Meredith O’Donnell Fine Furniture has been in business since 1995 in the River Oaks area of Houston. The store’s owners, Gene and Meredith O’Donnell noticed a void in upper-end furnishing as the three leading high-end stores in the Decorative Center retired and closed. The duo’s idea of a bespoke furniture showroom came to fruition rather quickly and their journey as one of Houston’s leaders in fine furniture began. More recently, the showroom has taken its next step and moved into a bigger, brighter space in the Houston Design Center, the premium home design destination in the region.
Meredith O’Donnell’s showroom is open to retail and trade, attracting traditional American factories such as Baker, Karges, Kindel, and Councill. Combining fine furniture from the very best Italian, French, and English workshops are what makes this showroom genuinely unique. The furniture store offers pieces that can be purchased and delivered immediately, but also offers clients the options of working with their design team to create a custom order. “Our experienced staff, designers with various backgrounds, all have a deep love of furniture, its history, it is like working with art for all of us,” says owner Meredith O’Donnell.
The showroom’s new space in The Houston Design Center is larger than their previous location and has many windows that offer an abundance of natural light. The space showcases a wide variety of furniture styles making it easy to find something for every home and design preference.
Although their latest outpost marks a new chapter for the furniture store, the journey doesn’t end here for Meredith O’Donnell. 2021 will bring more exclusive fine lines and more stock for those who don’t have time to wait for their furniture to be made and delivered. The goal of Gene and Meredith O’Donnell is to fill Houston homes with quality furniture for decades to come. meredithodonnell.com
