F or years, interior designer Meredith Ellis' showroom, James, which she owns with husband Hunter Ellis, has been a go-to source in Dallas and Houston for lively and sophisticated textiles by a global array of designers such as Carolina Irving, Sister Parish, Lisa Fine, John Robshaw, Casa Branca, and Penny Morrison. Now, Ellis has launched a namesake collection of her own. Four new fabric designs take inspiration from the Texas Hill Country landscape, along with historical, travel, and nature references including nostalgic French designs and stylized flower fields. While Ellis' current focus is on fabric, look for wallpaper to come soon. Also, a new James NYC showroom is planned for an October opening in the Interior Arts Building on the Upper East Side, rubbing elbows with such noteworthy showrooms as Bunny Williams Home, Liz O'Brien Gallery, and Newel. The 4,000-square- foot multi-line showroom will feature collections by McLaurin & Piercy, Ferrick Mason, Carolina Irving & Daughters, Mia Reay, Mahala, and Paolo Moschino, among others.

NATHAN SCHRODER D allas interior designer Denise McGaha looked to her Texas roots when d e s i g n i n g h e r n e w collection for Wildwood. She was inspired by the state's natural beauty (including her family's property in Wise County) for the material, color, and shape for her furniture, lighting, and accessories. McGaha, a popular Instagrammer known for her vibrant interiors and vivacious personality, often collaborates with clients beyond interiors, advising them on landscaping, tabletop, holiday entertaining, custom monograms, and home scents. Product design was the natural next step; in addition to Wildwood, McGaha has launched a collection of stone mantels and sinks for Material. For Wildwood, her products include tables in rift-cut white oak, walnut, and shagreen; lamps in honed marble and brass; and bowls and vases in richly glazed ceramic.
