Dallas Market Roundup

I tend to travel regularly throughout the year sourcing for different projects at design shows, such as NY NOW and High Point (see recent posts about these here and here). It’s fun when I can find great pieces right in my backyard, so to speak. Last week I spent one exhausting day at the Dallas Market, held at the Dallas Market Center. There were some interesting vendors that I haven’t seen at other shows, which made it worth the trip.

I’ve had lighting on my mind lately, and I found some wonderful fixtures at the market. I also spotted some vibrant textiles. Here are a few things that caught my eye:

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by design and the subtle impact of our surroundings. Some of my earliest influences still resonate – I think of the dark woods and textured lodens of my father’s shooting club, the smell of fresh paint on a new canvas, and the bold symmetry of the Philip Johnson Glass house just down the street. For me, it was a natural path to become an Interior Designer. I love what I do. I’ve created this Blog to share my thoughts, finds and design inspirations. I hope you enjoy it!
