J+G Design Shops Lillian August

Lillian August’s story is such an inspiring one. Starting out as an Interior Designer in the early 80s, she has since grown her design empire to include multiple store locations and licensed lines, including her own namesake line for Hickory White.

Behind every great company there is a wonderful team, and Lillian August is no different. Her two sons John and Dan joined in the venture in 1987 with the opening of their first storefront in Westport, Connecticut. Operating as CEO and COO respectively, it leaves Lillian to do what she does best – designing all signature furniture, textiles, and accessories as Director of Licensed Design. We are in awe of all that Lillian has accomplished and how she is able to stay relevant over the years and changing trends.

We frequent her Flatiron store to get inspiration and ideas for our projects. We just love how the floor displays are always changing! Read more here...
