Buzzi Shop

From its catchy name to its curated home décor and furniture, BuzziBoutique is building buzz in Atlanta’s Westside design district.

The shop: With its white walls, white hardwood floors and gallery-like feel, BuzziBoutique offers original and unexpected home décor, furnishings and gifts, including products from its parent company (BuzziSpace) as well as vintage and new pieces from Europe.

The company & background: BuzziBoutique is the first U.S. store opened by BuzziSpace, a furniture and acoustic products manufacturer in Belgium. The founders are Steve Symons and Tom Van Dessel. Symons, based in Antwerp, sources the shop’s vintage pieces from all over Europe. Van Dessel heads the U.S. headquarters in High Point, NC, where many of the BuzziSpace products are made.

Shop manager: Atlanta resident Daniel Monier (below), who joined BuzziSpace three years ago as director of North American Sales. He heads up BuzziBoutique, which opened in November.Daniel Head

– Society linens ($155 to $790) from Lecco, a renowned textile town in Italy. The collection is both luxurious and relaxed. Each season, the company introduces a new complementary color. The collection includes sheets, duvets, pillowcases, throws and napkins.
