Knox-Henderson home store shutters following founder's exit
Dallas’ Knox-Henderson area is down one home design store. Following the announcement that interior designer John Erdos is resigning from his namesake company, Erdos at Home, the company announced that it was closing 12 stores around the country — including its Dallas location.
The store opened in early 2016 to much fanfare, offering a unique, highly edited product selection (hence the tagline “a dose of the unexpected”) that set it apart from its more mass-market counterparts. And while Erdos at Home offered a wide range of quality, luxurious design, it boasted an affordable price point similar to that of neighboring stores like Pottery Barn and Crate & Barrel — from $25 tabletop accessories to $4,595 tufted leather couches.
“It’s been a great ride, and I’m very proud of the company we created,” Erdos says in a release. “I’m currently working on some new things and fielding some fun opportunities, so it’s hard to say exactly what’s next for me. But, I can tell you; it’s going to be exciting. I’m not going anywhere, anytime soon.”
Following a 24-year stint in Singapore while working for J. Crew, Erdos moved to Dallas to head up Erdos at Home. He actually established his namesake design business in Singapore, and what started as a hobby turned into an international business that includes celebrity fans like Giorgio Armani, Julia Roberts, Helen Hunt, Susan Sarandon, and others.
While there’s no word yet on exactly when the store will close, we’d suggest stopping by sooner rather than later. Other cities feeling the loss include St. Louis; Oklahoma City; Fayetteville, Arkansas; Birmingham, Alabama; Kansas City, Missouri; Little Rock, Arkansas; Memphis, Tennessee; Richmond Heights, Missouri; Ridgeland, Mississippi; Rogers, Arkansas; and Tulsa, Oklahoma.
