ACDC Aesthetic Content Makes Dallas News!

02NHG_22Candles1

We are so excited to announce that our line, ACDC made it in the Dallas Morning News!  The new line to our showroom has added depth to our assortment, not to mention friends in the business! Next time you are in the Market Center, don’t forget to stop by and check out all the new products from ACDC.  We can’t wait to see what they have in store for 2015!

“This happened a bit organically from both David’s and my passions. He loves candles and lighting and I love home accessories and textiles. As we started Aesthetic Content, we wanted to create a home decor brand that had a design and sensory appeal,” says Farrell.

Fragrances for the candles are custom-selected by the pair, who make a point not to imitate scents found at other manufacturers.

“We started researching how candles were made from the base ingredients up, starting with best waxes and wicks for a clean burn and working closely with perfume houses,” says Farrell.

The housewares category includes ceramic and cork bowls and serving pieces. “We strive to be eco-friendly and use sustainable products. Cork is a renewable product. It’s a great, resilient material,” Farrell says.

Lamps offered by Aesthetic Content are designed by the pair and outside artists and are constructed of handmade art glass, aluminum and crystal. Fabric shades are lined in silver.

For 2015, the partners plan to add pillows and throws to the product assortment they offer to stores. “We’re working on textiles. It’s a fun way to bring color and life into a room,” Hairgrove says.
