Throwback Thursday: Dallas Design Weekend

Last week, my assistant, Molly, and I headed up to Dallas to explore Dallas Design Weekend! We were on the hunt for some cool pieces for a few of my clients, and just to get an idea of what DDW has to offer. It was a crazy and quick 48 hour trip and we saw lots of great furniture, art and accessories. 

First stop in Dallas, the Dallas Design Market at the Dallas Market Center. It was crazy busy and a whirlwind as we worked all 15 floors in 6 hours! Talk about speed shopping! 

 Loved this cork dresser from  Currey & Company . Clean lines, great texture and really digging the lucite and brass hardware. Three drawer nightstands are my favorite for ample storage and a pretty look.

 InDetail had some awesome finds. These  cFc  blush pink velvet tub chairs were a highlight of the weekend. Great looking and definitely passed the comfy test!

 One of my favorite accessories were these magnetic acrylic displays by  Wexel Art . What a great idea for displaying kids art or framing photographs and I love how simple they are. I’d love to have these in my office for client inspiration boards!

 Was happy to stop by one of my favorite lighting companies,  Visual Comfort & Co.  They carry some really unique pieces from a variety of designers and brands. They're my go-to lighting company.

On our second day in Dallas, after some much needed coffee, we hit up some independent showrooms and stores. 

 The  James  showroom was hard to beat, hosting some of my favorite fabric and wallpaper lines... please open a showroom in Houston!

 The  Rebecca Atwood  papers and fabrics at James were gorgeous and definitely some of my favorite, perfect for a few projects I’m working on.

  Made Goods  had a great showroom too, with quite a few furniture pieces that made me swoon. Loving this green.

 Our last stop before heading back home to Houston was a store I’ve followed for awhile but had never been too, and boy, it did not disappoint!  Blue Print  is a beautiful shop in a gorgeous old house near downtown Dallas.

 If you’re ever in Dallas, definitely make a pit stop here! Their art selection is fantastic and their displays are beautiful! Found lots of goodies here!
