Twice a year, Houston is treated to one of the very best home décor and design markets around: DASH (an acronym for Design-Art-Style-Home). This expertly-curated, four-day event brings some of the best local and national vendors of antiques, art, textiles, clothing, jewelry and more to Houston, producing a market that’s versatile, comprehensive, and just plain fun. DASH Spring Market launches at Silver Street Studios on Thursday, April 26 and runs through Sunday, April 29—circle those dates in red on your calendar!
This spring, DASH is shaking it up by spotlighting a trend we can all raise a glass to: martini tables. These darling accent pieces bring a splash of sass and class to any room—they’re the furniture equivalent to Cary Grant, and who doesn’t want that?
Get a first look at the selection of martini tables, plus additional wares from the market’s 80 unique dealers, on Thursday night from 6 to 9 p.m. with the First DASH preview party. Sip on libations from Tito’s Vodka, Calamity Gin, and Manuscript Cellars wines while you enjoy live music, snack on light bites provided by Island Grill, and get inspired by the gorgeous selection. The evening will benefit Aspire Accessories, a program of Social Motion, Inc. which works with young adults with autism.
Hit the market on Friday starting at 11 a.m., and take it all in. The evening will culminate in a “Drink It All In” Happy Hour from 5 to 7 p.m., during which you can enjoy half-priced entry and a complimentary glass of wine while you shop. DASH opens its doors again on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with an array of exclusive workshops—like a “Make It and Take It” floral and succulents arranging workshop, DIY Doormats with The Rustic Brush!, and more—taking place throughout the day. Be sure to sign up and take advantage of tips and trends from the experts.
Wrap up the weekend with Stroll & Shop Sunday Funday from 2 to 4 p.m., when families with strollers can take advantage of discounted ticket prices.
