It might be time for summer vacation, but there’s been no slow down here in the District! Several new showrooms, restaurants and apartments have been putting in extra hours to open their doors. Here’s the 411 on what’s new, what’s coming soon and where you need to be in the Dallas Design District!
Willkommen Bernadette Schaeffler - Newcomer to the design scene Bernadette Schaeffler has opened her first showroom, The Bernadette Schaeffler Collection, at 1616 Hi Line. Though its official grand opening isn’t until September, the showroom is open for business and ready for you to browse! I walked the new space yesterday with showroom manager Rudolph, and I must say I was giddy with excitement at all the beautiful things.
