The internationally acclaimed lighting design firm recently opened a brick-and-mortar shop on Dragon Street in the Design District. I’m in awe of their extraordinary chandeliers and charming pendants.
Anteks Curated, 4004 Villanova St.; 214-706-6983 or antekscurated.com
Owner Jason Lenox has been styling rustic homes from Dallas to Denver to for years, but he recently opened a small, artisan-based store at The Plaza that includes unusual and one-of-a-kind pieces. Think hand-blown glassware and larger-than-life prints of the Lone Ranger, all perfect for that ranch-style home deep in the heart of Texas.

From Missoni throws to Tom Dixon vases, you’ll have a hard time not wanting to feather your entire house with everything from this aptly named Knox neighborhood shop.

A taste of the Hamptons in landlocked Texas. That’s the best way to describe Mecox. Soft blues, white-washed pine, and seagrass.
