About Golden Bow Designs
Thank you for checking out our website! Golden Bow Designs is both a physical and online shop. Our physical shop started in Fischer, Texas, in the beautiful blue Victorian in June 2019. We have closed this location and relocated to New Braunfels. We will continue to have a physical presence at events as well as booth space at Max's Haus and Uncommon Objects.
As of 2022, we now provide Estate Sale & Liquidation Services. More info here.
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 Instagram page, @matte_black_
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.
