Danielle Monti-Morren and Raoul Morren ooze a cool, creative energy. Not in the “I’m cooler than you” way, but in the way that made me want to talk to them for hours. Global Style Directors for the British furniture company Timothy Oulton, the design duo helped launch the Dallas store last summer and returned to change things up. Based out of Los Angeles, they spend most of their time traveling to Timothy Outlon stores around the world (think Paris, mainland China, Barbados), where they work on marketing, branding, and product development for the Timothy Oulton brand.
Their personal life is equally compelling. Danielle and Raoul recently celebrated their anniversary of meeting 20 years ago this January – and have been married for fifteen years. Both living in Atlanta when they met, she was a recent graduate of The Fashion Institute of Technology, he was a working musician and artist who was curating art shows for the city. Working together for fourteen and a half of those years as Monti-Morren Creative, they have helped each other develop a style that Raoul described as “eclectic modern.” For those of you who haven’t visited the Timothy Oulton store, located off of Central and Henderson, it’s definitely worth the trip (even if you aren’t looking for furniture). The store is a trove of amazing furniture and decor goods, with perks like an in-house coffee shop offering sweets and vintage candies, vintage cable-knit sweaters and menswear (Outlon’s vintage line “Threads”), and loads of inspiration to take home.
