1. Room & Board is set to open a nearly 12,000-square-foot showroom on McKinney Avenue in the Knox District this spring. Sigh of relief: The location will offer plenty of parking spots.
2. Update your stack of coffee table tomes with Texas Modern: Redefining Houses in the Lone Star State by Hannah Jenkins, which hit shelves in November. It’s a voyeuristic look at uniquely different–and equally beautiful–contemporary Texas homes.
3. Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams was among the roster of retailers that set ground in Fort Worth when the Shops at Clearfork opened in September. Much of the company’s slipcovered and upholstered furniture, case goods, rugs, artwork and lighting can be purchased direct from the floor.
4. Ann Sutherland, president of Dallas-based Perennials Fabrics, has collaborated with celebrity Los Angeles designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard (above) on a collection of eight bold prints. The hues span from subdued beiges to vivid reds and sapphire blues and are available in 29 high-performance, stain-resistant fabrics.
