IN THE WORKS Ballard Designs The Atlanta-based retailer is joining what we call the home furnishings and accessories wing at The Shops at Clearfork, which already hosts Arhaus, Z Gallerie, Mitchell + Gold and NuVitrum. Long known as an online retailer, BD moved into the brick-and-mortar business in 2007 and slowly has expanded. Fun fact: Founder Helen Ballard Weeks was the winner of a 1982 contest sponsored by the magazine Metropolitan Home. When her Atlanta condo was featured in the magazine, there was overwhelming response from readers on where to buy her home furnishings. She started the online store the following year with a two-page brochure. Today, BD is big business with its lines of European- and country-chic-inspired goods, along with products for bed and bath, the patio and much, much more. It’s under the umbrella of the corporation that owns Frontgate and Grandin Road. (We all get the catalogs, right?) There has been no announced date for the store opening, but temporary signage has been up for several months. The location is on Monahans Avenue just as you enter the development nearest the Chisholm Trail Parkway. HOME IMPROVEMENT Fort Worth’s bustling Camp Bowie Boulevard sees the addition of two businesses well versed in home amenities. Nestled between boutiques, their new locations make them accessible to interior designers and homeowners. • Stanton & Co.
