The right mix is made with intention. Every one of our pieces is selected to create an assortment that reflects our customer’s lifestyle and their Southern sensibility. We like found pieces with great stories behind them and a mix of industrial materials and traditional forms—the perfect setting for new stories to unfold.
Raw yet refined,
we remember luxury's humble origins.
Our store is steeped in Southern inspiration. From the people who represent Dixon Rye that you will love talking to, the song you hear playing that you will want to add to your collection, the beautiful gift wrap that no one ever throws away, you will love being in our store. We care a great deal for how the brand is messaged through social media, typography, and culture. Stroll around, have a glass of bourbon, pick up the Oxford American, but be careful about getting us started about design; you may end up spending the afternoon at Dixon Rye. We are okay with that.

Southern influences have a tendency to seep in everywhere. I was born in a rural, small Mississippi town and have spent a lot of time throughout different areas of the south, including New Orleans, Birmingham and my current home, Atlanta. The rich heritage of the South informs not only how I design, but how I work with clients-family first, entertaining, outdoor/indoor living, lush greenery, inviting spaces and personal stories reflected in everyday objects. Though rooted in the South, my time in retail allowed me to visit many pockets of the U.S., and my passion for collecting inspiration and connecting with local communities has helped me expand my influences and make new friends that quickly become old ones. I’ve always worked for small, start up or reimagined brands with an entrepreneurial mind-set, most recently with West Elm as Director of Design Education. My interest in helping communities use art and design as a means of strengthening families and neighborhoods has led to various volunteer projects in Haiti and right here in Atlanta.
