I’m always happy to see old friends doing new things—especially a line like Randolph and Hein that was so revolutionary back in the day. They effectively introduced the “California” look to the Dallas market in the late 1970s at John Edward Hughes with huge, over scale sofas and chairs that people simple could not get enough of and that paved the way for most high end traditional upholstery for the next twenty years. And, John Dickinson—does anyone remember the goatskin room he created here in 1980? One wall at the JEH showroom completely covered in blocks of stretched goatskin.The complete room was furnished in peach meshi silk, John’s whimsical white plaster furniture, and other pieces covered in natural goatskin. Well, I’m happy to say their new collection is looking exciting to me. Check it out at www.randolphhein.com., or if you’re local, go see it in person at the Ellouise Abbott showroom.
