New to the showrooms is Hastings Couture Collection, William Holland English baths, and more ... Jerry Jeanmard and partner Laura Hudson have opened Wells Design showroom and retail storefront at Decorative Center Houston.

Romancing Banality: Nomadic artist Lyle Carbajal touches down at Art League Houston (through March 11). His ambitious exhibition, which opens a week after the inauguration, transforms the nonprofit into everything from an electronics repair shop in Mexico City to a Manila junk shop.
