NorthPark is 50 years old this year and it remains one of the premier shopping centers in DFW because it holds all those places we want to shop form Neiman’s to Cartier. This week it opened Sundance, one more spot that we’ll be visiting often.

About Sundance

Sundance is the brainchild of actor Robert Redford who founded Sundance Catalog in 1989 to promote artists and craftspeople from all over the world. It began in the attic of the Sundance Village firehouse and has grown to become a major player in the lifestyle genre of the retail world. It’s a style that fits perfectly into our Texas lifestyle of upscale casual in everything we do. You’ll find everything from women’s and men’s clothing and footwear to art and home decor, all reflecting the unique American heritage style updated and refined.

The clothing style is a Boho-Western upscale look that we love.

A Perfect Fit for NorthPark

Matey Erdos, Sundace CEO, said that the company was thrilled to be joining NorthPark Center because of the perfect fit as promoters of the art community. He said, “We have a loyal following in Texas, valued customers who demonstrate a great affinity toward our brand. We are privileged to open our new store among such strong support and are confident it will be a great success.”

A portion of the proceeds from last weekend’s Grand Opening were donated to The Creative Arts Center, an area based non-profit that is committed to building community through art. Erdos explained,  “We are drawn to the organization’s fundamental ideas of cultivating artistic vision at any level of skill or experience and providing an outlet for creative expression in a nurturing environment. These are the building blocks for the great artists of the future.”

So what can you expect?

Unique Clothing, Accessories, and Decor

Unique items abound and they change by the seasons. We loved the Stewart Falls Outdoor Table that was featured in the Spring catalog. It’s made from wood reclaimed from 100 to 150 year old barns found across the midwest. The craftsmen try to use every bit of the old growth wood that they salvage so that nothing is wasted and the result is beautiful.

Many items are created by artisans in war torn, poverty stricken areas.

The Boho-Western styling of the clothes, shoes, and jewlery made us swoon while the home decor had us speed dialing our designer. It’s always a good time to redecorate, right? We especially loved the fact that so many items were handmade by people who directly benefitted from our purchases. For example, we read about the Kantha Stitch Throw, a gorgeous quilt created by women artisans who have come to Thar Desert of Rajasthan, India, after the war between India and Pakistan in 1971. Making these Kantha quilts offers them employment and income independent of a husband which is critical in these drought-affected areas. You can read more about this on the Sundance Blog. it’s very interesting.

The NorthPark Sundance with be the only Sundance store in Texas. Take that, San Antonio.
