METAL + PETAL

residential + commercial design

2016 was a big year. Three years after meeting and falling in love, newlyweds Jade and Graham Joyner went into business together. Metal + Petal, their full service interior design firm, marries the best of their talents while offering an all-encompassing list of services that appeal to both residential and commercial clients alike. From conception to installation, and everything in-between, they quickly made a name for themselves thanks to their modern approach to traditional design and their methodology that beautiful design doesn’t have to be expensive. Balance is at the heart of Metal + Petal (even the name implies it- and we can thank Graham for that), as they seamlessly pair simplicity and decadence, masculine and feminine, Southern style with a European flair, and sophistication and soul in every space.

GRAHAM, Co-Founder and CEO of Metal + Petal and native Athenian, handles the business and management side of the company. His analytical mind and background in branding, retail, construction, and property management lends itself perfectly to Jade’s creativity. Educated at Young Harris College, he began his career in Corporate Management in Athens before moving on to work with Masada Leather and Outdoor. There, he mastered a wide variety of skills including buying, marketing, and website development. Years later, in 2015, he founded Boutique Brand Builders, a creative branding agency that helped companies, including Jade’s then interior design firm (this is how they met), with everything from brand strategy to social media marketing and SEO to data analytics. And after that, well the rest is history. His unique experience sets Metal + Petal apart, giving them the ability to offer a 360-degree approach to each project.

JADE, Co-founder and Principal Designer, is an Alabama native and the creative force behind Metal + Petal with almost 20 years of experience designing interiors in Europe and America. While she actually got her start in advertising, after studying Art History in Vienna, kicking off her career working at global advertising giant Ogilvy & Mather, she founded her first interior design firm in 1999 while living in Budapest, Hungary. With her eye for art, love for all things beautiful, and a family background in interior design, this career change was a natural choice. Less than a year later, she landed her first big project for AIG Global Real Estate & Lincoln Properties Inc. designing Warsaw-based model homes that were the first of their kind in modern Poland. Jade spent the next 15 years in Europe, taking inspiration from the architecture and design that surrounded her in Istanbul, Vienna, Warsaw, and Budapest. When she finally decided to move back stateside in 2005, she settled down in Washington D.C., where she worked on a variety of residential and commercial projects in the area. Her southern roots beckoned her home in 2008, where she re-launched her business in Athens, GA, and has since been working to create a new definition for “Southern” living.

Together, they strike the perfect balance, both at work and at home. In addition to running the Metal + Petal interior design firm, they own and operate the Athens based brick & mortar store of the same name, which opened in 2016. Jade and Graham reside in Athens with their four daughters and shop dog, Ranger.
