What Is the Lake Burton Trading Post?

We're a company that's bringing to life our own thoughts on accenting a home;  Our guiding premise is this idea that home is a place you should yearn for—a space that suits you and is tailored to your own sense of well-being and style—something that both spurs and celebrates your accomplishments. 

We derive a sense of self from the places we love and those we have called home.  

In our case, that means the sunny, palm-lined streets showcasing the unmistakable architecture of Coral Gables in Miami; the rolling subdivisions of post-plantation homes dotting greater Atlanta; and the magnificent, modern Appalachian boathouses rising out of the deep waters of Lake Burton in the foothills of the blue ridge mountains. 

Join us as we explore the transformative nature of well-placed accents.  We've experienced the sense of elevated grandeur after erecting a cupola, the soaring elegance of a perfectly balanced weathervane, and we're always studying the hundreds of tiny ways to add a human touch and a warmth to our homes and our living spaces.

Shop our existing collections for yourself and your loved ones.  Assume that we are working tirelessly to deliver a seamless experience, and immaculate products at comfortable prices.  And reach out to us without trepidation or hesitation.  We exist for you—to address your hopes and your needs, both recognized and subconscious.

May your homes become a sanctuary.

Cheers,
