The first seeds were sown in 1970, but the story of Smith-Gilbert Gardens actually starts almost 150 years ago. Though the 16 acres of emerald landscape features wooded paths, evocative sculptures, and more than 3,000 species of plants, the jewel in the garden's crown is the Hiram Butler House, an Italianate and Greek Revival blend built by a celebrated 19th century railway man. Today, the house is just one of many points of interest on the estate. An explosion of color greets visitors to the Perennial Garden, where daffodils, bearded lilies, and vivid asters mingle together and sometimes sing a capella. The conifer garden features small and slow-growing bushes and trees that thrive in the Southeastern United States, while the Japanese Maple Grove features more than 30 varieties of this ornamental tree. Other must-see spots include the Cedar Field and Rose Garden, where a single sylvan sentry stands guard over a grassy expanse, and the Bonsai Garden, one of the only gardens of its kind in Georgia.
Father-and-son team Robert and Fred Lee worked as homebuilders for years before going into business selling lights in 1965, so they knew how quickly something impressive could rise from a humble foundation. Sure enough, Lee Lighting, their small family company, grew to include a vast online retail shop and one of the largest lighting dealers in Texas. They've even purchased Savoy, a company that designs fixtures to bring cheer to dining rooms and make rooms full of ventriloquist dummies less terrifying.
Lee Lighting stocks shelves with a diverse selection of indoor lamps from brands including ELK Lighting, Quoizel, and Hudson Valley. Staffers certified by the American Lighting Association move beneath the dazzling crystal sprays and faux candles of chandeliers. They suggest outdoor lighting to transform backyards into regal terraces. They also stay abreast of lighting trends to help patrons select lights that will stay in style.
From its roots as a Georgian stained-glass manufacturer in 1977, the now international Armstrong Glass Company has slowly added more and more design elements to its inventory—from textured to fused to cabinet to iridescent glass. Each of Armstrong's handcrafted products differs slightly in coloring as it takes shape. This lends individuality to every piece, even if they’re identically designed. The company tackles custom projects with ease, such as tabletops, glass sinks, room dividers, and houses for people who don’t throw stones.
