Sponsor Spotlight: Memorial Antiques & Interiors

Memorial Antiques & Interiors | MAI | Houston, TX | via La Dolce Vita {A Gorgeous Vignette at Memorial Antiques & Interiors in Houston, TX}

I am very pleased to welcome Memorial Antiques & Interiors as La Dolce Vita’s newest sponsor! Memorial Antiques & Interiors, or MAI as design-savvy Houstonians call it, is Houston’s premier resource for beautiful antiques and special vintage finds. MAI has grown significantly since my first visit in 2008, expanding to three stores filled with stunning vignettes curated by a group of more than fifty antique dealers, designers, and decorators. MAI has become a personal favorite shopping destination and a go-to resource for interior designers and smart shoppers in Houston alike. In fact, a few of my decorator friends have booths at MAI that I like to visit as often as possible. At MAI, you’ll find pieces ranging from European antiques to Mid-Century Modern, in categories including accessories, custom lighting, furniture, original art, and  architectural elements.

Be sure to visit often! I like to visit MAI as frequently as I can. It’s a fabulous destination for gathering inspiration and finding that special treasure. In fact, MAI’s famous “Anything Goes” Sale is happening tomorrow and Friday, September 5th and 6th. You can count on dealers bringing in extra inventory, surplus stock, and odds and ends at great discounts.In the meantime, I’ll leave you with a few pieces and vignettes that caught my eye on my most recent visits to MAI.Memorial Antiques & Interiors | MAI | Houston, TX | via La Dolce Vita

I wish I knew about this place when I was in town for my Rice Reunion! I tried to visit many of the stores that the Houston bloggers recommended, but this one was not on my list.

I love that large scale piece of art in particular!
