After 21 years of having a brick and mortar storefront along with our website, Gado Gado is transitioning to an online based business. Over the years, our website sales have continued to grow and it’s now time to follow that lead.

We’ll be in our current retail location at 1483-C Chattahoochee Avenue through mid to late January 2019. Check our website for updated information on moving details. We can also always be contacted via email at info@gadogado.com .

Until then, please visit Gado Gado for some special finds for your home and unique gift items for the holiday season.

We’ll have our office and warehouse in the greater metro area where you’ll still be able to come by and finalize and /or pick up a purchase. Otherwise delivery is a smooth and easy option! For our out of state clients, you won’t even notice the shift!

It’s been a true pleasure being part of the Atlanta retail community. We much appreciate your business over the years!

Please continue to visit us at https://gadogado.com/.

Wishing everyone a very Happy and Peaceful Holiday Season!

Jill & Setiawan

 

 

 

Textile Artist Juliarose Triebes : Messengers of Elysium

Posted by on 14 Sep 2018 in Gado Gado | 0 comments

Juliarose Triebes a creative and talented textile artist, will be showing her newest collection at her joint exhibition “Messengers of Elysium” at the Chur Family Gallery in the Roycroft Powerhouse in East Aurora, New York. 

Juliarose believes it’s important for her work to have a narrative and share a story. She draws inspiration for her designs from mythology and nature. Her work represents metaphors for larger themes, such as our interdependence with our natural environment, and the folly in our belief  that we are autonomous from our ecosystem.

Please join her for the opening reception from 4-9 pm Friday, September 21.  The exhibit will remain on display through November 25, 2018.

Bali – My Postcard Perfect Moment

Posted by on 29 Oct 2015 in Gado Gado, Social Media | 0 comments

Bali is truly my favorite place to BE.  It always adds color and vibrancy to my days and countless opportunities for inspiration as well as reflection. Ceremonies are frequent and famous on this Hindu island and there is always something, somewhere to celebrate and honor. As much as Bali transforms and modernizes, the Balinese continue to prioritize their community and religious duties in their daily lives and it remains the core of an otherwise changing world. For that they have my utmost admiration and respect.

Witnessing ceremonial processions, as the local community (banjar) makes it’s way to the Temple for festivities, is a usual part of life on Bali and something we’ve seen countless times. Quite often though, I don’t have camera in hand, my view is blocked or the photos blurry; however, on this day the gods conspired to provide me with my very own Postcard Perfect Photo Op. It was kismet! All the elements came together for my Kodak moment – especially with so many beautiful Balinese women gracefully balancing such high trays of Temple Offerings (you don’t see those large offerings all the time!). Sitting in our vehicle, with front row view,  Iphone in hand,  I snapped away and was deeply grateful for the opportunity to BE here, NOW. And my additional gift of these images, to always remind me of the beauty of the day.

Ethnic Adds Flavor – Define Your Own Style

Posted by on 7 Oct 2015 in Gado Gado, Social Media | 0 comments

Come home to a space that’s unique and truly your own – so go ahead and define your own style!

Our clients didn’t want to have to choose between the one-of-a-kind, ethnic pieces that called to them and the stream-lined functional style they needed. So, they decided to trust their creative instincts and use the pieces they loved for inspiration to make it all work. The Hand Carved Tribal Free Form Table, Carved Tribal Bench and Teak Slat Side Bookcase from Gado Gado mixed perfectly with their existing favorites. With the gorgeous pop of pumpkin shaded paint, they beautifully blended a variety of different elements to create one fabulous space!

Stop in at Gado Gado and see what inspires you …

One of our long time clients is in the process of renovating a home and she’s detailing the process on her blog:  http://detailssquared.blogspot.com/.

Her and her husband have finished the living room and their pieces from Gado Gado look fabulous in their Mid- Century Modern Style space. The Carved Reclining Buddha, the Hand Chairs and the Curved Teak Bench, are a perfect balance to the glass and chrome shelves and coffee table (and that Mulberry colored sofa rocks!). Hand crafted Indonesian furniture, Art and Home Accents complement so many different design styles, so visit us at Gado Gado and have some fun and mix it up!
