Exquisite Surfaces, Dallas

New and noteworthy. . . Exquisite Surfaces is opening on Thursday Oct. 24 in the Dallas Design District. Founded by Tunisian native Paula Nataf 15 years ago in Los Angeles, the showroom carries stone, terra cotta, wood and tile (including some gorgeous cement tiles). Nataf also has a cache of rare, antique tiles from North Africa with wonderful Moroccan motifs. 1617 Hi Line Drive, suite 240, 469. 484.4210.

New Ligne Roset in the Dallas Design District
Houndstooth heaven . . . this black and white pattern is big in fashion right now and it's also everywhere in home decor this season—one of my favorites is Ligne Roset's new Togo lounge in Houndstooth. See it, along with their full collection at the newly opened showroom in the Dallas Design District (the store had a soft opening last week). The owners, Adam and Brittany Branscum, own a Ligne Roset in Houston, and they're a young, hip couple with lots of style, so you know what they bring to Dallas will fit the Texas market perfectly. Check Brittany and Adam out here. 1701 Hi Line Dr., 214.749.0064
