Jaipur Living, a vendor we love to source from, and touring their incredible showroom was a real treat.

Just look at this beautiful Kazak-style rug. Jaipur’s diversity in style is unmatched.

How could this beautifully worn medallion rug get better? How about a coordinating pillow?

The displays were incredible. Rugs were artfully paired with pillows, textiles, and carvings.

I mean, we were speechless.

We’ve been huge fans of Jaipur Living for a while now, but finally getting to meet the team at the showroom really gave us a new level of appreciation for the company. Plus, we were surrounded by incredible rugs!

Krog Street Market

By: Danielle Cornely

In November of last year, Krog Street Market opened its doors to a hungry Atlanta community ready for a new experience. The market follows in the footsteps of pioneers like the Chelsea Market in New York and the Sweet Auburn Curb Market here in Atlanta, combining dining with community and historical preservation. The result is a beautiful, inspiring gathering place where you can peruse local goods in market stalls before taking in a meal from one of the many global-inspired food vendors.

Keeping an industrial but still inviting feel with metal and wood, the seating areas in the market encourage interaction and conversation. Let’s get a better look at that counter lighting in the background:

Curved glass pendants that resemble the cake stands below them? Genius. And beautiful.

A mesmerizing wall of what looks like reclaimed wood resides by one of the market’s entrances. It’s okay to stare.

Fred’s Meat and Bread appreciates the power of creative product display. You have our attention.

This table at The Cockentrice is big enough for friends and family, but still feels intimate. We love the personal touch of open shelving made from wood and industrial piping. (Could those be cookbooks on the shelves?)

It’s safe to say Krog Street Market is a feast for the eyes as well as the belly. Genuinely delicious food, talented artisans, and a community atmosphere have us craving another visit SOON. We can’t wait to see the market grow and flourish!
