New doors are opening on Dragon Street quicker than Highland Park Village (not quite as pricey, either.) Some are pop-ups—the newest of the new buzz words intended to create just that—buzz; others are rather doubtful art galleries that probably aren’t going to have a long shelf life. Right now I’m liking Highgate House which just got it’s signage up for the last Design on Dragon—a welcome and different addition to the showrooms on the street and a more traditional point of view than others like Smink or Art of Old India. Owners Aimee and Dudley Simms brought their collection of English antiques from their previous pop up in Highland Park Village, (see how this all comes together?) and have added a reproduction textile collection by Nicole Fabre and paintings by Charlotte Seifert compliments of the Norwood Flynn gallery. Check it out for a fresh viewpoint of traditional mahogany.
