Jan Barboglio opens Dallas warehouse to public for different kind of fire sale
You may know Jan Barboglio’s handcrafted home furnishings from Neiman Marcus and other fine specialty stores. From elegant tableware to exquisite furniture, the Jan Barboglio Collection showcases superior craftsmanship and reflects the inspiration of old Mexico. Barboglio is known among her collectors for turning everyday living into something magical.
For the first time ever, and for one weekend only, Jan Barboglio will open its warehouse doors to the public for an unprecedented sale, with items discounted by up to 80 percent. This rare opportunity has been created to commemorate a fire that took place last summer in one of Barboglio’s work spaces in Mexico.
Although the fire had a profound impact on Barboglio and her team, she has chosen to focus on the positives from this chapter in her history, namely that there was no loss of life.
“The fire was initially devastating, overwhelming the company with feelings of sadness and loss,” she says. “However, as the sun started to shine through the smoke, I began to appreciate the beauty behind the fire and saw an opportunity for us to focus on the future.”
The fire also left behind an extraordinarily rare patina on some items that can only be found in Mother Nature.
These truly one-of-a-kind gems hold a unique seal of “la belleza del fuego,” or the beauty of the fire. Unharmed in their function and handpicked by Barboglio, these pieces carry the reminder that with adversity there is also beauty and strength.
It is in honor of this limited collection that the Jan Barboglio warehouse in the Dallas Design District will open to the public June 11-13, from 9 am to 3 pm each day. Pieces available for the sale include decadent tableware, lighting accessories, mirrors, tables, chairs and many more furniture pieces, along with 20 years of products that have never been seen before.
The collection is entirely handmade, with forged iron, blown glass, wax castings, engravings and etchings. Everything is uniquely crafted by individual artists.
To commemorate the fire’s anniversary, more than 1,000 pieces will be discounted with savings of up to 80 percent. You don’t want to miss this one-time-only event.
