Destinations LOCAL DESIGNERS DISH ON THEIR FAVORITE STORES AND SOURCES

This vibrant aqua hand-painted antique side table was recently spotted at Nadeau in Rice Village.

Part of the glitz and glamour of living in our big city is the great number of shopping destinations and stellar resources for furniture and accessories.

Find fabulous French accents, such as this metal doughbin with wooden plank top at Vieux Interiors.

These stores and sources showcase brilliantly culled selections of goods that instantly inspire professional designers and browsing homeowners. We asked Houston designers to share some of their favorite sources around town. Here are some fantastic resources from Saima Seyar, ASID, RID, the principal designer for Elima Designs; Marie A. Flanigan, ASID Allied Member, owner of Marie Flanigan Interiors; and Blake Woods, ASID, RID, owner of Blake Woods Design.

OVERALL DÉCOR SOURCES V I E U X I N T E R I O R S : This décor wonderland offers a wide range of antique and modern accessories and furniture. Saima Seyar recommends Vieux for accents, such as fun, unique accent tables and small decorative pieces and candles. “I loved a capiz shell table there,” says Seyar. This favorite of designers is also open to the public at 3701 West Alabama St. #160, 713.626.9500.

This luxurious Ocsar de la Renta Home for Century Furniture is one of many furniture finds at Alyson Jon Interiors.
