Francis Dixon Smith

With a dream and a passion for design in the late 1940s, Francis Dixon Smith set out to open a small design studio. Her knowledge of antiques combined with her love for clean lines put her on a fast track to carry out her dream. The studio opened on St. Charles Street in downtown Baton Rouge and thrived in that location until 1970 when they moved to the Lobdell location that we all know and love today. Fast forward 50 years later, and the historic building continues to reflect the very essence of Dixon and her vision.
