Since 2004, Pieces — a charming home store in the Buckhead district of Atlanta — has been offering a carefully curated mix of (mostly) vintage items that have been reupholstered, repainted, and reworked into one-of-a-kind, well, pieces. Carrying everything from chandeliers to tables and cabinets, designer and proprietor Lee Kleinhelter wanted to find a happy medium market for those who don't want to shell out major bucks for pricey antiques, but also don't want to settle for IKEA (not that there's anything wrong with a little IKEA).Indeed, that seems like a large gap to fill, but her expertise in the industry and keen eye for crisp, imaginative, and sleek home style has helped this Southern business woman meet her goals. Along with her professional partner-in-crime and personal partner-in-life, her husband Kevin Kleinhelter of K2 Construction, the two have also managed to collaborate on building houses from the inside out. In an awesome and creative power coupling, he constructs and she designs — with the gorgeous selects from Pieces, of course. Without taking a trip down South just yet (although her store is definitely worth the hike), we were able to get a peek at this charming home-decor staple that may not necessarily be "big city," but is packed with BIG style and inspiration for any interior. Click through for all the snaps of Lee's Atlanta shop. (Pinners get ready, these pics may need a place on your boards).
