O KA co-founder Sue Jones has dreamed of this moment for 22 years, and Anglophiles are rejoicing at the news: The very British furniture and accessories brand's second U.S. store opens next month on McKinney in the former RH temporary space. The emporium carries OKA's full home-furnishings range, including the popular Stafford dining chair, designed by OKA co-founder Lady Annabel Astor. Also look for handcrafted rattan accessories, tableware by fashion designer Adam Lippe, and the blue-and- white Kraak china collection that's a near-exact copy of Ming- and Qing-period pottery.

"It was conceived as a place for conversation and still is," Bolke says. "There will be all the T Room favorites, slightly tweaked, and a few future favorites."
