Retail Roundup: A Sprawling New Irving Nursery with Everything Your Garden Could Need

FromD HomeMay-June2023

Newly opened in Irving, Green Acres is the place to be (sorry, not sorry) for gardeners of any skill level. "Anything that you could possibly want in your backyard, we’re going to offer to you," says co-owner Steve Gill. He's not exaggerating: The 126,500-square-foot, California-based outdoor supply shop has a sprawling patio of annuals and perennials—many of which are grown in Tyler—and a backyard of sorts with trees, shrubs, grasses, and more. There's also a planting bar, garden art, and a 4,000-square-foot houseplant greenhouse, where the rarest offerings are kept behind lock and key. Plus, the store offers outdoor furniture, grills, bird feed, soil, and every specialty fertilizer one could dream of. —Catherine Wendlandt

Texas hotelier Liz Lambert's new textile collection was born out of necessity. Taking a beating from the sun and salty air, the outdoor pillows at Hotel San Cristóbal—her property in Todos Santos, Mexico—were having to be replaced every few months. Enter Dallas-based Perennials, known for their indestructible performance fabrics. The two teamed up on a powerhouse collaboration called "Perennials by Far West," inspired by the West Texas and Baja Californian landscape.

Available in five striped patterns in a variety of bright colors, the collection's textiles are woven in acrylic yarn and are UV-, fade-, and mildew-resistant, perfect for indoor-outdoor living. "I hope the collection gives people the ability to live in their spaces without fear of wrecking the furniture," Lambert says. "Be free, get sloppy, spill the wine." —CW

Available to the trade at Sutherland.

Wallpaper is not what it was 30 years ago, says Thibaut CEO Rick Kilmer. He should know. His company, the country's oldest wallpaper and wallcoverings firm (which has evolved to offer fabrics and upholstered furniture, too), has seen it all over its 137-year history. Now more than ever, he says, people have access to fantastic materials and spectacular designs.

That access is now even better in Dallas. Thibaut recently opened its first area showroom—one of only five nationwide and its largest to date—in the Dallas Design District. Open to the trade only, the 5,000-square-foot space displays the full assortment of fabrics and wallcoverings from Thibaut and Anna French, a selection of Thibaut Fine Furniture, as well as self-serve sample walls and collaborative workspaces. Kilmer is excited to show the Dallas design community all the dimensions Thibaut has to offer. "There's a solution for everybody," he says. —CW
