March always brings renewal-----and new beginnings. We are so excited about our newest Lookbook for the JS Collection because of all of our new product. The Lookbooks are available through Jan Showers or at any of our 7 showrooms around the country. Just go to our website,, for contact information.

Each year, around the third week in March, there is a huge market in L.A. at the Pacific Design Center called Westweek. Editors, designers and architects from all over the country come to see the latest designs in furniture, fabrics, wallcoverings----you get the idea. Below are a few new Sandra Jordan fabrics I plan to use...


We are going out next week to unveil our new pieces, but you will get to see them FIRST right here.

We started developing these pieces a year ago----in order to design and tweak them, make corrections and then photograph them, it takes that much time. We also make sure that none of our pieces ever resemble something else that is on the market by doing market research.

So much goes into every single piece from the Jan Showers Collection that it is difficult to explain----take my word for it, there are lots of things that don't make the cut!! You have just seen the ones that did.


Jan Showers & Associates is decorating one of the larger units at the new Tower Residences. The second Ritz tower in Dallas is truly a wonderful building designed by Robert A. M. Stern. The lobby and common areas are handsome and understated with a fresh look.

Our project there will be installed on April 28, and we are truly excited about how it is going to look! Stay tuned for photos after installation.

There are two wonderful designers doing other units in the building----Laura Hunt and Carleton Varney. Plan on coming by to see all of them in May.


We just returned from a long weekend in New York----this time to buy antiques. I am so thrilled with what we found. Hopefully, all will be restored and in the showroom in mid to late April. We found incredible lamps, chandeliers, chairs, buffets and the most incredible vintage frames from Asprey and Gucci.

While in New York, we met with all of my favorite people at Abrams Books and heard that Glamorous Rooms is in its FOURTH printing!! It makes me so happy that people love the book. I was told that it is selling well all over the world---England, Japan and Germany!

Please check out the new D Home---a really fun and pretty project we did at the W for Kari and Kirby Schlegel. Love the yellow accents on Kari's side and the wonderful woods and menswear fabrics on Kirby's side.

We are working very hard on our new website----it is going to be fabulous. The Old State has been great to work with and we are looking forward to the unveiling in May!
