HAWTHORNE HOUSE is a design gallery of bespoke lighting, fine furnishings, and decorative statements for residential and commercial applications. Situated in a historic home on Milledge Avenue in Athens, Georgia, we have over a decade in the industry, presenting collections of notable lines that we trust and love. Founded in 2003 by designer Lisa Ellis, Hawthorne House has grown from a firm specializing in furniture restoration, antiques, and art to a firm that melds the best of the past with innovative and modern design concepts. We work with individuals, decorators, interior designers, architects, and builders to create your ideal space.

With the 2015 premiere of our new Visual Comfort and Co. Lighting Gallery, we now offer over 1,200 square feet of space to showcase designs by Aerin Lauder, Alexa Hampton, Thomas, O’Brien, Suzanne Kasler, and the Studio Collection.

Our Furnishings Gallery encompasses distinct brands such as Hickory Chair, Lee Industries, and Century Furniture.  Here we also present an array of antiques, art, and special artisanal pieces.

The Decorating Gallery is a curated collection of fabrics, wallpapers, and floor coverings by the likes of Lee Sofa, Cole & Son, and Brunschwig & Fils as well as contemporary tastemakers such as Hable Construction, Katie Leede, and Clay McLaurin.
