The Antiques & Garden Show of Nashville

If you love antiques shows, The Antiques & Garden Show of Nashville is among the largest events of its kind in the country.

The theme for this year's annual event was “Home is the Tapestry of Your Life." The three-day affair featured more than 150-dealers of fine antiques and art, as well as horticultural exhibitors, and some of the most renowned design, landscape, and architectural speakers in the world. At least 16-thousand visitors walked through the many booths and displays. At this show, there was also a special auction of two chicken coops - one designed by me, and the other by my friend, Christopher Spitzmiller. The coops were built by Cook Builders, LLC in a space designed by Duke Design Group in collaboration with James Dunn of Vintage Millworks. It was a fun project and a great cause - all proceeds from the show benefit Cheekwood Estate & Gardens and the Economic Club of Nashville (ECON). Although I was not able to attend the event, my special projects producer, Judy Morris, went down to see how it all went.

Here are some photos, enjoy. And be sure to see more of my chicken coop on an upcoming episode of "Martha Gardens" on Roku.
