If there is anything who you can always rely on in Houston, it’s traffic (of course); however, the city is also home to exciting new businesses and one-of-a-kind stores. The Texas Workforce Commission reported that Metro Houston was home to over 160,000 establishments in 2020. Coupled with Houston’s Rapid Population Growththe number of businesses in Houston continues to grow.
From storefronts to high-end fashion houses, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for. The possibilities are endless, from local merchants selling handicrafts to out-of-town businesses moving into H-Town. As we slowly move into fall, it’s the perfect time to sniff out some of the new spots that have made (or will soon make) their arrival in Houston.
Here’s what we’re planning for this season:
If you’re a fan of Baybrook Mall, be on the lookout for this new high jewelry spot. Clean Origin was founded in 2017 with a brand name that fits well with the company’s mission, which takes an ethical and eco-responsible approach to jewelry, making all of its pieces with lab-grown diamonds instead of mined diamonds. . The Baybrook location will open in November and is part of the brand’s expansion into Texas, marking the state’s second store, alongside the first in Frisco. A site in the Woodlands should also be available soon.
HGTV fanatics will want the first dibs on this new furniture store. Living Spaces, the California-based furniture store, continues its national expansion with its latest location in Katy, which opened in September. Katy Village’s newest outpost is approximately 148,000 square feet with four custom home styles: Classic Modern Farmhouse, Traditional Spanish Casita, Modern Home, and Rustic Industrial Loft. But perhaps one of the most attractive features of the massive furniture warehouse is that it features curated furniture displays from famous interior designers. Joanna Gaines, HGTV The Property Brothers Drew, and Jonathan Scott, and Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent of TLC Nate and Jeremiah by design all have purchasable displays throughout the store. As the autumn/winter season approaches, the new location is an essential step for the much-needed redesign of the show.
The Gallery is always changinglike last year pop star Rihanna’s SavagexFenty store surprise Now the trendsetters have even more reason to rejoice. Marc Jacobs recently opened its first storefront on the first floor of the Houston Galleria, next to Tag Heuer and Nespresso. The boutique is Marc Jacobs’ first full-service boutique in Texas, and inside you’ll find popular items like the cult tote bag, ready-to-wear, and fragrances.
Meyerland puppies can now be pampered regularly at the recently opened Scenthound, the nation’s first wellness-focused routine grooming and dog care franchise. The grooming studio, which opened in July, focuses on the five main areas of maintenance of man’s best friend: skin, coat, ears, nails and teeth. Pet parents can purchase affordable subscriptions for their dogs to receive routine care.
Rice Village Shopping District
We watched closely celebrities moving to houston and one thing we’ve noticed is that their favorite companies tend to follow. Studs is Houston’s newest jewelry store and ear piercing bar, located in the bustling Rice Village shopping district. The brand is a favorite among A-List celebrities like Emma Watson, Selena Gomezand singer Justine Skye. Studs brought its first location to Houston in October, making it the third in Texas. Houston’s studio space offers a unique shopping experience on Amherst Street: the store features beautiful earrings; however, Studs provides a handful of services for ear piercings, checkups, piercing jewelry exchange, and flatback downsizing. Appointments are available, but walk-ins are also welcome whenever you want to step up your earring game.
Houston is undoubtedly a shopping mecca for everything you can imagine. So, with everyone looking to move to town, it’s obvious that Maria Atencio Nebreda and Alejandro Nebreda, owners of Spain-based children’s clothing store Nanos, have opened their latest location in Houston. The luxury brand for children has several storefronts around the world, from Hong Kong to Canada. A handful of public figures dress their children in the brand, including the royal families of Holland, Spain and Monaco. Also located on Amherst Street, the clothing store brings an international flair to the Rice Village mall. Translated into English, the informal meaning of the store is “children”. As you can imagine, the shop offers clothes for the little ones. Outfits range from hand-knit sweaters, corduroy pants and plaid dresses, just in time for the holidays.
If you’ve enjoyed high-thread count hotel bedding, you can create an at-home experience if you swing by parachute. The modern lifestyle brand has everything to change the feng shui in your home. Their motto is “feel good furniture,” and that’s precisely what you get: you can find everything soft and wonderful, from bathrobes to high-quality towels and bedding. The neutral tones and minimal aesthetic add to the relaxing environment of the store and somehow convince you that you should step out with a set of linen loungewear with a matching duvet cover.
