J essica Pinzon proves that big ideas often start small. Pholio Co — the Euro- style design showroom she launched in 2020 inside a tiny space at the Meadows Building — has taken off in a big way. Recently, Pholio relocated to a roomier spot near the Design District, expanding from 408 to 2,550 square feet. Now there's ample space for the artisan lines from Europe and America that have made Pholio a hit, such as Glasgow artist Iona Crawford's fashion-inspired textiles and natural- stone wall coverings and floors from Italy-based Lithos Design, as well as Look Walls & Interiors of Dallas, which collaborates with local artists. Pinzon has picked up a raft of new names, including Potocco, a fifth-generation Italian furniture maker known for beautiful, European-scaled designs; Lasvit, a Czech lighting designer with roots in the area's long glassmaking history of Northern Bohemia; Erik Lindström, the L.A. rug designer with collaborations with artists Elena Manferdini and Karim Rashid; and Strike, the modern, muscular stone fireplaces designed by Dallas designer Chad Dorsey. "Designers are excited for us to be in a space that's closer to the district," says Pinzon, "but we're in a quirky neighborhood with artists and photographers — we're still honoring who we are, we're just a little more accessible."

Now in its 25th year, Blu Dot was established by college friends Maurice Blanks, John Christakos, and Charlie Lazor — two architects and a sculptor — who sought to democratize good modern design by producing accessible quality furniture and accessories. Blu Dot's award-winning work has been shown at the Museum of Modern Art, the Centre Pompidou, and Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum. The brand introduced a new bedding collection over the summer, expanding the company's soft goods offerings, starting at $125.
