Antèks stocks a variety of rustic and leather-upholstered furniture and Western-themed home goods. Place a single candelabra made from a naturally shed whitetail antler ($189) atop a handmade table lamp ($175) to shed some light on cast-iron stars decorating the table's base. Or, competitive cowpokes can cushion mechanical bulls with black-and-white cowhide pillows ($119 each), and a pair of buffalo bookends ($175) can herd a set of sheepskin-covered encyclopedias.
More than 65 years of experience and a worldwide network of creative rug weavers ensure that Stark Home's showroom caches represent both the traditional and the innovative in home style. Handmade from the fabric of Old World weavers, Darius antique rugs imbue any room with elegance, whereas friskier animal-print carpeting adorns lounges or underdressed leopards with playful style. Beyond floor coatings, the outlets also boast a multitradition menagerie of fabric, wall coverings, and furniture. Most showrooms supply both do-it-yourself designers and professional decorators with specially priced merchandise supplemented by store-exclusive sets.
Nadeau characterizes its furniture as "with a soul" because it's true artisan work: handcrafted from wood rather than mass-produced from gasket pylons. Showcase fine china and live gerbils in a mahogany regal glass-door cabinet ($372), or in a hefty, finely trimmed narrow bookcase with drawer ($197). Or, display a new moving picture box on a bobbin leg console table ($116). Furniture comes in a myriad of stains and colors, and many pieces are one-of-a-kind. Nadeau's ever-changing inventory includes a variety of sturdy dining room tables and chairs. Prices and selection may vary due to rotating inventory, but pieces are always fully assembled and ready to welcome any tuckered torso or mound of toothbrushes.
