It has been a whirlwind of excitement at Circa Interiors & Antiques these days! We launched a 19 piece upholstery line in Houston, TX, Charlotte, NC, and Birmingham, AL. We are truly grateful for the support received from our community, our contemporaries, and our friends.
Catbird Collection was created by what can only be described as Cindy Smith's tribe: a circle of inspirational talent in architecture and interiors, who are also dear friends. The collection's designers, who all, to our great joy, were able to make it to our official launch in Houston, TX, are: Cindy Smith & Jane Schwab of Circa Interiors & Antiques, Bobby McAlpine of McAlpine Tankersley, Susan Ferrier of McAlpine Booth & Ferrier Interiors, Jeremy Corkern & Paul Bates of Bates Corkern Studio, Ken Pursley of Pursley Dixon Architecture, and Emily Bourgeois of Bourgeoisie Inc.
We were thrilled to have an exclusive story featured by MILIEU Magazine in their most recent issue. Many thanks to our lovely friends at Chateau Domingue and Milieu who hosted our Houston celebration in the most spectacular, elegant setting.

In typical Circa fashion, we worked extraordinarily hard to make the final product and events seem effortless. For those of you who were very much missed - and those who want to relive every moment - here are a few glimpses of the party by Wilson Parish Photo.
