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. Jan’s third book, Glamorous Living, will also be published by Abrams in Fall 2020.
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.
Jan’s to the trade furniture and lighting collection, the Jan Showers Collection, highlights her signature style. The Collection was created over 20 years ago and is available at showrooms throughout the U.S.
Jan Showers & Associates announced a furniture line, the 1308 Collection, in the fall of 2018 which is available only at her showroom in Dallas Design District at 1308 Slocum Street.
For more than 20 years Showers has been a pioneer of French antiques for the Dallas community and designers. 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 was introduced in 2019. Being released in spring 2021 will be her second line of fabrics with Kravet. 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.
