Atlanta is the mecca of the home decorating industry. Whether it’s AmericasMart, ADAC, Bennett Street or shops on the Westside and Buckhead, Atlanta is the place to go for rugs, furniture, lighting and whatever makes your house a home.
Miami Circle was one of the first enclaves of small boutiques where you could find that just-right touch for your home. Originally, it was a small group of antique shops but it has since blossomed into a top resource for both the interior design and retail customer. With more than 60 showrooms, Miami Circle -- located in south Buckhead off Piedmont Road -- is the place to go for all home decor needs, as well as beauty, apparel, art, home theater and audio, flooring, jewelry and fitness. It also boasts one of Atlanta’s favorite restaurants. Miami Circle shops cater to both consumers and trade professionals.
