Sam Flax South outfits artists and designers with supplies and furniture from top industry brands such as Herman Miller, Humanscale, and Steelcase to produce masterpieces on any scale. Easels grip canvases as painters blanket them in polychromatic oils and acrylics, just as drafting tables, rulers, and protractors help architects draft the blueprint for the first home built entirely of discarded totem poles. Guests can leaf through paper products and readymade gifts including delicate cards, journals, and calendars. Treasured prints also find displayable homes in Sam Flax’s custom-framing department, where artisans design hangable enclosures that accentuate a picture with a contrasting mat color or an oversize neon arrow that points directly to the image. The in-house framing center applies acid-free matting and seals art in airtight materials to preserve pieces.

Mia Canada has an eye for style that goes way beyond tying the perfect bow. Once upon a time, Mia coordinated events and designed her own stationary. Eventually, her passion for fashion and interior design inspired her to channel her talents into an avenue for stylistic flair that had been overlooked: gift design.
As head gift wrapper at That’s a Wrap!, Mia makes sure each box’s exterior mirrors the care that went into selecting its contents. She travels to homes or workplaces, and customers trek to pop-up locations in Atlanta malls where she and her staff work their magic. From the Premier Collection’s preconceived designs with classic papers and satin ribbons to the Mia Line’s completely personalized looks—created from unique paper, velvet, organza, or even leather—each of their masterpieces tells a story.
