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

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
