Wisteria is one of our favorite shops, both online and in the bricks-and-mortar form. On a recent stop-in, we saw amazing vintage Kantha cloths, a stitching style used to make simple quilts in India that began when Bengali women mended cloth using colorful threads from their saris. Each is, of course, one of a kind, and about 60 x 90 inches (up to $129). Next to these cloths was the Raj chair in hammered silver metal over a wood frame ($149). It’s a replica of a small veranda chair used by past royal families in India. The cushion is covered in a Kantha cloth; chairs are very limited quantity. We also discovered these delicious decorative papers for the holidays, some vintage, in sheet sizes about 19 by 27 inches ($4 to $5 per sheet). These treasures are in-store only. Aren’t we the lucky ones to have Wisteria based in Dallas! 6500 Cedar Springs, Suite 100, 214.350.3115; wisteria.com.
