Nationally-noted interior designer, Gary Riggs, just hosted the VIP opening of his new 45,000 square-foot retail showroom in Dallas.
Gary Riggs Home — which formerly housed the old Restoration Hardware and Crate & Barrel stores across from the Galleria — is truly a sight to behold, putting Dallas on the forefront of the national design scene. His visions are unlike anything else, as his star-studded celeb clientele often call him a “creative genius.” Gary’s early steps into the industry, included designing sets for the Donnie & Marie Osmond show and the original Footloose movie; however, it is only until recently that he has started to get discovered by the local and national press.

Gary’s creations are never tied down to one style. The new store showcases everything from traditional environments, to modern, to eclectic and more. His designs break rules, melding unlikely colors, fabrics and patterns for an incredible, visually stunning space.
Retail merchandise includes everything from gifts, accessories, furniture, art, bedding and more. Price points can range from $7.50 to $25,000 — as customization of fabrics and upholsteries are available to fit the desires of each client. Each piece is hand-selected by Gary Riggs himself.
