About Jan Showers
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 released her newest book, Glamorous Living, the third in her collection of design books on the subject. Glamorous Living, Glamorous Rooms and Glamorous Retreats were all published by Abrams. Glamorous Rooms is currently in its twelfth printing. This “glamorous” trifecta displays a cross section of the styles, decorative preferences, and life experiences that have made Jan and her firm one of the most prominent in the country. With the addition of Glamorous Living, Jan opens the curtain on her personal, family life while guiding the reader through a new collection of beautiful projects from across the U.S.
Over the course of her career—spanning three decades—she has received many of the profession’s highest honors. Jan served as the co-chair for the inaugural Kips Bay Decorator Show House in Dallas during fall 2020 and is honored to chair again in 2021. 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. In 2020 D Home has named her the Queen of Design.
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 only available at her showroom in the Dallas Design District. The Jan Showers Collection is a line of more than 150 pieces spanning cigarette tables and Murano glass chandeliers to commodes, dressing tables, settees, and bar carts.
Jan Showers & Associates announced a furniture line, the 1308 Collection, in the fall of 2018 which is available online at retail and in her showroom in Dallas Design District at 1308 Slocum Street.
For more than 25 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 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 2022 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.
