Inside Dwell With Dignity’s Thrift Studio 2021 — Glimpse the Striking Designer Vignettes

Feast Your Eyes Then Make a Shopping Game Plan

BY // 08.11.21

One of our favorite shopping experiences in the city is officially back. Thrift Studio, the annual fundraiser from Dallas-based non-profit Dwell With Dignity, taps top interior designers, local artists, and high-end brands to create a series of striking vignettes where everything is for sale (at phenomenally low prices). The annual pop-up shop offers some of the most feel-good shopping you can do in Dallas — all proceeds go toward DwD’s mission to create soothing, inspiring spaces for those struggling with poverty, plus, you can refresh your own home without breaking the bank.

To help you prepare before the annual event, which opens to the public in the Design District on August 27 (a ticket-required preview party will be held on Thursday, August 26), we’re offering a glimpse into each designer vignette. Take a tour of the stylish spaces and draw up your home décor shopping game plan accordingly.

The Collective

The sunny shop in Lakewood is one of the best boutiques to shop for one-of-a-kind pieces in Dallas. Feminine and sophisticated, The Collective’s vignette is an apt reflection of the brand.
