Dallas’ Best Places to Furnish Your Home

If there were an award for the best city to shop for home decorating and finishes, Dallas would win hands down. Whether you’re looking to spruce up or deck out your awesome abode, you’ll find everything you need to create your home, sweet home.

If you’re a Dallas homeowner, you must know about Elliott’s Hardware. Yes, it’s a “hardware store” but it’s the Prada of hardware stores! If you want unique fixtures, fittings, knobs, lighting, hinges, mailboxes and anything else you can think of to outfit your castle, go to Elliott’s. If they don’t have exactly what you’re looking for, they have a library of catalogs to look through and helpful salespeople to direct you. Ordering is a cinch, and they’ll call you when it’s in.

Got a mod vibe going on in your digs but don’t want to pay retail or gallery prices to maintain it? Then Art is Art Consignment is the place for you. Close to Uptown and the M Streets, this Henderson Avenue store features local artists and sells their one-of-a-kind artwork. And if vintage and mid-century furniture and accessories fit your bill, this is your one-stop shop. You could easily outfit your entire home in retro gear from this one store.

Don’t worry Munger Place, Junius Heights and Lakewood, there are plenty of options for your unique and eclectic homes! If Home Depot too generic for your taste, then Discount Home Warehouse on Empire Central is your dream come true. This massive warehouse is filled with reusable building materials donated from gutted mansions in some of Dallas’ most desirable neighborhoods. From glass doorknobs, tin ceilings, stained glass windows, vintage claw foot tubs and chandeliers, to an entire gourmet kitchen pulled from Troy Aikman’s mansion—DHW has it all. Even if you’re not in the market for vintage housewares, DHW is worth visiting just to look around.

Are you a little more traditional but not looking for generic? Then Weir’s is your store. Its showrooms are filled with beautiful, unique furniture and accessories for every room in your house. The folks there can even furnish your outdoor living space. And don’t forget to stop at the country kitchen, located just inside, for a stellar cup of coffee. Hunting for bargains? Then walk around the corner from the Knox Street store to the Weir’s Discount Warehouse, where you’ll find furnishings for up to 75 percent off.

Looking for a day of designer shopping, eating and arts? Then the Dallas Design District is your go-to destination for ideas and visual stimulation galore.

No matter your home needs, taste or budget, Dallas has it. Now go shopping!
