For over 10 years, Anderson's Furniture and Design Gallery has been one of the fastest growing upscale home furnishings and decor companies in Dallas, Texas. We have locations in Allen, Arlington, Carrollton, Frisco and Southlake, Texas.
Located in historic downtown Carrollton, Silver Star Mercantile Company accents homes with a vast array of charming, ageless wares including furniture, collectibles, and folk art. Treasure hunters can peruse Silver Star's colorful shelves in search of a quaint home adornment or a vintage Western purse to decorate their lucky shoulder. The shop's ever-changing inventory also features a varied collection of glimmering jewelry ($15–$60), Circle E candles ($25), and antique lamps, perfect for illuminating a collection of antique VCR manuals.
At Vada Spa, staff members devote their international training to beauty rituals that use natural and organic products from GM Collins and Pevonia Botanica. Two floors accommodate spacious mani-pedi bars, styling stations, and private, candle-lit treatment rooms that all swirl with activity until 9 p.m. every day. The owners of the Spa make sure that each service is administered by a true specialist––laser technicians only do laser procedures and aestheticians never hand over their facial duties to an assistant or nearby welder. "We're very particular about who we hire," one of the spa owners says. "It has to be someone who's experienced. We don't have anyone here who's just starting out or fresh out of school."
Since their mission is to be a one-stop destination for head-to-toe spa services, Vada's owners do their best to reserve hairstyling chairs and treatment rooms for walk-in customers. They also pride themselves on their expertise with the male aesthetic, offering a lineup of guy-specific spa services including back facials, shoulder waxing, and spare-tire rotations.
Roseann Wilson, owner of Fabric Rows Design House, fills her store with designer fabric from Waverly, Laura Ashley, and Ralph Lauren available at wholesale prices. After a lamp-design consultation ($45), store designers devise custom table or floor lamps from clients' vases, pottery, glassware, and spun sugar busts of Mary Tyler Moore. Lighting wizards can also update an antique or vintage lamp ($18), replace a broken socket ($18), or perform a complete rewiring ($26.99). In addition, clients may opt to have couches and chairs reupholstered with store fabric available by the yard or a velvet tracksuit torn from a defeated rival. Soft lighting brightens the intimate store space, and a gallery of past work adorns the walls for crafty customers to peruse for inspiration.
Culinary Connection curates handmade home goods and recycled sculptures. An Italian handmade Medici dinner plate with painted fleur-de-lis ($40) makes a bold statement while also making up for a chef's poor pronunciation of italian pastas. Sparkling home decor includes candles ($33–$329) and candle holders ($48–$78) and hand-blown glass decanters ($75 each), which can aerate an entire bottle of wine in two minutes. And on the purely aesthetic end, a one-of-a-kind Baby Longhorn yard stake ($29)—constructed out of recycled metal—adds orange hues to any yard, garden, or low-maintenance petting zoo.
