It’s fall in Dallas and that always means showrooms and stores are gearing up with fresh products and new lines. Here are five of our favorite additions for the upcoming season.

Designer's Guild at ID Collection

Culp Associates
One of Dallas’ oldest multi-line showrooms, Culp has freshened things up with a renovation and expansion that includes a large dedicated space for Gregorius Pineo’s furniture and lighting. Here, old-world methods blend with modern designs to create a rugged but elegant collection. With more than 600 pieces available in 80 different finishes of wood and iron, it’s easy to customize a bespoke look. 1025 N. Stemmons Fwy., Ste. 500, 214.760.8909,

ID Collection
Known for their stellar collection of fabric lines, ID Collection’s fresh shipment of textiles for fall includes Designer’s Guild’s newest floral patterns and hues. Muted lavenders and hydrangea blues are just right for kicking off the season with restrained color, and large scale, modernized floral patterns soften up contemporary rooms without a hint of fustiness. Accented with vibrant greens, it’s a look that will carry you happily through winter’s doldrums. 1025 N. Stemmons Fwy., Ste 745; 214.698.0226,

Scott & Cooner
Always one of the coolest kids on the block for all things contemporary, Scott + Cooner’s recent 5,000-square-foot expansion includes a separate contract showroom that will make it easier to purchase furniture and lighting from Europe for hospitality and commercial clients. For the rest of us, it means an even bigger selection of illuminati including Baccarat, FontanaArte, Tom Dixon, Ingo Maurer and Kartell. The installation of Flos’ Soft Architecture pieces into the walls and ceilings are so sculptural you’ll think you’ve wandered into an art gallery. Fixtures include Soft Spun table and floor lamps that emerge from walls and ceilings; Wall Piercings that mimic glowing hoop earrings; and Fissure, which suggests a crack of molten lava. 1617 Hi Line Dr., Ste., 100, 214.748.9838,

Sherry Hayslip Interiors Boutique
Take home a dazzling and rarified objet sourced by Dallas designer to the uber rich Sherry Hayslip, who has opened a small store inside her Uptown design digs. Hayslip, who travels the globe on shopping trips for clients (think Morocco, Paris and Berlin) bringing back lighting, art, vintage collectibles, jeweled objects, contemporary furnishings and antiques. Look for an assortment of hand painted tôle flowers from Tommy Mitchell that Sherry brought back from New York, and a huge blown-glass and bronze chandelier, crafted in a contemporary twist on the ubiquitous Texas antler chandelier. 2604 Fairmont St., 214.720.0969,

You’ve counted on them to bring the latest, most cutting edge furniture and accessories from Italy since 1989, now you can look to the Smink sisters for fine art to grace your walls. But it’s hardly sofa art. Representing a cadre of top artists such as Richard Hogan, Timothy Hearsum and Gail Reike, Smink does it right, buying works from artists across the country whose work they admire personally—much of it with an edge. On exhibit now through November 17 are Audrey Phillips and Abigal B. Mayfield’s abstractions. 1019 Dragon St., 214-350-0542,
