3 In Upcycling


I wanted to share with you my new favorite consignment store in Dallas.  Give and Take.  Located on Riverfront in the Dallas Design District, Give and Take consigns high end classics from the 50’s to the 80’s along with funky accent tables, art, lamps and more.  Owner, Jean Nelson takes great care in arranging small vignettes throughout the shop to showcase her great collection–but don’t skip the back room where you’ll find more treasures waiting to hit the floor.

Check out the Vladimir Kagan sofa above covered in a slinky faux python.

This pair of chrome lamps retails for $700.

Stunning red velvet from the backroom.

I love this pineapple based table and chairs.

Perfect chairs!

Trio of vases….

In the front window.

Modern take on a windsor chair.


Another piece of Kagan.

I don’t think my camera could do justice to all of the wonderful things I saw on my last visit to Give and Take, so if you’re in the Dallas Design District, stop by and have a look for yourself!

    Dying for those red velvet slipper type chairs! Those would be perfection in an all white closet with accents of black!

    I sure wish you lived in Los Angeles so you could tell me where are the cool hidden stores are here! Love those chrome lamps!
