13350 Dallas Pkwy., Ste. 2010. 972-776-4760.

Following in the footsteps of clothing retailers like H&M and Zara, Banana Republic has launched its own home furnishings brand. BR Home dropped a soft-goods line in the spring, with furniture following in September. Shop the organic, modern pieces at Banana Republic’s Galleria Dallas location. —Catherine Wendlandt

Front and Center

5959 Royal Ln., Ste. 616.

Frontgate is ending 2023 in a new location. The home furnishings showroom is moving from Plano to a 9,263-square-foot showroom in Preston Royal this November. The sweeping new space will be “a better holistic shopping experience,” says Kate Beebe, Frontgate’s retail and trade marketing manager. Inside, the new showroom is staged in cozy, home-inspired vignettes. There’s a seasonal product vestibule and an outdoor furniture atrium that’s meant to “truly mimic the outdoor experience.” Beebe’s most excited for the store’s new design studio, where customers can work with Frontgate’s staff designers. —CW

Lakewood gift shop Talulah & Hess has expanded, taking over the adjacent space previously occupied by Scarlet Reagan. The new 1,622-square-foot space, dubbed Je Ne Sais Quois, has allowed owner Elizabeth Mast to expand the store’s offerings of furniture and home accessories. Retail customers can shop designer lines, including Thibaut (pictured below), Jonathan Adler, and more. —Jessica Otte

Need to Knoll

2811 McKinney Ave. | 214-855-0200

Throughout the 20th century, Herman Miller and Knoll paved the way for modern American design. Now the legacy brands, which merged in 2021 as MillerKnoll, have opened their first joint showroom. The 14,000-square-foot space is like the “host who makes the introduction” to the brand’s products, says Tim Straker, MillerKnoll’s chief marketing and communications officer. While the space features other brands—including Maharam, Edelman, and Muuto—the namesake brands have dedicated suites. “The entire showroom is planned as a real workplace setting,” says Knoll design vice president Jonathan Olivares. There’s a central conference room with samples and customization opportunities, as well as vignettes of other workstations, private spaces, and lounges. —CW
