Dixon Rye, a home furnishings shop in the Westside Design District of Atlanta, opened in October 2015. Their mantra is ‘Buy better, fewer things’, and the carefully curated assortment reinforces this. Located in a former iron foundry, the industrial architecture is a stunning framework for the shop. The interesting product mix ranges from artisanal French ceramics by Astier de Villatte, to Hudson Valley, NY handcrafted furniture by Fern, to the Dixon Rye custom designed furniture.
Bradley Odom was born and raised in the south. The rich heritage of the south is combined with Bradley’s extensive design and retail experience with major national brands such as J Crew and West Elm, resulting in a keen understanding of southern sensibility and lifestyle. Opening Dixon Rye allows him to pursue his passions for retail and product design. He enjoys creating brands and has paid great attention to all the details, like the name plate embedded in the concrete of the doorway, the gift wrap, the music played in the shop, and the business cards. Bradley is thrilled to have produced his own line of furniture for Dixon Rye, continuing the family tradition, as his grandfather was an upholsterer. An interior design graduate from Savannah College of Art and Design, he is looking forward to developing the interior design services of Dixon Rye.
On Collecting Books
Bradley believes one can never have too many books. One of his all time favorites inspired the naming of Dixon Rye.
“I also usually find unique, one of a kind books on my travels and make them work in my home or use them as inspiration for a project.”
