The Jan Showers Collection is in 7 showrooms around the U.S. Each year, we change our displays in these showrooms. That means that lots of beautiful samples end up in our Dallas warehouse. We usually sell these samples to our clients privately and by appointment. This year, we are bringing all of them into our showroom on Slocum Street and we are having a huge sale. Many of the samples will be marked down 50% . Here are a few of my favorite pieces included in the sale.
At the same time, we are marking our antiques inventory down 30-75%. Our showroom with be filled with the most incredible values. Here are a few of my favorite antiques on the sale.
As most of you know, we NEVER put our lamps on sale, but we are this time. We have a great assortment of ceramic, bronze and glass vintage lamps with our trademark custom shades, Lucite bases and French silk cord.

As most of you know, an earthquake devastated the island of Haiti last week. Over half of the population of Haiti is under 18 years of age. This is a time for all of us to show the generosity that America is famous for.

2010 has arrived so I thought it might be fun to talk about new/old inspirations (everything old is always new again).
As most of you know, I'm not crazy about trends....I'm more into style than fashion although I'm the first to admit that I adore fashion and, at its best, it is an art form just as good interior design can be. However, thought I would let you know what's in my head these days on the subject of interiors.
3. REINTERPRETATION OF CLASSIC PIECES----I dreamed of a glamorous Regency console reinterpreted to suit my style and the result is our new JS Collection piece, The Carlyle Console.
6. A demand for ART..... I always advise my clients to hire an art consultant. Good art can be found at reasonable price points.
10. I am dying to use GRACIE'S HAND PAINTED WALLCOVERING in a bedroom.
Well, here we are again....how fast did 2009 go by? It's time to think about all of the people we love and care about and what to give them at this special time of the year. Since I've been traveling so much this fall as well as being in lots of stores, I've had the opportunity to get a few ideas along the way with a little help from some friends.
Here are a few great ideas for you this holiday season:
Shelle Bagot, VP and General Manager of the flagship Neiman-Marcus store in downtown Dallas suggests.....
Ann Sutherland had a great idea for the holidays this year---when interior designers came in to David Sutherland to shop for clients' houses this year, they could find these elegant gifts to give......I bought several of the charming little silver jiggers for gifts and then realized what great miniature vases they would make for my dining table---note the chic packaging!
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!! And, here's to a prosperous, healthy 2010.......from my house to yours.
