Creekstone Cookers was founded in 2004 as a result of my own love and passion for AGA cast iron ranges. I have had the pleasure and fun of cooking with one in my own home, as well as designing memorable kitchens for my clients around their AGAs for the last 22 years. With great food and friends, I hope to demystify these beautiful ranges for my trade colleagues and ultimately, their clients. Voted by the BBC as one of the 3 most iconic design products of the 20th century, the AGA range shares this honor along with the Volkswagon Beetle and the classic Coca Cola bottle. This, in addition to a phenomenal 100 year history and a brand new generation of products, AGAs future is brighter than ever. I hope to pass on my enduring love of these unique and beautiful ranges. I really believe that there are a lot of AGA aficionados out there who just don’t know it yet!-Laurie Lehrich Ample parking behind building.

The design of the physical environments in which humans live, work and play greatly impacts health and wellbeing. Too often, however, design supports unhealthy rather than healthy habits and practices.
Architects, interior designers and urban planners are responding to this problem with active design, an approach to the development of buildings, streets and neighborhoods that makes daily physical activity and healthy foods more accessible and inviting.
Please join us for a discussion of these featuring the following panelists:
• Moderator: Laura Flusche of MODA: Executive Director
• Panelist: Kyle Brooks of Blackcattips: Artist
• Panelist: Dan Hourigan of Midtown Alliance: Director of Transportation and Sustainability
• Panelist: Garnie Nygren of Serenbe: Director of Operations
• Panelist: Basak Alkan of Perkins+Will: Urban Designer
This event is FREE and open to the public, but registration is required.
Design for Healthy Living, on view at MODA until August 9, 2015, explores the impact of the built environment on human health and presents specific design strategies that are used to promote routine physical activity and healthy living.
The exhibition provides real-world examples from Atlanta and beyond that demonstrate these design strategies in use and highlight the impact that design is making on the health and well-being of communities.
Among the Atlanta projects featured in the exhibition are the Atlanta BeltLine, Serenbe, Lee Street Re-Design, Wheat Street Garden, and others.
This highly interactive exhibition — which features an installation by artist and designer Tristan Al-Haddad of Formations Studio — will encourage participation and dialogue as visitors consider the spaces they use each day and how these spaces can be used to improve their health and well-being

Switching It Up
Switch Modern has relocated and expanded. The new showroom, nearly six times larger, is just a stone’s throw away at 670 14th Street. The proprietors Roy Otwell and Doug Henderson have their service-oriented approach and the e-commerce arm to thank for keeping it top-of-mind for modern furnishings. Otwell credits shopper support to this anomalous growth, noting, “It’s just another sign that Atlanta has joined the ranks of cosmopolitan world cities.” He and Henderson have met ardent demand with more than 80 contemporary lines, ranging from from edgy new arrivals like MDF Italia, Walter Knoll, and Paola Lenti, to contemporary classics including Flexform, Poltrona Frau, and Edra. Also notable are shop-in-shops for Alessi, Poliform/Varenna, and Kartell; an expanded array of tabletop accouterments; and a display for outdoor furnishings from B&B Italia Outdoor, RODA, and Gandia Blasco.

About the Host:
Born in London to a British father and German mother, Martin Nash was instilled with an appreciative aesthetic while being raised in Atlanta. Nash holds an Interior Design degree from the Art Institute of Atlanta, and after working for premier ADAC showrooms over the past 16 years, including Jerry Pair and Ainsworth Noah, Martin, along with best friend and business partner, designer Dee Simmons, launched the Martin Nash showroom in May, 2013.
Bringing legendary furniture lines such as William Switzer and Charles Pollock with him, Martin Nash seeks and successfully obtains new modern luxury brands like Fuse Lighting, Chista and Interior Crafts. Rounding out the Martin Nash collection with Chip Cheatham's Chip + Company, this eclectic mix of furniture, lighting and curated objects creates a vibe that is "Urban, Organic and Groovy!"
Nash's vision to bring a new, fresh energy to ADAC is highlighted by twenty feet of Graffiti mural depicting the Atlanta cityscape which lights up the main ADAC atrium. This bold statement of unexpected and revolutionary design has changed the dynamics of ADAC and the surrounding design community.
