Leslie Pritchard is the owner of the hip Dallas-based vintage shop Again & Again. She is essentially a furniture artist, and leaves a distinct signature on her traditional pieces, giving them a modern, au courant feel. “I don’t want what someone else has chosen for me,” declares Pritchard. “I want to find something and put a personal spin on it, whether it’s my own or someone else’s.”

L: Most impressive piece:
LP: It started out as the ugliest sofa on the planet! We cut it down, turned it into a loveseat and re-padded it to give it a new presence. Then we upholstered it in lilac linen and added a down cushion. It was unrecognizable.
