Our History

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!

Our new home, at the Healey Building, is on the national register of historic places. Built in 1913, it is an incredible neo-gothic marble building with a gorgeous entrance rotunda that we have available for use in addition to our new space. The new space is almost double the size of our previous so we now have a larger capacity and more availability for smaller events as well. In addition, we are no longer relegated to having only evening events. We now can provide events at all hours!  If you enjoyed our previous location in Midtown you are going to fall in love with our new home.
