Marge Carson - A Heritage That Matters

We’re big fans of Marge Carson and it’s no secret why. ‘I won’t purchase a piece of merchandise for the showroom unless I would have it in my own home. If it’s not good enough for my house, it’s not good enough for my clients.’ – J. Douglas

Marge Carson’s line of fresh, creative and stylish furniture with high-quality craftsmanship is a perfect fit at J. Douglas Design. We only choose the best quality and most unique pieces for our showroom and to use in our interior design.

Marge Carson's fine furnishings reflect a decidedly elegant yet casual look, one with generously proportioned silhouettes upholstered with the finest, most luxurious textiles and showcasing intricate, sculpted, architecturally-based designs that are as exquisite as they are functionally distinguished.

Further defining each individual piece is their ability to customize. Old World or contemporary, formal or relaxed, they offer over 550 distinctive fabrics and leathers and 50 decorative finishes in warm, neutral color palettes. These are complimented with dozens of exquisite trims and embellishments. Their hardware is custom designed for location and item. Create your unique comfort. Think of it as d├ęcor without limits.

From their home office in California, they employ skilled artisans from around the world to hand craft fine furnishings with devoted attention to every sculpted detail. J. Douglas Design is Dallas' exclusive retailer of Marge Carson fine home furnishings and we couldn’t be more proud to offer this exquisite line of fine furnishings. One visit to our Dallas furniture showroom will convince you as it has us.

Wallpaper Making A Comeback in 2012

Bold graphic wallpaper is at the top of the must-have decorating trends expected to make a splash this year.

Throughout the years, wallpaper has been a bit of a taboo subject in the world of interior design. Majorly popularized throughout the 1950s, 60s, and 70s, midcentury design showcased a phalanx of wallpaper putter-uppers. Over the years, wallpaper petered out as neutral colors took to the stage of wall accenture and later evolved into bolder and more daring looks with vibrant colors and textural treatments. However, with the recent emergence of modern daring looks, wallpaper is making a serious comeback in today’s design world.

Wallpaper isn’t just for stuffy formal dining rooms or outdated powder rooms. Papered walls have gotten a modern update in recent years. For those wary of committing to a wallpaper pattern, try using a decorative stencil instead. Stencils are an ideal option for decorators who are renting, since the graphics can easily be painted over.
