easoned designers and co-owners of Huff Harrington Home, Ann Huff and Meg Harrington spent the last part of 2016 scouting French fairs and expositions to curate their winter collection, just in time to stock the boutique’s new location on Roswell Road near Flip Burger. They went on the hunt all around central and southern France to find unique antiques that reflect their favorite French saying: “L’un fait chanter l’autre,” which means “one makes the other sing.” They found these items by scouring exposition halls built in the 1960s, perusing dusty bins before sunrise and venturing to Paris's famed Les Puces flea market where they also took time to indulge in the open Champagne bar. The antique connoisseurs let their hearts take the lead when scouting for treasures. “When we see something that catches our eye, we call it that ‘ooh la la’ moment,’” Huff says. “One of us scouts while the other writes the tickets, and then we switch so the eyes stay fresh.” The design duo says 2017 is all about

The store’s 2017 winter selection offers a lighter look and feel, including a refurbished Louis XV table and ocean-blue glass siphons. Shoppers will also find reduced prices from the 2016 Christmas collection. n
