P.S. In answer to my own question about which came first. ADAC and AmericasMart have been in Atlanta since the early 1960's, essentially the heart of the Southeastern interior design trade. And since Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport provides access to 80% of the U.S. population within two hours, this makes it an ideal spot for the design trade and the abundance of extrememly talented designers and architects. There is also no denying that a southerner's love of home and entertaining plays a huge part of all that is the Atlanta design world. They didn't coin the phrase "Southern Hospitality" for just any reason.
