 The "store" is really a campus that has 100,000 square feet of display space in multiple buildings that take up two city blocks, making it "the largest privately owned design and lifestyle store in Houston," according to the business' website. The upscale spot stocks design items for every room in the house, from large furniture and wall art to candles and seasonal bric a brac.
