1. On the Hunt. Holly Hunt has made her Dallas debut in a big way—15,000 square feet in the Decorative Center, to be exact. Founded by the Texas native in Chicago 30 years ago, the brand has since spread internationally and is, at last, staking its claim locally with its ninth showroom. “Dallas has been on the radar for us to open a new showroom for several years,” Hunt says. “We work with talented Dallas designers and have many friends there already.”

Opened in July, the two-story, to-the-trade showroom carries bespoke furniture, case goods, accessories, and more, all tailored to suit the Dallas interior-design market. Highlights include Dallasite Alison Berger’s minimalist hand-blown glass light fixtures, Christian Astuguevieille’s hemp rope designs, and fashion designer Ralph Rucci’s furniture line, which is available solely at Holly Hunt. Most of Hunt’s own lines of furniture and lighting are customizable, and all of the products she carries are proudly made in America—and many here in Dallas. There is also an in-house boutique dedicated to Hunt’s luxe leather line, where shoppers can find everything from stingray to suede in an array of natural, metallic, and bold hues.
