SPECIAL ADVERTISING SECTION T here is Allan Knight the creator, and Allan Knight the brand. A respected designer and the face of his namesake showroom, he and business partner Ben Goldfarb have created a 40,000-square-foot space that's known for its Asian artifacts, muscular acrylic designs and 40 stunning furniture, fabric, wallpaper, and accessories collections, as well Allan Knight collections of furnishings, lighting, textiles, and upholstery. Custom designs for the showroom are often the result of Knight's interior design projects — an endeavor he launched with his life partner, Cearan Henley. Noteworthy additions to the showroom include three designs from the Allan Knight collections: The Pick Up Sticks chandelier, made to order in French gold gilt or aged iron, with tumbling pick-up sticks that cluster in cloud-like formation, available in 36 to 48 inch diameter; the Barbizon tufted sofa, with hyper-exaggerated, semicircular arms and back; and the Savoy lounge chair, with a hand-forged frame finished in French gold. To the trade at Allan Knight & Associates, 150 Turtle Creek Blvd., Suite 101, 214.741.2227, What's in a Name K nown for its artisan-made collection of upholstery, casegoods, beds, lighting, art, rugs, furniture, and accessories, Ebanista's new chair, the Jesi arm chair, is a whiff of Karen Blixen and a dash of Humphrey Bogart — upholstered in zebra-hide with a hand-carved, dark-walnut frame and nailhead trim. Ebanista's unique interpretation of European classic furnishings and attention to detail is owed to Melinda and Fari Pakzad, founders of Ebanista and the company's lead design duo. The Pakzads have painstakingly developed a retinue of worldwide craftsmen — weavers, foundry artisans, guilders, silversmiths, artists and furniture makers — to create Ebanista's wide-ranging furniture, textiles, rock- crystal chandeliers, mirrors, ceramics, and more. To the trade at Ebanista, 1025 N. Stemmons Freeway, Suite 400, 214.760.7677, V eniceM is the newest name to join Holly Hunt's lighting arsenal. Handcrafted by Italian artisans, VeniceM is known for its architectural aesthetic incorporating Murano glass with metal. Three new lights are shining examples of modernism. The Numa hanging light draws inspiration from the austerity and perfection of the geometric columns of ancient Rome, with LED light diffused from above, through handmade glass trihedrons in a burnished-brass frame. Of a more romantic mood is the Pinocchio Floor Lamp, influenced by the classic Florentine fairytale of the same name; horizontal glass trihedrons and Murano glass spheres are anchored to the base, while the arms include LED strips creating a turnable 180 degree light. And the Secret Floor Lamp is burnished brass and black-painted aluminum intersected with hidden lighting. To the trade at Holly Hunt Dallas, 1025 N. Stemmons Freeway, Suite 590, 214.245.4770, Out of Africa … and Elsewhere Illuminating the Way 64 Pick Up Sticks chandelier Savoy lounge chair Numa hanging light Pinocchio floor lamp Barbizon tufted sofa Jesi arm chair
