Cleaning Luxury Fabrics – Dallas Home Design Center – Furniture as Art

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…

Customize your Dallas Design Closet

From adjustable shelving to personal touches like décor, your closet should make sense for you and your lifestyle. If you don’t like or wear beautiful artistic shoes on a regular basis, don’t opt for the clear shoe containers or displaying your shoes as the main attraction. Maybe it’s purses, or maybe you’d rather keep everything under wraps. The point is, your closet is another extension of your design and lifestyle aesthetic. So, do what feels right for you!

Best Bookshelf

In creating the Story Bookcase (2017), they brought a new twist to Sapien-style vertical book storage by allowing the user to position the shelves facing forward or to the side. By holding texts horizontally in a vertical stack, Story holds dozens of books in a very compact footprint. “We hope people see it as a quiet, functional sculpture,” says Hung-Ming. All-metal construction and a heavy weighted base provide strength and stability.

Lamps

A graduate of ENSCI-Les Ateliers in Paris, designer Inga Sempé started her own studio in 2000. She’s since partnered with several renowned firms, including Alessi, Hay, Luceplan and others. Sempé was always impressed by the clever clamp lamps of her childhood, readily available in local hardware stores. These very lamps inspired her Sempé w153 ile Clamp Lamp (2015), which indeed proves that simple can also be sophisticated, consisting of a clamp base with a light source that shines upward into a diffuser mounted on a magnetic ball joint for quick and precise positioning.
