Preview Dwell with Dignity’s Home Decor Pop-Up—and Get Ready for Its First-Ever Social Impact Marketplace

by | Aug 17, 2022
From August 26 through September 24, you can upgrade your home's interior design at a discount while helping out a good cause. The annual Thrift Studio pop-up in the Dallas Design District is a key fundraiser for Dwell with Dignity—a nonprofit that changes lives by bringing good design to families who can afford it the least. Plus, this year's event features a first-ever Social Impact Marketplace.

A ticket to the First Look preview party on August 25 provides early access. For some immediate gratification, here's a look at vignettes created pro bono by nine leading Dallas designers, featuring donated high-end home decor items sold at significant discounts, with 100% of sales benefitting Dwell with Dignity’s mission.

by | Jun 1, 2022
Banksy is the world's most elusive and celebrated street artist, an anonymous provocateur whose subversive graffiti often makes headlines wherever it pops up. Later this month, some of his greatest hits will pop up in Dallas for two weekends of officially "unauthorized" immersive showings.

“These have been very challenging years here in the U.S., and we feel that Bansky's work, while often cynical, is also incredibly hopeful,” the curator says.
