Winton Noah, Steve and Brooke Gianetti, Hal Ainsworth

Forty years ago, I met the wonderful team of Hal Ainsworth and Winton Noah...who back then, had a small shop on Peachtree Street, with housewares and table top linens...a boutique if you will, with le bon gout ...and while all these years later, the dynamic duo has now sold the ADAC showrooms they created, after closing the little shop~ they're still forging ahead and enjoying life. 
Not long after they moved into the decorative arts center, my mother and I ventured there to buy some things for our house in North Carolina.  My old friend, Nicholas, also worked there at that time, around 1976 or so.   
Here they are posing with Brooke and Steve, of Velvet and Linen (blog) and Patina Farm.  Enjoy!  DF *****
