TIE: Louis Shanks, Eurway, Aqua

Each of these three Texas-bred home furnishings havens expresses a unique take on Southern style. Louis Shanks is at the high, yet not outrageously, priced end of the type of comfy modern décor you'd expect to see in any number of new model homes, while Aqua's version of "modern" is strictly mid-last-century (among other genres and eras), featuring gorgeous one-of-a-kind museum pieces made by the likes of Herman Miller, Heywood-Wakefield, etc. Eurway seems to bridge the gap a bit with well-made reproductions of classic Fifties-Seventies and original comtemporary style at reasonable (yet not cheap!) prices.
