About Our Company

2018 marks our 30th year in business. This anniversary is very special to us, as we reflect on all those who have made us a success in a competitive industry over the last three decades. We are a diverse mix of people who work together and take pride in our work, but this wouldn’t be the case were it not for the spirit the Currey family instilled into the weave of our company, which is still maintained by our leadership today.
Who We Are
Though we are known today for our lighting and furniture, we began our existence as a purveyor of historic garden furnishings in 1988 when Robert and Suzanne Currey founded Garden Source Furnishings. You might say our founding began when a small boy set up his mother’s ironing board in a closet under the stairs, raided the pantry and began selling its contents to his mom. This budding entrepreneur, Robert B. Currey, admits, “I never imagined that I was going to do anything else but be in the store business.”
There is a common thread that runs through our entire history, and that is the spirit of creativity
Being a retailer has captured Robert’s fascination ever since, a passion shared by his wife Suzanne and our current CEO Brownlee Currey. What began as a party of two is now a vibrant business that employs approximately 550 professionals spread around the globe—from our headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, to Currey International in the Philippines, India and China; and our International Sales Office in Hong Kong.
There is a common thread that runs through our entire history, and that is the spirit of creativity. The use of natural materials, attention to details, time-honored craftsmanship and product designs influenced by authenticity, design history and timely trends are all part of the creative process at Currey & Company.
What We Do
We are known for our lighting products, such as chandeliers, wall sconces, table and floor lamps and outdoor lighting. In the last decade, however, we have added extensive lines of furniture, upholstery and accessories as meaningful parts of our collection. In doing so, we now offer a true a floor-to-ceiling shopping experience to our customers.
Our original design work brings us immense pride.
