It's all about the big 3-0 for Ylang 23's Joanne and Charles Teichman. Late last year, the queen and king of throwing parties hosted an epic bash at Capera Ryan's 171 Oak Lawn to honor their jewelry emporium's 30th anniversary, with a stylish crowd of friends and a collection of Andy Warhols from Christie's, brought in for the occasion. Growing from its former Galleria boutique to its current Preston Center digs, Ylang 23 has become beloved over the past three decades for its edited collection of designer baubles from Jennifer Meyer, Irene Neuwirth, Cathy Waterman, Monique Péan and more, and for the Teichmans' philanthropic efforts (the Phillips Academy, The Family Place and North Texas Food Bank's Food 4 Kids are a few of their faves). After combing through her archives — which we can only imagine are incredibly extensive and filled with fabulous nostalgia — the incomparable Joanne selected these photos that reminded her of how far they've come.

Hauck, a renowned collector of Art Deco antiques and the brain behind her namesake line, is famous for her celeb-frequented Melrose Avenue boutique in L.A. Martin Scorsese hand-picked pieces from Hauck's shop for the set of his Oscar–winning move The Aviator, and Gucci, Saint Laurent and Dolce & Gabbana have all called on her for furniture to use in ads and commercials. The Nash-Hauck connection sparked earlier last year, while Nash was window-shopping in L.A. Lured inside by the gleam of polished veneer, Nash drooled over the store's curvaceous furniture, inlaid and veneered in exotic Macassar, rosewood, ivory and gold leaf. "I'm attracted to beautiful veneer like a bear is to honey," Nash says. "It was the sexiest furniture I'd ever seen." Soon afterwards, Nash and Hauck inked an agreement to bring her collection to his Dallas Design District showroom, where eight designs are currently carried, including chairs, coffee tables, consoles and lighting. "She's the real deal," says Nash of Hauck, who oversees production of her collection in the U.S. and in Germany, where the intricate inlays and veneers are made. "I put her in the same league as Michael Taylor and Christian Liaigre. They're all purists." Born in Germany, Hauck started collecting antique French Art Deco pieces in the '70s at age 21. She later opened two stores there, showcasing original designs by the masters of the era, Jules Leleu, Émile- Jacques Ruhlmann, Jean Dunand, Josef Hoffmann, Louis Süe and André Mare (Süe et Mare), Maurice Dufrêne and Mercier Frères — all procured from such lofty places as mayoral offices in Paris and Lyon and the villas of famous playwrights and conductors. After relocating to Los Angeles in 1998, Hauck launched her own line in 2003, inspired by the best of French Art Deco. While she is a purist at heart, Hauck is quick to remind that she doesn't copy furniture. "It has to be beautiful," she says, "but it also has to be functional. Antique pieces are not always functional." Still, that glittering era maintains its hold over her: "Art Deco," she says, "is my life." To the trade at George Cameron Nash, Dallas Design District, 1025 N. Stemmons Freeway, Suite 150, 214.744.1544, Rebecca Sherman Cedar Nation: One of the most anticipated stories this year is the renaissance of The Cedars. Read these pages next month for a timeline. Fresh activity comes from Ro2 Art, curated by mother-son duo Susan Roth Romans and Jordan Roth, which pops up in the former RE Gallery (1717 Gould Street) with "Uncertain Places," in which promising Dallas-based artists Ken Craft and Adam Neese serve up witty takes on Mother Nature via painting and photography, respectively (closing reception, Saturday, February 20; through February 21). But there's more: Ro2 opens in its temporary new Cedar digs (where they'll be until moving into the new MAC complex) Friday, February 19, at 1501 S. Ervay Street in a turn-of-the-century pharmacy reborn into a white cube, presenting Sonali Khatti and Scott Winterrowd (through March 19). Site131 in Our Sights: Also coming next month is the accomplishment of another mother and son, Joan and Seth Davidow — the big reveal of Site131, an eagerly watched nonprofit at 131 Payne Street in the Design District, two blocks north of the Calatrava Bridge. Expect four annual exhibitions on the level of the just-wrapped debut that brought together Texans Marjorie Schwarz and Arthur Peña alongside NY-based Lauren Muggeo, united by the act of painting. Life on Mars: You've got to love a space named after a Martian land mass. Cydonia Gallery (a neighbor of the new Site131) mounts smart, independent shows, such as this month's international offering: Swedish-born, Mexico City–based Oscar Berglund, who travels to Dallas to create an installation. His first American solo ruminates on the concept of modern ruins through sculpture, painting and architecture. Word's out the artist is concocting a pond in the gallery to realize his vision (through March 19). Perfume + Bats: Kudos to Cris Worley Fine Art for recognizing the quiet genius of Texas talent Celia Eberle. For decades, she's intently carved out a niche with strange, surreal and highly original sculpture and installations. Catch her latest, which involves giant perfume bottles and flights of bats, a solo that's just in time for Valentine's Day: "The Mythology of Love" at CWFA (through February 13). Three Candles on the Cake: Laura Rathe Fine Art's aptly titled group roundup "Momentum" conveys the energy and traction that this Design District destination has garnered in its first three years in Dallas. (LRFA also owns two art spaces in Houston, making it the only dual-city gallery in Texas). Among its best bets are Austin-based Meredith Pardue's expansive canvases, which hone in on rocks in a creek bed (February 20 – March 26). More hot art topics at Catherine D.

"We decided to skip the celebration for 20 and go right to 23, which is when we renamed the store Ylang 23 from Ylang-Ylang," she says. "It was retro to 1985, and I was happy in my beloved Prada leather carwash skirt. Charles sprayed his graying hair black, and we had a great time with family and friends." Left: "I am drenched in Cathy Waterman with my proud mother," says Joanne. "My hair was post-chemo, and I was happy to have it!" Right: Charles and Joanne Teichman in 1986. "This was the opening of the Crescent and our store," Joanne says. "I was pregnant with [my daughter] Alysa and had bought a Sonia Rykiel at Loretta Blum. Dallas flooded that night in a big way, but everyone who was anyone came!"
