ATLANTA -- Market shoppers filled the entire length of the corridor leading to Jaipur Living's AmericasMart showroom on Saturday as they waited for the opportunity to meet Shayla Copas, one of the South's most highly-acclaimed luxury interior designers and tastemakers.
Immediately prior to the signing event for Copas' new book "Four Seasons of Entertaining", Jaipur Living also hosted a standing-room only crowd of the designer's fans at the Mart's Fiestaware Demonstration Kitchen in Building 2, for a presentation dubbed, Seersucker Social: Entertaining Tips, Cocktails and Recipes.
Hundreds of Atlanta Market attendees eagerly await their turn to meet author Shayla Copas at a book signing hosted by Jaipur Living.
Copas signed over 100 books at the Jaipur Living showroom event, a testament to her popularity. "We love having designer events in our showrooms," said Sasha Wallace, Jaipur Living marketing production manager. "The book signing was refreshing and Shayla was a delight to host. Designers gave her a warm reception in the Jaipur Living showroom and said they were excited to use some of her entertaining tricks."
