Winter Market Trip to Dallas

In: Interior Design, Travel


Although we travel to many design centers each year (LA, Atlanta, New York and London), we always enjoy the Dallas market in our own backyard. It’s a fun place to observe the latest trends, see new designs and catch up with old friends.  This year was no exception so we thought we would share some of our favorite finds from what has become an important tradition for our firm.

The James showroom was full of color and beautiful pieces. This framed Jennifer Shorto wallpaper panel definitely caught our eye!

We have been visiting our friend Brendan Bass for more years than we can remember.  His showroom is always a favorite stop with many interesting and eclectic pieces.

It would be fun to design a space around these sculptural over-sized masks.

We love the texture of these earthenware jars at the Brendan Bass Showroom.

These pressings by Lauren Lachance at Wolf Hall Antiques were stunning.

We see lots of applications for these handsome toile leaves and flowers.

The scale of this 18th century Spanish Colonial presentation table of long rectangular form from Nick Brock Antiques on Henderson was impressive.

We spotted this interesting collection of Palissy at Nick Brock Antiques.

It’s no surprise that we gravitated toward the light and fresh objects of blue and white. These hanging paper lanterns and whimsical printed papers could make an interesting and inexpensive statement to casual spaces.

You have probably seen these side tables in many of our projects. We can’t get enough of them!

Don’t you love the endless list of objects that can become focal points on a wall?  The repetition of similar shapes creates interesting compositions such as these 19th-century European cheese boards, convex mirrors, and antique baskets.

These new Aidan Gray buffet and table lamps can be paired with 12 different colored painted shades.

There were a few new Faux Boix pieces of furniture from Currey and Company.

A bright green wall provided an interesting backdrop for these eclectic fragments framed in plexi shadow box frames.

We loved seeing the new Palecek lines, especially this beachy rattan collection.

Another favorite stop in Dallas is Pittet Architecturals, where we always find a great collection of antique architectural elements and finishes. From fireplace surrounds, antique doors, sinks, and lighting these are some of the highlights from this trip.

This is just a fraction of wonderful things we saw! If you don’t already, follow us on Instagram to see some of the items we bought for clients…we will be posting photos as the shipments arrive!
