Who We Are
House (the shop) was the result of a combination of passion, design, style and history. Opened almost 20 years ago under the name Armoires & More, selling only armoires then, we morphed into a complete furniture and furnishings store, offering everything for our customers to be able to enjoy chic easy living. Our inventory was continually updated with the best that Libby found on her buying expeditions — never with cookie-cutter catalog pieces. Thanks to our hand-picked inventory, a room outfitted by House did not look like every neighbor’s. From custom furniture to custom design, we offered a vast product selection that fit our clients’ style and budget.
Owner Libby Haynes has a gift for turning houses into homes through her fresh and classic style. Libby regularly shops antique shows and small shops throughout the U.S. to bring new and unique treasures to clients. She has developed relationships with manufacturers and artisan industries locally and around the globe. Libby’s work has been featured Better Homes and Gardens, and her design expertise tapped for home and business projects throughout Dallas. Libby began her design career with Harold’s and Ralph Lauren before moving to Anteks Home Furnishings, where she used her experience in fashion to influence her cutting edge home design creations. While there, Libby helped lead the western trend in home furnishings and was the buyer and merchandiser for the six company stores before the chain was sold in 2000. Libby then helped start Estancia Home Collection in the Dallas design center, which later moved to Lovers Lane. The showroom specialized in design for homes, restaurants and hotels.
In 2003, Libby purchased Armoires & More. Through years of conversations with customers and her work in design projects, she turned the store into a stellar find and re-branded it as House. Now on the next journey, she has taken that experience and is now focusing her eye to one-on-one client design.
