Ceylon et Cie
1319 Dragon St., Arts District
Michelle Nussbaumer, the interior designer we collaborated with on the first goop pop-up, has a not-to-be-missed showroom of her own. The best part is that it is literally packed to the gills, which makes it feel like an amazing treasure hunt. Nussbaumer has nailed a distinctly Texan brand of luxury. You’ll find an eclectic mix of antiques of all ages and styles (her eighteenth-century French tabletop is particularly great), sitting next to African and Middle Eastern tribal relics, mid-century modern furniture, and Nussbaumer’s own line of contemporary designs. Anyone in the market for top-quality antiques, including copious varieties of porcelain chinoiserie, would want to move in here.
Cabana
4711 W. Lovers Ln., University Park
This store was once literally housed in a cabana on owner Merry Vose's property. However, when her covert, by-appointment operation was shut down by the city, she took her fan base to Lovers Lane. It's equally easy to miss there, which only adds to the allure and sense of discovery upon spotting the unmarked lavender door. The same mix of pretty, affordable labels—MiH, Monrow, Steven Alan, Nili Lotan—abounds. Vose has since opened a bigger sister store, Canary.
Madison
45 Highland Park Village, Highland Park
Run by interior designer sisters Kirsten Fitzgibbons and Kelli Ford, this shop is one of the city's best resources for great gifts. They carry Baccarat crystal, Mottahedeh ceramics, and an array of kids' books and coffee table books, but what sets them apart is their personalization service—they’ll monogram, emboss, or engrave pretty much anything. (In fact, they’re doing the monogramming for everything at the goop pop in every conceivable color, including neons.)
