La Maison Rouge was created in 1995 as the brainchild of George and Judy Lee with Skip Engelbrecht. Hidden in the heart of Paris on Ponce, which has held its place as a premier retail destination in midtown Atlanta for over 30 years. The ornate and opulent furnishings have been gathered from buying trips overseas, from estates here in Georgia, and we are especially honored to have some pieces from the home of Coretta Scott and Dr. Martin Luther King. Over the last 25 years we have hosted innumerable celebrations, fundraisers, and shows. On Thanksgiving eve, 2019, on the 100 year of the building’s history, a fire erupted in Paris on Ponce. The cause is unknown, and while the damage was extensive, much of the furnishings and the heart of La Maison Rouge survived. While we never thought that we could find anything as special as our home in Midtown, we somehow did!
After a three year residency at the Healey Building in Downtown Atlanta, we have found our forever home at the iconic Atlanta Underground! Every Atlanta native has a memory relating to the Underground, and after more than 20 years of lying dormant, the underground complex built within the original train and city viaducts is having a grand resurgence with some of the biggest business partnerships in the city. We are honored to be a part of it all.
