Minding Your Manor

With a name like Society, one might assume shop owners Pamela Jackson and Jeremi Headrick are sticklers for decorum. But while their pocket-sized outpost in Bishop Arts exudes refinement, the overall vibe is decidedly unpretentious. Their motto, Simple Elegance for Gracious Living, is reflected in a beguiling assortment that ranges from mid-century ceramic compotes and Tatine candles to glass salt cellars and a vintage marble bust of a turban-topped nobleman. The duo’s names may ring a bell to those familiar with their design and decor work under the moniker Jackson Vaughn; their skills certainly came in handy when transforming this vacant-since-1941 space nestled next to Eno’s. The planked walls (dotted with black-and-white photos of family members) and concrete floor complement their ever-changing amalgam of vintage/new/quirky gifts and collectibles, all peacefully coexisting despite the fact that, often times, their only commonality is that Jackson and Headrick couldn’t imagine life without them. 403 North Bishop Ave., 214.942.4600; jacksonvaughn.com.
