Miami Circle: Atlanta’s Go-To Enclave for Home Decor

Atlanta is the mecca of the home decorating industry. Whether it’s AmericasMart, ADAC, Bennett Street or shops on the Westside and Buckhead, Atlanta is the place to go for rugs, furniture, lighting and whatever makes your house a home.

Miami Circle, off Piedmont Road in Buckhead, was one of the first enclaves of small boutiques where you could find that just-right touch for your home. Originally, it was a small group of antique shops but it has since blossomed into a top resource for both the interior design and retail customer. It doesn’t matter if you are a consumer or trade professional,  Miami Circle shops cater to both and give you exactly what you need for your house or business.

With more than 60 showrooms, Miami Circle is the place to go for all home decor needs, as well as beauty, apparel, art, home theater and audio, flooring, jewelry and fitness — actually, just about anything. For those who don’t want to leave Miami Circle after a day of shopping (we totally understand), have a nice dinner at one of Atlanta’s favorite restaurants, Eclipse de Luna, and then spend the evening bowling and playing other games as well as enjoying craft cocktails at The Painted Pin.
