Atchison Home has been our store for 30 years and our actual home for 15 years. During that time, my wife, Sylvia, and I have been steadily scouring markets and warehouses in Europe and the U.S. to continue offering our customers a look for their homes based on a timeless quality, casual elegance and comfort that truly makes a house a place you want to come home to. We invite you to be a part of the Atchison Home experience…
-Tony Atchison, Creator/Owner
This commercial was filmed in our warehouse showroom in downtown Mobile, AL. Opening with an overhead shot of an XL Verellen sofa and a rustic Asian inspired coffee table quickly reveals our aesthetic which is sometimes referred to as “roughly refined”. I chose a British voice over talent to say “Atchison Home, Furniture so cool…French women sing about it”. Which is followed by a quick glance around our showroom to the beat of an Edith Piaf style song. We used an American production company to film a commercial that mixes the voice talent of a British actor with the sounds of a French female musician all while our worldly style is revealed in the background. I believe this is Atchison Home, combining parts and pieces from anywhere and everywhere to create a truly meaningful surrounding.
In a second version to the previous video we allowed the French music to take the lead and let the British voice over talent finish the sequence of beautiful shots around our store. Quick note, the final shot taken on our 4th floor is of a chair we purchased from our kiwi friend Kim at Eloquence.
This commercial was filmed and produced a few years back when our name was still Atchison Imports. For this one, owner and creator Tony Atchison was the voice talent. The overwhelming focus of these spots was to show the shear size of our store and the variety as we have evolved from an antique store to a home store, Atchison Home.
