Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Celebrates 25 Years

It all started with 7 dining room chair styles and half a dozen different dining tables. Twenty-five years later, Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams have expanded their eponymous furniture and accessories company to include pieces for every room of your home. In those 25 years, a lot has changed in the design world, but the principles that the company was founded on have not: comfort, beautiful design, and purpose still reign supreme.

To celebrate their anniversary, the duo is hosting 25 parties in 25 cities, and Dallas is on their agenda for tonight. Stop by the Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams store from 6 – 9 p.m. for a meet-and-greet plus a lot of fun. But before you do, check out our Q&A below, where we chat about how they got started in the furniture design business, their favorite part of the design world, and what’s coming in 2015.

We nominated, you voted, and now the results are in. Here are the winners in our annual search for Dallas’ finest florist, butcher, tailor, gift shop, party rentals, and more. Blue Print was selected as the best black for coffee table books, and here’s why.

Located in a renovated house on Fairmount Street, Blue Print is a charming shop filled with furniture, home accessories, and thoughtful gift items. But the shop is positively teeming with coffee table books. Here, you’ll find books on coffee tables (natch), dining tables, and side tables. You’ll find tremendous tomes under geodes, jewelry, and vases. Books about architecture, art, and fabulous gardens are on bookshelves and built-in bookcases in all the rooms on both floors.

For more than 20 years, Anteks Home Furnishings has been providing Dallas design clientele with rustic and western furniture and home accessories. Owner Jason Lenox has decided to embark on a new project—another store, branded Anteks Curated, that will sell gifts, home accessories, menswear, and even some furniture. Many of the items are store-exclusives and sourced form local vendors and designers.

While we know you’re ready to shop the store, which will be located between Mal Malouf and Pockets Menswear, as soon as possible, they won’t be opening their door until later this fall.
