Buckhead’s Best Boutiques

Buckhead is known for its three large shopping centers – Lenox Square, Phipps Plaza and Buckhead Village District but the true treasures lie in its smaller shops and boutiques!

There’s just something so unique and welcoming about shopping local. Smaller shops, family-owned stores and quaint boutiques always steal our hearts, and they somehow always seem to have just what we’re looking for! 

Here are some of our favorite Buckhead Gift Shops and Boutiques.

Meet Thomas Puckett, Thomas Puckett Designs

New York designer Thomas Puckett grew up in Columbus, GA and has deep roots in the South. Thomas has received acclaim for his residential, landscape and commercial design as well as multiple Houzz awards and consistent 5-star ratings from his diverse clients.

What inspired you to open Thomas Puckett Designs?
Years ago, good friends purchased the Hamptons home of a Real Housewives of New York – Kelly Bensimon. Despite the fancy address, it needed a complete rehaul.  When they asked for my help, I thought they wanted me to choose a paint color or a sofa. After some confusing conversations they said, “Thomas, you don’t get it, we want you to design the entire house.” A lightbulb went off in my head and I realized that I could have a legit interior and landscape design business. I’d always helped my mother who has a design business of her own, designed my own interiors and gardens and had been helping friends with theirs. So even though it was so obvious, I never thought of it until then. That’s what friends are for, and I’ll forever be grateful to them. My partner Chip Whitman is the COO who deals with the endless challenges of invoicing, billing, shipping, receiving and all the operational hurdles that clients never see. Without him, this business would never run successfully. Clients appreciate Chip’s skills as much as my designs. Continue reading “Meet Thomas Puckett, Thomas Puckett Designs” »
