The historic neighborhood is no longer just a hub of upscale designer-only showrooms. It’s transformed into a place for people who love the vibe of modern living
The Design District of Dallas has evolved from being an industrial zone to a vibrant ‘live-play-work’ neighborhood where interior design fans and practitioners converge to enjoy the ‘hunt’ for unique home fashion pieces – from exotic Asian chandeliers to some of the world’s finest Persian rugs and carpets. If you like old but beautiful things, this is one stop in North Texas that should be on top of your list.
It’s hard to beat the convenience of online shopping, especially if you’re looking for antiques. But once you set foot on Dallas Design District grounds, you’ll realize why so many people love to come and look for treasures here. Sure, it’s got this reputation for being upscale and swanky, which is a holdover from a bygone era when only designers and their elite clientele were given audience by showroom operators. It’s no longer the norm these days as many homeowners prefer going the DIY route in buying home decor and furniture. And with the number of retail stores rapidly dwindling down in the last couple of years, companies here would be remiss to shut out the public.
Antique shopping in the district can be quite the experience. For starters, it’s fun and enjoyable to move from one shop to the next since most of them are bunched close together especially inside the chic Dallas Design Center along the Stemmons Freeway. There is also great incentive in having all these premium showrooms in the area – you can be sure you’re buying from reputable antique stores run by specialists and experts.
