Three new home furnishing retailers will open at the Shops at Clearfork, Fort Worth's coming-soon open-air center being built on the former Edwards Ranch.
The three stores are new to the market and will open in the fall. They'll bring living, dining, bedroom, and office furnishings, along with lighting, drapery, bedding, decor, and art options that have not been present in Fort Worth before.
Founded in 1989 in the rural town of Taylorsville, North Carolina, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams is a 28-year-old home-furnishings company offering eco-friendly, American-made upholstery, as well as tables, storage, lighting, rugs, bed linens, artwork, drapery, and accessories. Texas has four branches of this store in Houston, Plano, Dallas, and Austin.
Z Gallerie is the California-born fashionable home decor chain. The brand celebrates the glamorous, the modern, and the relaxed lifestyle with cutting-edge designs and sophisticated furnishings including art, lighting, mirrors, textiles, and chic outdoor living. There are currently five locations in the DFW area, including Southlake, Plano, Allen, and two in Dallas.
Arhaus offers handcrafted furnishings with a global perspective. Pronounced "our house," the concept combines traditional, sustainable, and forward-thinking practices and collaborates with skilled artisans from around the world to both create and re-create pieces that reflect many cultures from Italy to Indonesia. Clearfork would be Arhaus' second location in DFW; there is currently one at NorthPark Center.
Kathleen Shields, senior VP at Simon, a partner at the Shops at Clearfork along with Cassco Development, proclaims in a release that the shopping experience at Clearfork, boasting home furnishing and specialty stores, entertainment, restaurants, and offices, is unrivaled.
"The addition of these exclusive home furnishings concepts promotes the dynamic retail mix we have tailored for the Fort Worth community," she says.
The Shops at Clearfork's first anchor tenant, Neiman Marcus, opened in February. Restaurants that have been announced include B&B Butchers & Restaurant, Fixe, Malai Kitchen, Mesero, and Luna Grill, plus AMC Theatres and Pinstripes.
The Shops at Clearfork sits on the former Edwards Ranch family cattle operation, now occupied by many historic landmarks. Cassco, the development arm of the Edwards family, has overseen the creation of some of Fort Worth's finest neighborhoods and commercial developments since 1956.
