The Knox-Henderson area of Dallas has seen a lot of activity lately, as new restaurants and retailers have taken up residence. But one is on its way out: Timothy Oulton.

According to a spokesperson, the British-born store will close in early March "to focus on other locations in the U.S. market."

It opened in late summer 2012, at a prime location at the intersection of Central Expressway, in the old Potter Metal Art Studio. It was filled with pieces in Oulton's signature look: "men's club meets campaign furniture, all with quirky British humor," wrote Connie Dufner, in an article about the best furniture stores in Dallas. There was lots of leather, beefy trunks and upholstered pieces with British flags.

Dallas was the first U.S. standalone shop for the brand. Timothy Oulton has other locations in Orange County, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
