HOUSTON – Ballard Designs, an omnichannel retail company that designs and sells home furnishings and accessories with a European influence, is opening a new brick-and-mortar location in Houston.

“We’ve been serving Houston designers and homeowners for 35 years through our catalog, so we already have a large following here,” said Dominic Milanese, Ballard Designs senior director of retail.

The new retail store will be located in the Rivers Oaks Shopping Center and is scheduled to open early next year, most likely in February. The affluent shopping district is home to many well-known design shops and furniture stores.

“Studies have shown that shopping is one of the top 10 things to do in Houston,” Milanese continued. “And at Ballard, we have such a robust assortment, we expect people to love our upholstery and larger furniture pieces, but also to stop in for smaller accessories as well.”

This location will be the company’s 16th brick-and-mortar store since it launched a national retail expansion in 2007. The new River Oaks location will be introduced to Houston shoppers on targeted soft opening days beginning in early 2021 with distancing protocols in place.

“We want everyone to have a great experience, with safety in mind,” Milanese said.

Ballard Designs offers a curation of home furnishings and decor from all periods and provenance with hundreds of custom options as well as the opportunity to receive design advice and inspiration.
