1. Coco and Dash. Teddie Garrigan had been itching to get back into retail ever since she closed her popular home store, Dallas Galleries, more than 20 years ago. This shop is partly named for her daughter (and co-owner) Courtney. Inside, you'll find Asian accessories on top of an antique French table accented with a Tibetan lamb's wool-and-Lucite bench. And while this tableau might sound a little crazy, thanks to the mother-daughter duo's eye for designer, it all fits seamlessly together.

2. Life of Riley. At Life of Riley, owner Milly Miler wants to help shoppers life, well, the life of Riley—surrounded by things that are both beautiful and comfortable. The front is filled with gifts and quirky knickknacks, such as LAFCO candles and vintage badminton racquets. The back is styled in vignettes that show off midcentury modern-inspired furniture. Many of the case goods are made out of repurposed materials—think metal filing cabinets given a second life as side tables.

3. Anteks Curated. Life-size prints of the Lone Ranger and Tonto. Vintage pillows made from Navajo rugs. Hand-dipped candles from Mexico. These are all things that Anteks owner Jason Lenox has hunted down for his newest venture, Anteks Curated. Located in the Plaza at Preston Center, the rustic-meets-modern shop carries home accessories and gifts for the outdoorsy guy or gal in your life, and a large selection of beautiful furniture from its better-known parent store.
