mad about metal

November 11, 2015

After a decade working in interior design, Lucy Smith found a new source of inspiration in a century-old metal fabrication shop.

The company: Lucy Smith Designs was founded in 2009 in Anniston. The Alabama-based company manufactures a modern line of metal furniture and accessories (like mirrors) on site, one piece at a time. Many of the pieces are available in a variety of sizes, details and finishes.

The founder & designer: Smith grew up in Birmingham and graduated from University of Alabama. She moved to Atlanta where she met her husband and worked for a couple of different design firms in entry level positions. The couple lived in Buckhead for a few years, before moving to Anniston to grow the family steel business. At the metal shop, she became fascinated with the industrial pieces and scrap yard. She started sketching and studying before designing some pieces. “I never expected it to take off,” she said.

What’s popular: The sleek Jax coffee table ($2,150).

Other favorites: Accent tables ($625 and up) in many sizes and options.

Claim to fame: Being featured in the talent section of Elle Décor magazine. Also, our “Vogue” side table ended up on TV’s “Scandal.”

What’s new: More custom fire screens.

Where to buy: In Atlanta, at Holland & Company ( and MacRae ( at the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center (ADAC). For information:
