One of the things Peridot West has been known for over the years has been our stellar customer service and our talented design team. We can help with large and small design projects or help pick out the perfect gift. Come in and meet the crew!

Dina Woodruff

Dina is the woman behind it all, having conceptualized Peridot in 1989 and kept it thriving and growing ever since. Her intentions back then were simple—to create a casual, friendly place where you could walk in and find an ideal gift for anyone (or yourself). There would be unusual and unexpected items, classic pieces, and goods from near and far, and the staff would be like a family. More than 20 years later, the business has blossomed and expanded, but Dina’s original hopes remain fulfilled.

As a true Atlantan, she ensures that her stores reflect the spirit of the city—its energy, diversity, history, and uncanny ability to deliver something for everyone. Much like spending a day in one of Atlanta’s charming, walkable neighborhoods feels like a getaway from urban life, stepping inside Peridot feels like an escape…yet the city lights are still within sight.

An expert gifter, yes, but Dina is also an entrepreneur, philanthropist, mother, and natural renovator and builder. Even as a young girl, she could often be found rearranging and redecorating her bedroom. She appreciates the impressive things (a striking string of lanterns on a porch) as well as the unassuming (a dainty light in the corner of a room) and hopes everyone that sets foot inside her stores will, too.

We’ve moved a few times and have found our favorite place in the West Side Design District full of fun restaurants, shops, and activities just minutes from our fab neighborhoods, midtown and easy access from Vinings and beyond.

The goal in design is to make your home feel like a carefully curated collection of favorite finds…..One of my favorite things about Peridot is the unique mix of new, antique, and found objects. We make it easy and fun!

There’s no such thing as too many pillows! The right design and size pillow (or six) can elevate a room’s separate elements into one beautiful space that tells a story, makes a room look comfortable and inviting.

I think of lighting as the jewelry of room decor! A unique lamp or chandelier not only provides necessary illumination, but it makes a room sparkle and becomes a conversation piece. Whether you are designing a room from scratch or just want to quickly update a space, lighting should be your go to accessory. Come see us at Peridot for that special finishing touch.
