Since 1983, Jim Dahlgren and Allan Duck have been providing custom luxury to some of the world’s most prestigious clients. Say you’re the CEO of a major company and you need some high-end accessories with which to decorate your boardroom. Or perhaps you’re the head of state and you would like a customized dining set for your private jet. Maybe you run an exclusive resort and want to cover your guest beds with fine linens. Name the fancy need, and Dallas-based Dahlgren Duck can help. Dahlgren and Duck recently moved its showroom from North Dallas to the Design District, and it’s a beauty. Think floor-to-ceiling displays filled with custom place settings fit for a king (no kidding—they’ve decorated palaces), beds covered in pure Egyptian cotton, and flat-screen TVs airing programs about how each item is carefully hand-crafted. And lest you fear a museum feel, Mr. Dahlgren ensures that it’s okay to touch these works of art—they were designed to withstand turbulence and choppy seas, after all. Check out the custom orders they have completed throughout the years, as well as lines from world-class manufacturers such as Hermès, Baccarat, and Haviland.
