Dallas interior designer Jan Showers champions a delicate glamour--a pale alchemy of silk, glass, books and inventive applications of leather, parchment, mirror and other elements. Showers’s sculptural table lamps on Lucite platforms reveal a penchant for obelisks, Murano glass, crystal ball finials and horizontal shades. "We think of our lamps as jewelry for the home," spokesperson Becky Boylan says, and they have been the most successful aspect of the 3-year-old furniture collection. "Jan made them to work in a wide range of interior styles," Boylan says proudly. "Everyone's copying them."
Jan Showers in Dallas, Texas is the best antique dealer; they specialize in 1920s to 50s French furniture and accessories, and some Italian.
