An abundance of home furnishings can protect you when Dracula claws through the dry wall because your blood smells like monster candy. Obstacle up with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $100 toward one-of-a-kind furniture at The Wooden House, which has two area locations.
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.
