The Interior Home + Design Center is a new, 220,000-square-foot marketplace designed for interior designers and retailers. The space, the redeveloped first floor of the Dallas Market Center, is the largest to-date expansion of home decor showrooms in the city in over four decades. It will open this year.

“We are excited to be able to create a new showroom space that will better showcase our furniture and accessories and capabilities to the interior design community,” says Allen Palecek, founder and CEO of Palecek. “Our new space will be larger, have better access and be visually more appealing. We are happy to join other top name companies in this project.”

“We look forward to creating a new showroom in Dallas, serving a tremendous design business,” shares Mark Phillips, CEO of Phillips Collection. “Reaching qualified customers year-round is more important than ever, so we are pleased to be able to present our unique collections inside a dynamic new space.”

The new space will serve the center’s existing base of 200,000 retail buyers and designers. “Palecek and Phillips Collection are well respected for their stylish products, high-design showrooms and excellent customer service,” says Cindy Morris, president and CEO of Dallas Market Center. “The addition of these two important companies continues our marketplace momentum of setting a new standard in sophisticated building redesign and business innovation by creating a destination with ground-floor, controlled-access showrooms for the design community. Each month, more than 2,000 interior designers visit our campus, and this significant investment in new space for luxury home showrooms will help build even greater traffic to the entire Dallas marketplace.”
