Best Furniture Store (2005)

The English Pine Company

So it's not really a store. After owning retail shops in East Dallas and Plano for more than 25 years, Harry Walker has been there, done that. But his well-earned retirement lasted only a couple of weeks. Now Walker's "showroom" is a barebones warehouse space in northeast Dallas, where he offers antique English pine furniture to designers and the public at the same price. In addition to imported furniture, Walker now indulges his love of woodworking by crafting pine pieces to order: TV cabinets, armoires, beds, tables, bookshelves and china cabinets in styles that might be found in an old English country home. The showroom is not fancy--he just got air-conditioning--but the quality and prices are unbeatable. His hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. (He's closed on Sunday, when Walker visits his mother.) But it's a good idea to call ahead and make sure he hasn't dashed out on an errand. It's that kind of place.
