10Best

We learned yesterday that our store made the USA Today's 10Best list for shopping spots in the Deep Ellum district of Dallas.  Here's what Dallas Local Expert Ilene Jacobs had to say:


Joe and Jennifer Eggleston's boutique furniture store is a treasure trove for retrophiles looking to turn their pad into a celebration of mid-century interiors style. The shop features the crème de la crème of vintage furniture, all refurbished and sold at a fraction of their retail price. Highlights include a mint condition 1957 Eames RAR rocker for $750 and a pair of iconic scoop chairs by Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin at $2,200. But it's not only vintage furnishings you'll find here. As the name suggests, Mid2Mod also offers modern mid-century style furniture and accessories by the Toronto-based design company Gus Modern. If money is tight, hold out for one of Mid2Mod's liquidation sales, sometimes offering up to 75% off on items. A recent clearance had JL Moller's teak Danish dining chairs going for only $100 a piece.


We are excited about receiving this honor, and we're pleased that the resurgence of Deep Ellum as an important shopping venue is gaining so much attention in the media.

Stay tuned over the next few weeks for a major announcement about the new direction our family business will be taking.

Farewell to the "King of the Blues"

Riley Ben "B.B." King
1925-2015

I have loved and listened to the music of B.B. King since I first heard "Driving Wheel." I think it was 1961, and I was 13. Over the decades, B.B. and his guitar Lucille have been constants in my life.

The blues will never be quite the same without him. He will be genuinely missed by many, including me.
