MILESTONES & ANNIVERSARIES 2017 marked several important milestones within the district, with a number of businesses celebrating significant anniversaries. Most notable is the 60th anniversary of the Dallas Market Center. Founded in 1957, the center has a long history of success not only within the Dallas community, but in the global wholesale trade industry as well. With the addition of new technology to make the marketplace faster, more efficient, and interactive, and the redevelopment of The Plaza into the Interior Home + Design Center, Dallas Market Center is dedicated to innovation and providing top of the line resources to interior designers, retailers and manufacturers. Founded in 1947 by Robert M. Brittingham in a modest Quonset hut, Daltile celebrates their 70th anniversary this year, and Dal-Tile’s Design District Design Studio celebrates 5 years, having grown from a Dallas-based manufacturing facility into a nationwide industry leader. Renowned for their customer service, Daltile is also a green company, committed to creating beautiful designs that reduce environmental impact. Boasting the most diverse in-house production capabilities of any iron workshop in the world, Murray’s Ironworks has been creating one-of-a-kind pieces of lighting, furniture, and architecture for 50 years. Spanning the residential, hospitality and architectural industries, the business creates everything from lighting and outdoor furniture to lareg scale elements such as grand staircases and iron gates. Celebrating 30 year anniversaries in 2017 are Mark Moussa’s Arteriors, a global leader in sophisticated artisan lighting, furniture, wall décor, and decorative accessories, and Nancy Epstein’s Artistic Tile, an authority in the manufacture, import, and distribution of luxury tile and stone. At the 20-year mark are Exquisite Surfaces, founded by Paula Nataf and her sons Franck and Alexis, and the environmentally conscious Global Views. The Dallas location of luxury home goods purveyor, Ebanista, celebrates 10 years in the district.
