Joining the throngs of interior design and furniture shops just south of Houston, this affordable addition stocks glassware, pillows, and dishware from Sweden, Spain, South America, Japan, and beyond. Owner Nina Freudenberger set up shop in June 2009, aiming to sell high-quality décor at recession-friendly prices—almost every item in the store is under $300. She decorated the hall-like space in natural shades of gray, brown, and white, with modern zigzag tiling. Chic home accents line the wooden shelves, including votives, framed art, hourglasses, and china. In addition, Freudenberger runs her own design firm, also called Haus Interior, and sources items from the shop. Apart from the in-store merchandise, shoppers can purchase several different design consulting packages for ideas to make over their homes, with focuses on “Color Therapy” or “Finishing Touches.”
