Refresh Your Space with These Local Design Legends’ New Offerings

Check out the latest from Emily Summers and Jan Showers.

Required Reading

Once dubbed one of Architectural Digest’s top interior designers in the world, Dallas’ own Emily Summers is always well worth watching. Now, she’s also well worth reading: Her first coffee table book, Emily Summers: Distinctly Modern Interiors (Rizzoli, $50), hits shelves this February and features striking examples of her crisp, elegant, and streamlined work, including a 1960s Palm Springs retreat, a ’40s ranch, and an urban penthouse. The designer also shares her thoughts on how to build collections and create a great modernist home.

Made Anew

While on regular buying trips to Europe in recent years, world-renowned interior designer Jan Showers found it increasingly difficult to source quality antique and vintage furniture for her design work and eponymous Dallas showroom. She decided to take matters into her own hands, producing a line based on the designs of favorite finds with the help of trusted artisans she has long relied on to restore found treasures. The new 1308 collection represents 14 (and growing) painstakingly perfected pieces that are all made to order.

Upholstered pieces can be covered in your choice of fabric—bring in your own or buy off the showroom floor. The collection’s name was chosen for sentimental reasons, notes the designer: “We have maintained the same location at 1308 Slocum Street in the Design District for over 20 years.” And while Showers still stocks the types of antiques that inspired the collection in her open-to-the-public showroom, it’s often hard to tell upon viewing which are original and which are new creations. Says Showers: “The new collection and the antiques in the showroom seamlessly coexist.”
