Dean and Deluca Update

From the DMN's Shop Better Here blog:

Is Dean & DeLuca coming to Dallas? Well, we heard just now from D&D CEO Pat Roney, who tells us:

"The only thing we're saying at this point is that we're interested in Dallas. We're looking for a new location there. We don't have a location ID'd at this point, but we hope to be there sooner rather than later."
Of the hot Oak Lawn-Uptown area, he says: "The demographics of that area are strong," especially given its proximity to the disposable incomes of the Park Cities. Mr. Roney acknowledges that because Dallas is so well known as a foodie town, "We'd definitely like to be there -- that's an important area for us."
So ... more on this whenever there's something more to know.

Walls with Stuff

Textured wall tiles seem to be one of this year's trends. I have to wonder if this affect could be replicated directly on the wall or on a large piece of plywood to be installed as wall art? My best guess would be papier mache and some baubles from Sam Moon... I may have to give it a try.

Dean and Deluca Coming to Dallas?

Rumors are flying that Dean and Deluca, the posh NYC gourmet food spot, will be coming to Oak Lawn. See the DMN shopping blog for all the details that were fit to print.
