Dallas Design News!

NEW IN JANUARY . . . Designer Adriana Hoyos is bringing her sunny Latin flair to Dallas later this month with a new eponymous Hi Line showroom in the Dallas Decorative Center. Hoyos is known for her hospitality design (think TRUMP, Swissotel and Starwood) and residential projects throughout the U.S., and Latin America. Based in Ecuador with furniture showrooms already in Venezuala, Miami and Dania Beach, this will be Hoyos' first location in Texas. I'll be covering more about this new showroom on the  blog and in Modern Luxury Interiors Texas, but meanwhile, check out the stunning Adriana Hoyos website.

Stay tuned for more info and images to come soon.

 Sponsors' Spotlight: BRENT HULL

Hand-carved pedestal from Brent Hull Signature Collection

Fortworth-based Brent Hull's hand-carved pedestals are from his new Brent Hull Signature Collection, and recall the classical forms of the great classicists Adam and Palladio. They also remind me of the exquisite craftsmanship of British royal David Linley's priceless carved furniture and objects. I like to think that Linley and Hull, each in their own parts of the world, are helping to keep the ancient art of fine woodworking alive. Hull, who studied at the legnedary North Bennett Street School in Boston is one of the world's few experts in historic millwork.

Made of mahogany or painted maple (in 15 historic colors), the pedestals can be customized in such beautiful woods as walnut, birdseye maple, ebonized ash, and French white oak. Substantially scaled, they average between 12"– 42" high and cost between $3,600 – $6,800.
