Studio VISIT S tudio Van den Akker's new showroom in the Dallas Design Center celebrates the spirit of mid-century A vignette at Studio Van den Akker with artist James Bearden's Urchin table and Adriana cabinet by Studio Van den Akker modern with a collection of handmade furnishings with a focus on craftsmanship, designed by Rob Copley and Sean Robins, the team behind Manhattan's coveted Van den Akker Antiques and Galerie Van den Akker. The custom collection includes more than 1,800 designs for tables, seating, case pieces, lighting, and accessories. Studio Van den Akker also represents home-furnishings collections from small- batch artisans with studios, foundries and workshops in the U.S. and around the world — all completely customizable. A special collection with famed Murano glassmaker Seguso includes chandeliers and lamps inspired by their iconic 20th- century designs, as well as glass tables and mirrors. A top-drawer collection of vintage furnishings from the 1920s to the 1970s can be purchased off the floor. Recently we spotted a dazzling 1970s Christian Krekels modernist cocktail table inlaid with brass and lapis lazuli, a pair of colorful plastic Italian 1968 chairs by Rossi Molinari for Totem, and a 1936 red-enameled wall- mounted desk by Jean Prouvé and Jules Leleu. The new Dallas studio shares its 7,000-square-foot showroom space with J.D. Staron custom rugs. Studio Van den Akker, Dallas Design Center, 1025 N. Stemmons Fwy., By Rebecca Sherman.
