Dwell with Dignity’s Thrift Studio LIVE Is Now Open
Dwell with Dignity, a nonprofit that transforms homes for families in need, just launched its semi-annual Thrift Studio LIVE fundraising event. Last year’s shopping experience was virtual. This year, shoppers can browse deeply discounted high-end home goods both online and in person. As always, all proceeds will support the nonprofit’s mission of changing lives through design. Dwell with Dignity is working hard to champion diversity and inclusion in the design world, and this year, each Thrift Studio LIVE event will feature a designer of color. Zara Taitt, Senior Interior Designer and Executive of Operations at Jan Showers & Associates, is the first. Taitt styled a serene vignette with a pretty spring palette for the spring shopping event, which runs until April 30 in West Village. Schedule an appointment to shop on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Estelle Colored Glass Is Open in Fort Worth
Stephanie Summerson Hall, the founder of Estelle Colored Glass, named her brand in honor of her grandmother Estelle, an antiquing enthusiast and longtime collector of colored glass. The South Carolina-based home décor line includes a mix of pastel and jewel-toned stemware, glassware, and cake stands in vintage-inspired shapes. After successful pop-ups in North Texas, Hall decided that a permanent showroom was a logical next step. Now, her high-end, hand-blown glass pieces can be shopped in person in Fort Worth’s Sundance Square. Appointments are required to enter the showroom at 112 East 4th Street. Email [email protected] to book a time to shop.
