Lynn Goode is back.

Lynn Goode is back, and she’s not playing around. Since closing her namesake Carlos Jimenez-designed gallery on Colquitt back in 1997, she moved to Marfa, started the Marfa Book Company and co-founded the Goode-Crowley Theater. Now she once again makes her presence known in Houston with Lynn Good Vintage, Furniture + Decorative Arts, a pop-up gallery on Montrose offering a highly edited array of pieces with a pedigree. The collection, which she’s acquired over the past couple of years, is astonishing in its breadth and quality, and best described as rarefied mid-century. Case in point: a poignant Klismos chair and Klini chaise designed by T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, designer and decorator to the likes of Doris Duke and Alfred Knopf. The inventory also includes pieces from modernist masters Frank Lloyd Wright, Adrian Pearsall, Charlotte Perriand, Mies van der Rohe and Tommi Parzinger. Get a first look during Goode’s introductory open house Saturday, May 4, 10 am to 6 pm. 4411 Montrose Blvd, 713.522.5252;
