Loyd Paxton Set to Close on August 31
Earlier this month, PaperCity reported that storied antique showroom Loyd Paxton is permanently closing its doors. It’s been a Dallas fixture since 1985, when co-founder Loyd Taylor, now 86, and his late partner Paxton Gremillion opened their first location on Cedar Springs. Art collectors and antique enthusiasts frequented Loyd Paxton to browse an impeccably culled collection of furniture and home furnishings from across the globe. On August 31, Taylor will close his showroom to focus on the interior design business he started with Gremillion in the 1960s. All inventory, from antique Chinese artwork to art deco furniture, will be heavily discounted. Stop by 3137 Irving Boulevard, Ste. 313, to peruse the treasures that remain.
