Metro Furniture Show's founders started their now multimillion-dollar operation by selling mattresses out of their garage-turned-storefront. Today, they take on big-name furniture companies while staying true to their startup roots, outfitting homes with a wide range of furnishings that they sell for less than traditional retailers sell them.
Visitors the Metro Furniture Show find pieces suitable for all rooms of the home, from sleek leather sofa sets from Fossil and Soho to herds of pillow-top mattresses ideal for cushioning falls in the unlicensed amusement park in the backyard. Metro Furniture Show also outfits homes with appliances and electronics.
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.
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.
The Wooden House decorates its eclectic space with multitudes of elegant furnishings and adornments fetched from all over the world. Ornately designed cabinets ($500–$3,000) hold habiliments handsomely, while 19th-century-inspired dining tables ($500–$3,000) designed with carvings or handcrafted from reclaimed wooden doors can add historic gravitas to TV dinners. Meanwhile, alarm clocks can snooze comfortably upon colorful nightstands ($150–$450), and fine chairs ($125–$950) complement coffee tables ($150-$1,000) and bookshelves ($650–$1,950). The store's varied selections—like laws of gravity—constantly change, as new furnishings are regularly trucked in from the main warehouse in the Dallas Design District.
