Mecox Gardens: A Stylish Addition to Houston


Mecox Gardens recently opened its eighth location in Houston. Located in Highland Village, the 8,000 square foot emporium of chic wares is a welcome addition to our city. The store carries many styles of furnishings, art, accessories, lighting, and antiques. There is literally something for everyone's aesthetic. I love Mecox because it is evident that every single piece in the store is thoughtfully selected. Despite the fact that so many styles are present (Swedish, Mid-Century, Hollywood Regency, Industrial, Traditional, Asian), they all work beautifully together. If I had my way, along with unlimited funds I would purchase every last item for my home at Mecox!

A section of the massive store... It is a design enthusiast's dream!


I thought this vignette was beautiful. The desk, chair, and lamps are fantastic!


A serene palette with hints of turquoise

An incredible horse triptych, rustic table, and Eiffel towers

Antique Asian Buffet, Christopher Spitzmiller Lamps, and Zebra Mirrors...need I say more?
There are so many incredible pieces in this photograph. I especially love the framed roman sketches on the wall.

This buffet is one of my favorite pieces in the store. The velvet and nailhead mirrors are so lovely in person.

The store is filled with unique chandeliers, both antique and reedition.

I love the color palette here. The brown from the zebra ottomans and owl painting and the orange from the gorgeous lamps. Such a rich combination!

The "cash wrap" as it's called in retail speak is rather stylish, naturally.

Mecox is home to a variety of great accessories, a plethora of must-have design books, and tables that are custom-made from reclaimed wood or concrete.

More orange and brown, as well as Asian influences

There are so many pieces in this room that I just love! The bed, the convex mirrors, the mirrored bedside tables, the gorgeous turquoise lamps...

A more contemporary look featuring bright red Spitzmiller lamps and printed hyde faux zebra pillows

A series of fabulous mirrors and a pair of very unique lamps

This vignette looks so cozy and inviting to me. It's ultra-stylish without being pretentious.

I thought these busts were so cool! I saw something very similar, but made of leather at the San Francisco Decorator's Showcase House this year.

The mercury glass lamps seen here were among my favorite in the store.


Thank you to Bernadette and everyone else at Mecox for being such gracious hosts!

I must make a trip out to a location ASAP.
