dallas design scene

Can anyone offer feedback on the design scene in Dallas, TX?

Specifically are there any product designers, one off furniture designers etc?

What are some of the best design companies right now?

Comments please.

apperently nothing is going on in dallas.
i was under the impression this is transforming into a vibrant trendy cosmopolitan city.

please, i do not want to lose hope for this cool place.

I live in Mesquite, not to far from Richardson. 30 minutes or so. But I have no idea if there is any design scene in Dallas. I was hoping there would be some big names down here. So I could Co-Op in Dallas, but i haven’t really looked into it yet. Seems like its not a major design spot.
