Nearly two years after it was first announced, Jean de Merry’s Dallas showroom has officially opened its doors in the Design District, offering interior designers a glam haven along Hi Line Drive. The new location marks the fourth showroom for the furniture and lighting design house. For co-owner Christian Darnaud-Maroselli, the decision to open a store in Dallas felt organic. äóìWe liked the city a lot, and we have good relationships with the designers in Dallas,äó he says. äóìSo when the opportunity came to us, we knew we were ready for the adventure.äó
Industry professionals can work their way through the sprawling, 12,000-square-foot showroom, which has been divided into beautifully designed vignettes. Each space is filled with an ever-changing mix of modern and vintage pieces from Jean de Merry’s namesake French deco-inspired line and selections from international artisans making their Dallas debut. Among the bold names are Azadeh Shladovsky, whose pouf ottomans can be found in Monique Lhuillier’s closet, and Sydney-based lighting designer Christopher Boots. The new outpost also features exclusive collaborations, including handcrafted furnishings from Netherlands-based Heijden Hume, contemporary pieces from Aussie duo Hamel+Farrell, and bespoke furniture and lighting from fellow Frenchman Jean-Louis Deniot.
