Home is your safe place. It's where you hold intimate conversations with loved ones and display meaningful objects. That doesn't make you shallow, just human.
Not everyone has that. Many, like the Dallas families transitioning out of homelessness and poverty, barely have walls. Imagine the increased feeling of pride that a comfortable bed provides? How about a table to eat a meal around? These things matter, and that's why we gave Dwell With Dignity our Dallas Observer award for Best Charity. They furnish those interiors for families in need. They even stick food in the pantries.
Doing good work requires funding, so DWD offers semi-annual sales, like this one opening on Thursday, where you shop discounted and donated designer home goods. Each vignette is arranged with intentional beauty by local pros, and we've got a sneak peek into the showrooms. Check it out now, draw a little inspiration, then gussy-up your nest this weekend. Have to miss the preview? That's alright: Dwell's sale runs for 30 days. Now, let's look inside.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
