About Golden Bow Designs

Thank you for checking out our online shop!  Golden Bow Designs is both a physical and online shop.  Our physical shop is located in Fischer, Texas, in the beautiful Texas Hill Country and just a stones throw from Wimberley, San Marcos, Blanco, and Canyon Lake.  We are right in the most haunted region of Texas along the "Devil's Backbone".  It is a very scenic drive to reach our shop which is located in a Victorian style home, built in Austin, Texas, in 1906, and then relocated to Fischer in 2017.  The home has lots of character and we love it as a shop location as it perfectly fits with our aesthetic.

Golden Bow Designs & Antiques is the joint creation of Louise & Matte Black, partners in business and in life.  With 20 years of experience in the design world, we are curating an eclectic shop of antiques and curiosities with a heavy focus on art and home decor.  We source everything from antique furniture and hardware to interesting textiles, taxidermy, and home design elements from all over the world.  Along with antique and vintage items we also carefully curate new design elements, scarves, handbags, jewelry and other fashion accessories.  We are the perfect location to find unique gifts or home and garden design elements.

Louise Black has been designing since the late '90s and had already been building a large following before gaining additional exposure on the fashion show "Project Runway".  Louise has been on Etsy almost since the first days and has over 1000 5-Star reviews. Her collection is primarily moving to this site now to keep everything in one easily accessible location and to get away from Etsy fees, which will help keep prices down.  You can still find her textiles and other destash odds-n-ends on her Etsy Destash Shop, louisedetash.

While Matte Black doesn't have the same pedigree, he is an artist at heart and has always had an interest in history, craftsmanship, and elegant design.  Some of his graphic and digital art can be found  on his rarely updated site, matteblack.art.

The ultimate aim of our shop is to live artistically, immersed in the ongoing quest to find items that will bring art and beauty into our customer's lives.
