In Dallas’ Design District, a New Frontier for Residential Growth

Dallas real estate firm JMJ Development plans to soon break ground on a mixed-use hotel, condo, and retail tower in the city’s Design District, and judging by what we’ve seen of the project so far, it’s fair to say this developer’s vision goes beyond what we’re used to in this part of town.

How to Clean Oriental Rugs and Carpets

The best way to keep a rug clean is to keep it from getting dirty in the first place. Removing outdoor shoes when entering the house (as people do in most rug-weaving countries) is a good idea if this accords with your lifestyle. Bare-foot or sock-foot traffic is much gentler to a rug than a hard outdoor-shoe sole (or spike heel), and leaving your outdoor shoes at the entrance to the house tracks in much less dirt…

Fiber Care & The Cleaning Company

Fabric Protection & Cleaning Services for Upholstery, Draperies, Rugs and Carpet. CALL (214) 987-4111

FiberCare is an invisible, long-lasting finish that protects against spots, stains and spills. FiberCare works by impregnating fibers with co-polymer resins in a mineral spirit base. This means dust and dirt can’t get trapped within the fiber. Spills can be easily blotted up, dirt and grit can be more effectively removed by vacuuming or damp dusting, thereby, increasing fiber life. FiberCare can be applied to all fibers, new and old, even those that have been temporarily protected with mill level finishes such as Scotchguard or Teflon. FiberCare protects against both oil-base and water-base stains…

Cleaning Luxury Fabrics

With all the types of fabric blends, cleaning materials, and temperature settings, maintenance and care for fabrics can be pretty confusing and intimidating! There are some general rules such as don’t over-wash and when in doubt, use cold water, but the rules and methods of care do go a bit deeper than that… depending on the fabric, of course!

That’s why we’ve decided to create this series of care and methods for fabrics! In this series of guides, we’ll give you short and easy lists for your reference that will note qualities of the fabrics, how to wash them (or not wash them), and when it’s safe (or not!) to iron a fabric! We’ll start with a small group–the Luxury fabrics–consisting of Silk, Velvet, Wool, and Leather.

Furniture as Art

How Should Furniture Respond to the World Around It?

Artists have long been interested in the domestic space, but as the distinction between art and design becomes ever more blurred, more artists are making objects that function, and more designers are making sculpture. Plus: Five designers create original furniture, exclusively for T.

WHEN WE TALK about artists making furniture, an old debate over whether design counts as art (and vice versa) rises once again to the surface, like a shark baited with chum. Furniture designers aren’t, by the logic of the category, really artists, and artists, by that same logic, must normally be engaged in a higher pursuit than furniture…

These Artists Would Love for You to Sit on Their Work

A zany perversity is rampant in the studios of many young, contemporary creators who are trampling the boundary between furniture and fine art. For artists who want to break rules, this offers tempting propositions: chairs that aren’t meant for sitting, lamps that are less interested in illumination than in aesthetic verve, home goods that don’t work like they should. Rebellious aesthetes are turning old, recognizable forms—the sofa, the shelf—into objects for considerable contemplation. In their studios, provocation and individual expression override comfort and utility…

Over 100 3D Printing Projects for Your Home

“But what are they really good for except printing more plastic crap that we don’t need?” We hear such sentiments a lot when talking about 3D printing.

When Make: put together the first Ultimate Guide to 3D Printing just two short years ago, we decided to address this criticism by including an article on practical things you could create with a 3D printer. We really had to dig deep to find worthy candidates.
