Margaret Naeve Parker’s eponymous M.Naeve showroom just moved to Main & Co’s historic Dorrance building in downtown Houston. “As a creative person, I feel it is always important to know when a change of scenery is necessary,” she says. “I knew as soon as I stepped into our new space that it was the right decision.” Read on for her latest design dispatch.

What are your goals for this move? That clients view the shop as a destination to become inspired and energized for their projects. There is nothing quite like it in our region, and I am honored to provide that experience. I also hope to grow my design studio within these walls.

Describe the space. It is in one of the city’s oldest buildings. You enter the M.Naeve-designed lobby via a set of inconspicuous doors before hailing a direct-access elevator to our fourth-floor loft. Stepping through the entrance, you are immersed in about 3,000 square feet of highly curated furniture, art, lighting, objects and more in the setting of original plaster walls, arched windows and exposed brick.

What else is new? Our inventory is constantly changing! Additionally, we are now partnering with Workstead to offer their beautiful lighting collection.
