Welcome James Farmer to The Exchange!


Plan to join us on Wednesday, March 28 between 2:00 and 4:00 when James Farmer will be signing books in The Exchange!

James Farmer is the author of the Wall Street Journal best-selling garden book, A Time To Plant; Sip & Savor; Porch Living; Wreaths For All Seasons; A Time To Cook, Dinner on the Grounds, A Time to Celebrate and A Place to Call Home.


Born and bred in the South, James is a professional garden, floral and interior designer; cook; author and lifestyle expert.  Additionally, James is editor-at-large for Southern Living and a frequent guest on television and radio. His natural Southern grace and warm personality light up any room! Whether he’s teaching how to plan the perfect summer picnic, using everyday items to create exquisite tabletops, creating stunning flower arrangements and wreaths, or making his grandmother’s skillet peach pie, Farmer masterfully guides his audience through the art of elegant garden living.


James’ newest book, A Place to Call Home, showcases homes he has “had the honor of working in”. He shares with us how he brings together new and old furnishings — creating scenes for Christmas mornings, family dinners and Sunday nights watching TV. The title was born of his appreciation for the opportunity to create spaces that dear friends, adored clients and even family all call home. 


His designs combine the rich traditions of the past with the sensibilities of contemporary life.  Effortless elegance, comfort and harmony are the hallmarks of James Farmer designs.  Join us on March 28 to meet this charming Southern talent!
