After a getting a new brand, the antique emporium in the Dallas Design District formerly known as Donald J. Embree Antiques celebrated its new moniker with a soiree benefiting Dwell With Dignity last month. The interior design community fell in love with the store, now Embree & Lake, all over again inside its beautiful digs at 1115 Slocum Street. The shop, which just turned 54, hosted the biggest names in Dallas design, including Kenneth Craighead, Loyd Taylor, Sherry Hayslip, John Phifer Mars, David Salem, Peggy Levinson, and Lisa Robison.

To highlight the evening, shop owner Marc Lake toasted Donald J. Embree, who founded the namesake business. With Don’s passing and his grace, Marc committed to carrying on the well-known collection and keeping it current. The whole bash not only shed light on Embree & Lake’s stunning selection of furnishings and unique accessories, but also highlighted the great work that nonprofit Dwell With Dignity is doing.
