Leslie Pritchard is a home-furnishings wizard. There?s no other explanation for her ability to triumphantly turn has-been vintage furniture into 21st-century must-have decor.
The Dallas woman has been restoring buffets, hutches, desks and the like since 2005, but now she?s doing it on a grander scale at Again and Again, with two Design District warehouses full of redo-worthy inventory.
At the new Riverfront address, a showroom stuffed with mid-century tufted sofas and Greek end tables underscores Pritchard?s love of form. In fact, while customers may revel in the consignment wonderland at her other location around the corner, it is here where the fruits of Again and Again?s labor shine.
Whether it?s a pair of Ming cabinets by Widdicomb ($950), a raised-wood, mid-century credenza ($2,250) or a couple of tortoise Murano lamps with Lucite bases ($1,950), the selection here is eclectic and one of a kind.
Pritchard and her employees manage to reincarnate castaway pieces with inventive finishes and painterly touch-ups. It?s hardly a new mission for this businesswoman, who has never bought a piece of new furniture.
