Roche Bobois bows new digs in Buckhead.

Blogger modular sofa by R. Tapinassi and M. Manzoni, diagonal bookcase by Luigi Gorgoni and Cuba Libre table by Daniel Rode; all by Roche Bobois, prices upon request.

Mod furnishings outpost Roche Bobois has been serving Atlanta’s contemporary design lovers out of its Shops Around Lenox storefront for more than a decade. But just like any interiors mainstay worth its salt, it’s time to pull up stakes and re-imagine a new space. In late February, the retailer moved to a brand-new locale at 333 Buckhead Ave.—the former home of C Lighting. The building is just as contemporary as its new tenants. With a stunning two-story glass facade, the 12,000-square-foot showroom houses all the same iconic lines by greats such as Philippe Bouix and Jean Paul Gaultier (plus some newbies from Eric Gizard!), but with cool upgrades and haute flair. Devised by Jacqueline Hopfer—head of Roche Bobois’ interior architecture and visual merchandising department, and daughter of legendary designer Hans Hopfer—you will find metal staircases, exposed beams, pops of bright color and a dramatic 23-foot wall featuring wallpaper with scenes from Paris. The end result is an edgy, urban space with a hint of French flair you’ll adore to explore.
