Lillian August: A Life in Design

Hilton Head Furniture Store - Lillian August: A Life In Design

Lillian August is a name synonymous with timeless elegance and luxurious home furnishings. But Lillian August isn’t just a brand – it’s the story of a woman who, along with her family, has built a design empire for over three decades.

August’s journey began in 1988 with the founding of her company alongside her son Dan Weiss. What started with a focus on textiles has blossomed into a full-fledged lifestyle brand encompassing furniture, bedding, wallcoverings, and more.

A Signature Style

August’s design philosophy is centered on the idea of creating “compelling and livable rooms.” Her trademark look seamlessly blends classical and modern styles, incorporating vibrant colors and patterns. This unique ability to marry tradition with a fresh perspective has been a cornerstone of her success.

A Family Legacy

Lillian August is a true family business. Dan Weiss’s role has been instrumental in the company’s growth, and recently, Eliza Weiss, representing the third generation, has joined the leadership team. This infusion of fresh ideas ensures that the brand stays relevant while retaining its core values.

Lillian August Today

Today, Lillian August is a licensed brand with products sold through a variety of retailers, from high-end furniture stores to department stores. The brand’s philosophy of creating beautiful yet comfortable spaces resonates with a wide audience.

Lillian August’s influence extends beyond the products themselves. She is a respected figure in the design industry, and her showrooms and award-winning interior design projects continue to inspire.

Looking Forward

With a strong family at the helm and a commitment to timeless design, Lillian August is poised for continued success. The brand’s ability to evolve with the times while staying true to its core principles ensures its place as a leader in the home furnishings industry for years to come.
