According to a press release, Atlanta designer and manufacturer Mark Sage will open BOBO Intriguing Objects, his first-ever direct-to-consumer retail furnishing shop. Additionally, Atlanta-based nail salon Les Mains Nail Bar will open its flagship salon, owned by Linda Vo. Both businesses will operate in the Makers Building

“The addition of BOBO Intriguing Objects’ newest concept represents our goal of continuing the Upper Westside’s tradition of high-quality design,” Mindy Selig, senior vice president of retail leasing, said in the release. “Alongside BOBO, Les Mains Nail Bar is known as the best in class in Atlanta, a perfect fit for our project. At The Works, we are transforming 20th-century era warehouses into a home for creative makers and artists who can bring their unique goods and services to the community, and BOBO and Les Mains are emblematic of that vision.”

Sage previously occupied the entire Makers Building, where he sold his custom furniture to the design trade. Opening in late 2020, the new 6,965-square-foot space will sell a mix of antiques, Sage’s furniture, international gifts, and a bespoke candle bar. 

“BOBO has been part of this community for 15 years, and it’s so fulfilling to see the true vision of my friend Scott Selig brought to life at The Works,” Sage said. “As we enter a new era of BOBO on the Upper Westside, we are inspired by The Works’ efforts to reimagine this historic industrial site for the next generation of design enthusiasts.”

Meanwhile, Les Mains, meaning “the hands” in French, will offer nail art as well as manicures and pedicures. The fourth of Vo’s Les Mains salons, this 3,243-square-foot space will open in early 2021.

“As we continue to build on the following and support we’ve received since first launching Les Mains Nail Bar in 2017, we are thrilled to open at The Works,” said Vo. “We look forward to establishing a home on the Upper Westside and planting roots in this growing community.”

The Works has already announced a wide array of retail and restaurant tenants including Scofflaw Brewing Co., Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q, and food hall Chattahoochee Food Works

Other tenants include Adelina Social Goods, and Babakabab and TydeTade Kitchen, the first two known vendors for the food hall.

  1. Many years ago I had the pleasure of visiting BOBO’s warehouse.
    It was a huge place with amazing antiques and curiosities from around the world!
    It’s great he’ll be selling retail now!
