About Jan Showers
Dallas based designer Jan Showers believes, “Design should relate to the way we live—it also should be beautiful, glamorous, comfortable and luxurious, even when very casual.” Showers style has been described by one of her clients as, “The interiors of Jan Showers & Associates are chic and timeless. They exude glamour and grace with an approachable and at ease feeling, much like Jan herself.”
It’s fitting then that Jan has written two books on the subject: Glamorous Rooms and her follow-up, Glamorous Retreats, both published by Abrams. Glamorous Rooms is now in its twelfth printing. Together, her books display a cross section of the styles and decorative preferences that have made Jan and her firm one of the most prominent in the country.
Over the course of her career—spanning three decades—she has received many of the profession’s highest honors. Her magazine credits alone place her in the highest echelon of designers. They include Architectural Digest, Elle Décor, Veranda, House Beautiful, InStyle, Traditional Home, British Home and Garden, Harper’s Bazaar, and Luxe.
Architectural Digest has named Jan Showers & Associates to the AD100, its preeminent directory to the international world of design for the past five years.
Jan’s to the trade furniture and lighting collection, the Jan Showers Collection, highlights her signature style. The Collection was created 20 years ago and is available at showrooms throughout the U.S.
This fall, Jan Showers & Associates is announcing a new furniture line, the 1308 Collection, which will be available only at her showroom in Dallas Design District at 1308 Slocum Street.
Showers has been selling antique and vintage pieces in her Dallas showroom for over 20 years. She travels internationally in search of antiques she imports both for her Dallas showroom and for the specific needs of her design clients.
Collaboration is very important to Jan and her team. She has created a complete lifestyle collection for Kravet Couture, a line that includes fabrics, wall coverings, rugs, furniture, and lighting. Showers second Kravet furniture collection will be introduced at the High Point Market April 2019. Her other partnerships include a hand-knotted rug series for Moattar, Inc., a lighting series with L.A. based designer Joe Cariati and a cowhide rug collection for Kyle Bunting.
