The Faceted Home
Home hardware ranks high on our list of finishing touches that give pow to even the plainest of cabinets. Some designers we know consider them the perfect accessory. Ro Rynd of RM Rynd Interiors and jewelry designer Kori Green are collaborating on a collection called The Faceted Home. With 50 styles in multiple metal finishes, the hooks, pulls and knobs include natural stones, enameled pieces, whimsical designs such as butterflies, and more. All are named after U.S. cities. Rynd and Green found success together with Clearly Handbags, and each brings a honed sense of style to this new project. The shop is located, along with their other businesses, inside LOCAL Design Studios + Gallery (localdesignstudios.com).

Atomic Home Supply
Midcentury aficionados will be happy to know a favorite store is back after disappearing from the Design District last summer. Now open in historic Oak Cliff, the trendy shop has its roots in Fort Worth, the outgrowth of a home garage-based enterprise begun in 2014 by Terri Cirvello and her then-teenage daughter, Haley Taylor. Today Cirvello, a nurse practitioner who cares for ICU COVID patients, runs Atomic Home Supply with help from Taylor’s partner, Turner McDougal. For now, the shop is open only on Saturdays and by appointment. Cirvello says her love of all things MCM began before such things were vintage. Her girlhood affection blossomed into a family business fed by estate sales and auctions. “We’re also a distributor for Hip Haven Bullet Planters and Atomic Foundry Ray-Tone doorbells,” she says. Expect things kitschy and Western, too. “Now that we’re in a bigger space, we’re trying to broaden what we sell.” Most wood pieces are refinished by Hank Tosh of Toshmahal refinishing; ER Woodworks provides new upholstery. Don’t miss the Art-o-mat, a classic cigarette vending machine retrofitted to dispense small artworks. Follow the store’s social media: Facebook, facebook.com/AtomicHomeSupply, and Instagram, @atomichomesupply, for online sales and updates.

Grow Plant Shop
After two years of serving plant lovers out of an Airstream parked on an empty lot off Fort Worth’s Magnolia Avenue, Bobby and Emily Lynge are opening a brick-and-mortar in the Camp Bowie District with a target date of early February (cool signage already is up). With more home dwellers expanding their interior plant repertoire, the Lynges have tapped into a receptive market offering living plants big and small, along with homemade ceramics, planters and other gardening accessories. (The couple and staffers also are knowledgeable about their green babies.) At the new shop, they’ll be able to carry a bigger inventory of mature plants.
