A Visit to Mecox Gardens in Dallas

This week I had a quick trip into Dallas, in Monday and out Wednesday but had a chance to squeeze in a visit to Mecox Gardens. Really, really wish they would consider opening a store in the Washington DC area.
Aren't these carved Rhinos cute?



Great industrial table - love the triangular shape.


These bedside tables have mirrored interiors.
Reminds me of Andrew Law's eagle at the DC Design House.


Finally, these great square shaped match boxes for only $5. I treated myself to 4 and then when I got to the airport realized it was probably prudent to empty out all the matches. (I only take carry-on) Good news is I can put grocery store matches inside and, in the end, I really only bought them for the pretty covers!

I've heard so much about this store and hope to pay them a visit in Florida this month. And I never thought about matches and carry-on baggage on flights. I'll keep that in mind when I'm checking out those lovely matchbook covers!

I love so much of the stuff in these photos, ESPECIALLY the lamps in the first photos and that metal table with the little boxes...

What a nice shop - I loved the Mecox in Houston - such interesting unusual things and a reasonable price point it seemed. Very worldly well-travelled looking things....

Sanity Fair said...

SUCH great pieces! I see so many classics there - and a few new things to excite as well. I wish they'd move to DC too - that would be too easy!

i also want the salvage mirror and if those two blue chairs are as comfy as they look - no price is too great.

I agree it is a fantastic store. I visited their LA store at Cienega Blvd last summer. Wanted to ship most of the content overseas :)

Place one matted light pandora Jewelry left of the area for jewellery, and one to the right. pandora sale Place reflector light near where the camera is. Whatever you do, avoid mixing light types. pandora charms Use only non-fluorescent lights, and isolate your photo 'lab' away from natural light. pandora bracelets To have freedom with many settings that will be a must, we will have to use longer exposures. For longer exposures to pandora bracelet achieve maximum sharpness, we'll need a tripod. pandora bracelets sale Our hand shakes too much, when camera runs at exposition Buy a 'tripod' for You don't need a heavy duty tripod. pandora bangles If your setup will be on a desk, you can chose mini tripod - approx and stand tripod on the pandora necklaces desk as well, or longer tripod, approxand stand it on the floor. pandora beads Two desk lamps with soft light irrelevant if you are using photo tent -- the tent is there to soften the light and reflector light at the front. pandora earrings I keep the cube open at the front, for easier adjustments and photographs, unless jewellery is highly reflective of the image of me taking photograph. Uniform background colour is recommended. White background works great.
