OK, Knox-Henderson is getting posher with OKA.
Popular British furniture and homeware brand OKA opened its second U.S. store (its first opened in Houston earlier this year) last month in Knox-Henderson. The store features traditional, but approachable, pieces you could easily find in a London apartment, a country estate, or even a Preston Hollow mansion. Think cozy, plush fabrics, lots of pattern and color, quirky accessories, and beautiful china fit for both holiday parties and low key TV dinners. Shop for the perfect hostess gift or redecorate your living room in the 9,000-square-foot store at 4531 McKinney Ave.
Customize your new couch at Interior Define.
Interior Define also opened a new 4,537-square-foot store in Knox last month at 4529 McKinney Ave. The Chicago-based furniture brand specializes in made-to-order pieces—you can pick and choose the shape, cushion fill, upholstery, legs of your sectional, sofa, and more. The Dallas Interior Define Studio, part of a nationwide expansion of more than 30 stores opening by the end of 2022, includes a homey showroom of current collections and accessories and a “swatch wall” with more than 125 fabric, rug, and leg samples. Interior designers are also on hand to help you design the perfect piece for your space.
Tootsies has finally returned to its original The Plaza at Preston Center home.
Some good news: Tootsies has come home, and right in time for its anniversary, too. This month the luxury women’s clothing store, which first opened in Houston in 1972, is celebrating 30 years in Dallas. It also made its grand return to 8300 Preston Rd, Ste. 200, after months of extensive renovations. During Winter Storm Uri, burst pipes flooded the store with 400,000 gallons of water, per a press release. The store was forced to move to a temporary location nearby while a design team, led by David Droese, who originally designed the Dallas Tootsies back in the 90s, repaired and revamped the two-story space. One new addition: Mickey’s Bar, named for Tootsies founder Mickey Rosmarin, who died in 2016, will serve complimentary, seasonal cocktails to shoppers year-round.
Poo-Pourri is now doing double duty.
On December 9, the Addison-based air-freshening brand, which specializes in preventing the evidence of your post-coffee potty break from wafting into the rest of your office, launched a brand-new deodorant. It’s called Pit-Pourri. The deodorant proclaims to be all-natural and aluminum-free with materials like caffeine, prebiotics, and mandelic acid, the latest buzzword in the skincare industry. (Made from bitter almonds, mandelic acid is an exfoliating alpha hydroxy acid. Learn more here.) Pit-Pourri is available online for $9.99 in three scents: Coconut Vanilla Sandalwood, Lavender Sage, and Eucalyptus Sea Salt.
