Living Beautifully Review
“We hired Michelle to do a refresh of an under-utilized ‘flex’ room and our master bedroom and she was simply amazing. She gave us multiple options for a new layout for the flex room, and then once we decided on one, she made up boards with different furniture and design options for us to pick from. Similarly, she helped us execute a design for an accent wall in our bedroom and selected beautiful linens and accents. She made the design process so simple and let us be involved exactly as much as we wanted to be. She also worked within a budget. I highly recommend her for any project.”

Paxton Place Design has locations in Fort Worth and Dallas, Texas. They offer their clients interior design plans with an emphasis on functionality, attention to detail and aesthetic sophistication.
Paxton Place Design Review
“Paxton Place designs did an amazing job with my living room design. It is an odd-shaped room that has always had a lot of dead space. They were able to take furniture pieces I had and use them in different ways that I love. All of their recommendations fit my taste perfectly. They were extremely polite and so easy to work with. I am looking forward to working with them in the future.”
- Ginger Baker
Margaret Chambers and her team love to collaborate with their clients to come up with the perfect, professional design for their household needs. She offers a number of design style options to her clients - from modern high-rise living to charming Hill Country escapes to Country French Homes.
Chambers Interiors & Associates Review
“Margaret and Allen helped me decorate a music room, family room, dining space, master bedroom, guest room and halls. I love the final product! Margaret took the time to listen to me. She looked at pictures of what I liked and directed me to other pictures when I didn’t have any ideas. Together, we were able to blend my style with my husband’s and ended with a home that feels comfortable and child-friendly, while still holding quality pieces and a classic style.
I am particularly impressed with Margaret’s abilities to remember spaces and colors, visualize pieces as parts of a whole, and then put it all together as an artist!
Allen is also a gifted designer and was able to add details that really give the space some pizzazz. Overall, I find that everyone at Chambers Interiors is kind, professional and responsive. Pricing in our project was always upfront and straightforward; phone calls were always answered and returned immediately. I would definitely use Chambers Interiors for another project in the future."

Starting out as a home stager, Lindsey Murillo transitioned into interior design, now offering clients in the Dallas-Fort Worth area Full-Service Design, or a Designer for a Day, to help them transform their space.
Lindsey Murillo Interiors Review
“Lindsey has been great to work with. She listens to our suggestions and, when appropriate, works them into the design or shows us a better solution. This is the first time I have worked with a designer and it has definitely helped open my eyes to designs I would not have appreciated before. I am very pleased with our new kitchen and master suite. Lindsey is very responsive to any emails or phone calls and is very professional. I would highly suggest her to anyone looking for design advice or help with a remodel.”

Adobe Interiors is located in Fort Worth, Texas, and offers high-quality leather home furnishings in a range of styles. You can see the products in store or request something custom.
Adobe Interiors Review
"Adobe Interiors deserves five out of five stars. This is high-end quality and they deliver on the price tag. I look forward to seeing this furniture for years to come wherever I live. Heidi was my go-to in the buying process. She did much more than sell, but helped me decide on ways to maximize the space in my own home.
Originally, I was drawn to the Urban Architect Sofa (which is amazing!), and she helped me build the room around that piece. There were hundreds of texts and pictures, measurements, and other communications to make this the best it could have been. The Ivena Sofa Table sitting across the sofa is a beautiful piece that ties the whole living room together. The chest coffee table and rug underneath all outstanding pieces. Thanks to Adobe for an amazing product and service!”

There’s No Place Like Home Review

While many furniture stores have a few customization options when it comes to the furniture you find in their showroom, Interior Define says instead of offering only a few customization options, they offer thousands - still at an affordable price, too.
You can visit their Define Studio in Dallas, Texas.
Interior Define Review
“I was so impressed with everything at Interior Define! The showroom was gorgeous and everyone was so helpful. We worked with Monica and she was the absolute sweetest - so patient and knowledgeable about everything. The process for making my selections and getting my sofa ordered was super smooth.

If you love modern and contemporary designs, be sure to visit Cantoni in Dallas, Texas. They opened in 1984 to offer modern and contemporary furniture designs to their customers. They work with leading design houses and emerging designers when selecting furniture and accessories to offer customers who walk through their doors. Not only can you find furniture at Cantoni, but they also offer lighting options, artwork, kitchen cabinetry and even closet systems.
"We’ve made a few purchases from Cantoni and have always been satisfied with the service, and especially the quality of their furniture. The showroom is inviting, and well-thought-out. I, especially, love the kitchen design area. Granted, the prices are on the higher end, but the quality is phenomenal (If you have to move, be sure you have VERY strong movers, because the furniture is HEAVY). You can also customize certain pieces, particularly sofas. Salespeople are always knowledgeable, friendly, and will spend as much (or as little) time as you would like - definitely not aggressive or pushy. We’re not rich or wealthy, so shopping here can’t be a regular event. But, when the budget allows, we will certainly purchase our furniture at Cantoni.”

8 Popular Home Stores in Texas
We definitely wanted to feature our local home stores first to help support these smaller businesses. They have a lot of pieces you won’t see in other places, which will offer something unique to your home.
However, we would be remiss to not mention some of these other more popular home stores that can be found throughout the U.S., including the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The furniture and decor you’ll find here you will likely see in other homes around Texas, but their products are also usually of great quality at affordable prices.
If you want more of an around-the-world, modern look for your home, check out your local World Market in Fort Worth or Dallas. Become a rewards member for additional discounts around the holiday and your birthday.
While you won’t necessarily find home furniture or home decor at the Container Store, they have a lot of great products to help you organize your home - from your kitchen to closets and bathrooms to the kids’ toys and games. You can visit your local Fort Worth or Dallas Container Store for more ideas.
Don’t forget your 20% off coupon when you visit Bed Bath & Beyond. This is a great place to go for new bedding, towels, kitchenware and more to help furnish your new home. You can visit your local Fort Worth or Dallas store.
Target has some great, affordable furniture and home decor, and while you can find most of their stuff in stores across the United States, enjoy shopping the designs and products of Texas’s local Fix and Flip experts - Chip & Joanna - in their Hearth & Hand with Magnolia line at Target.
Even more affordable than shopping for furniture at Target is Walmart, where you can also support a local Texas business when you shop the My Texas House line. You might remember My Texas House from our best Home Bloggers article.
My Texas House offers some great home design tips and advice on their website and Instagram pages. They have recently produced a furniture line that you can shop online or in stores at Walmart. Be sure to check it out at your local Fort Worth and Dallas stores.
