43rd Annual Atlanta Symphony Associates Decorators' Show House and Gardens

In 2014, Habachy Designs received a GOLD Award for category "Best Showhouse Interior from ASID, (The American Society of Interior Designers) for the design of this room.

Inspired by exquisitely opulent French architecture, the 2013 Atlanta Symphony Associates’ Decorator’s Show House is designed by the celebrated and highly regarded architect William T. Baker. Within more than 18,000 square feet of space, the house showcases the work of the Southeast’s most talented interior designers. The house is open April 21-May 12, and all proceeds go to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.

Michael Habachy, owner of Habachy Designs, was selected to design the Cigar Lounge, the Vestibule at the bottom of the stairs and the Terrace Level Hall. To create the lounge, he transformed a plain white room into a sultry masculine space inspired by old Hollywood glamour and French Art Deco. As you step inside, you are greeted by the nostalgic sounds of Frank Sinatra—his rich, smoky baritone resonating across the beautiful fixtures and furniture. From the exotic real lion rug resting on the floor, to the century-old cigar boxes, to the royal blue velvet smoking chairs, this room is made for the modern-day James Dean. Michael also premiered a pair of exquisitely made club chairs that he designed specifically for the space. The cube-shaped chairs inspired by classic French modernist, Jean Michel Frank, are wrapped in a mosaic of black suede and leather squares.

The lounge was designed around a breathtaking Baccarat midnight-blue crystal chandelier. It hangs from an etched, smoke grey glass ceiling and adds sensual glamour to the room. Venetian plaster, hand-applied by Les Roberts of ART-tech Finishes, gives the room a polished finish, complete with brass nail head trim that reflects the chandelier’s light. Above the Art Deco fireplace hangs a stunning commissioned painting of a regal stag head, done by Atlanta’s own acclaimed artist Todd Alexander. Framed in silver-toned mirrors, black-and-white prints of Old-Hollywood movie stars and icons of eras past accent the rest of the warm grey walls.

Each glance uncovers thoughtful details and embellishments across the room-- from the custom laser-etched cowhide Habachy designed for the bench, to the exotic Macassar Ebony cocktail table centerpiece. The custom designed built-ins flanking the fireplace feature back lit panels of a rare type of honey Onyx. This sexy and cozy lounge invites you to sit back, light a nice Cuban, pour yourself a glass of scotch, and let the sounds of a simpler time wash over you.
