Inspired Designs for the Home

Interior-design trailblazer Stephanie Odegard is known for reinventing the traditional Tibetan rug for the modern era and, in so doing, began a lifelong commitment to reviving the local artisanal craft traditions in struggling communities around the world. Her latest triumph lies a bit closer to home: a brand-new showroom in Dallas’ latest up-and-coming neighborhood, where warehouses are being converted to sleek showrooms and the city’s new contemporary art museum is set to open.

For the last 22 years, Odegard has been the go-to source for top interior designers in search of room-defining carpets. She employs the talent, techniques, and raw materials of Nepal (where each item is handmade from start to finish) and applies her contemporary, organic, and pared-down aesthetic to produce ready-to-buy and custom carpets that can only be called works of art. During the past decade, Odegard began sourcing objects from around the world--authentic Fortuny lamps from Italy and antiques from faraway lands--and she began collaborating with designers on projects such as lighting collections with architect Alison Spears.

Odegard’s expansive wares will be showcased in her new 4,400-square-foot Texas outpost. For purchase: her woven floor coverings, original furnishings, commissioned lighting fixtures and the new Architectural + Decorative Surfaces collection that features hand-painted cut-glass Persian-inspired motifs.  (214.573.7644, www.odegardinc.com)
