We were invited to check out the new 1,350-square-foot Taylor Burke Home showroom inside ADAC before it officially opens on Wednesday, September 30. Located on the fifth floor of the design center, Julianne Taylor’s chic and classic pieces wow at every turn. With pops of color, like orange, turquoise and pink throughout, each furnishing offers up a fresh vibe. “We are risk takers. Our pieces are bold, colorful and in your face,” says Julianne, founder of Taylor Burke Home. “I want to design statement pieces that are on-trend, but not trendy. I take elements that are hot and popular and create timeless and beautiful pieces.”
With an array of haute home décor to choose from, we selected our top five favorites in the bunch. From the best-selling Kings Grant Chair to the Don’t Fret Pendant Light, each stylish item shines.
Kings Grant Chair
Thanks to a pair of vintage chairs Julianne scooped at a flea market in Paris, the Kings Grant Chair was born. Offered in four signature shades (cobalt, coral, ebony and charcoal), the sustainably harvested Tupelo wood chair comes with soy-based recyclable cushions and can be upholstered with your own fabric or one from Taylor Burke Home. If you go with a fabric from TBH, try the new Lacefield for Taylor Burke Home, which was made exclusively for the company. Pricing starts at $2,300.
Don’t Fret Pendant Light
Letting fashion serve as her number one inspiration, Julianne created this light fixture after being mesmerized by the posh rivets placed on Burberry motorcycle jackets during a past New York Fashion Week. “My process always starts with fashion,” she says. “I read lots of magazines and am always trying to figure out what’s next. Fashion always translates to home décor.” Showcase the pendant lighting’s laser-cut fretwork with rivet detailing in any room of the home and you’ll be sure to impress your guests. Pricing starts at $1,975.
This American-made accoutrement is a collaboration between Taylor Burke Home and The Detroit Wallpaper Company. The brushed gold or brushed stainless steel showstopper comes with an assortment of acrylic panel inserts (including fun, geometric patterns, such as amazing, chevron, fretwork, and gold rush) located at each side of the metal-framed table. Special touch? You can order a custom frame color for your console. We really like the magenta pink, violet, colonial blue and sunset orange hues. Find it for $2,995.
Times Two Design Lamp
Julianne believes in mixing furnishings, so she had no problem teaming with Times Two Design by Lauren Renfrow for the brand’s Mother Nature-inspired look. Handcrafted by artisans in Dallas, this Glamazon lamp with agate is meant to be a conversation starter. “For this new line, I collaborated with all women-owned brands,” she says. “I want everyone’s products to shine.” And no matter what space you put this lamp in, it most certainly will. (Times Two Design also showcases its acrylic boxes with agate, acrylic agate trays and other not-to-be-missed crystal vases with agate inside the new showroom.) Find it for $990.
Small X Bench
“This line reflects me,” Julianne says. Many of the items you’ll see in ADAC’s TBH can be found in her own home. Statement pieces like the Blake Accent Table, Dallas sofa, Don’t Fret Pendant Light, Beaufort Bamboo Chair and the X benches decorate her digs. Her brushed brass with zebra print hair on hide small X bench is perfect for a powder room. And if you place a couple of the small X benches together, they can serve as a coffee table. Fun fact: “Today Show” news anchor Natalie Morales’ New York City dressing room was outfitted with an X bench. Find it for $1,095.
