Fans of Dallas-based online shop The Citizenry now have a centrally located haven to browse the brand’s globally sourced, high-quality home goods. Founded in 2014 by Texas A&M University grads Carly Nance and Rachel Bentley, the company’s first brick-and-mortar venture, The Citizenry Studio, offers visitors a friendly place to shop the handwoven alpaca throws, leather chairs, intricately embroidered pillows, and gift items that have made their site a nationwide hit. To take it from URL to IRL, just look for the blue, midcentury building on Insurance Lane off Knox Street.
[inline_image id=”2″ align=”r” crop=”wide”]Enter the new Design District showroom ModShop with a willingness to go bold. The Slocum Street storefront makes the fifth outpost for the LA-based company founded by husband-and-wife team John and Taryn Bernard. ModShop’s assortment draws mainly from midcentury modern design and the glamorous Hollywood Regency era. Think Palm Springs meets Parisian salon. In addition to the selection of home accessories, furnishings, and accessibly priced artwork, in-store designers are ready to assist with made-to-order pieces.
[inline_image id=”3″ align=”” crop=”full”]With a CV that lists window designer at Calvin Klein and visual director for both Tootsies and Gregory’s, Kurt Haymond knows luxury retail. After taking a couple years off to work as a wardrobe stylist for clients, the retail veteran was ready to start designing and creating beautiful displays—but this time, for himself. His new home goods and floral boutique, The Urban Manor, draws upon Haymond’s expertise while incorporating the more contemporary tastes of the shop’s co-owner, his daughter, Ariel. Lofty display racks fill the front of the Snider Plaza shop with a range of accessories, from Ibolili’s eco-friendly baskets to Olivia Riegel’s bejeweled picture frames. The renovated second floor showcases furniture lines such as Ambella Home Collection and Bliss Studio, as well as works by local artists like Sisa Jasper, who recently completed a Disney piece that will be displayed in the Hilton Anaheim. Shoppers can park in back of the store to pick up fresh blooms at The Urban Garden. The shop’s resident floral designer Rick Phillips, formerly of Dr Delphinium, is on hand to create made-to-order arrangements.
More to Love
[inline_image id=”4″ align=”r” crop=”tall”]Highland Park Village has seen its share of new doors in the past few months, but nothing quite as all-inclusive as Market, the 2,800-square-foot lifestyle boutique from the shopping center’s co-owner, Elisa Summers. Summers partnered with LeeAnn Sauter, founder of Seaside Luxe, a company that creates boutiques for five-star hotels and resorts, to bring in an edited selection of clothing, accessories, home décor, and gifts. Brands such as Kimberly McDonald Home, Le Feu de L’Eau, Aerin by Aerin Lauder, and Missoni Home feature among the designer ranks. If you’re craving something sweet, stop by the Sugarfina shop-in-shop nestled inside. The California-based confectioner gives Park Cities dwellers easy access to its “gourmet candies for grown ups,” like the popular Sugar Lips and Bento Boxes.
Throw Some Shade
