Are you interested in coming down to Texas to shop with Standish? Are you also looking for fun things to do during your trip here? Well, this blog is just for you! Our partner showroom is located in Giddings TX, which is about an hour East of Austin. If you are flying down to come see us then you are more than likely going to be arriving at the Austin Bergstrom International Airport. Austin is a funky town that is filled with hidden treasures that make the phrase “Keep Austin Weird” so true!



The first thing that we would recommend for you to do while you are visiting Austin is to learn some Texas history! What better place to do that than by visiting the State Capitol Building? They offer free guided tours for anyone who is interested and they are open every day of the week, but closed on all major holidays. The capitol building is located 1100 Congress Ave, Austin TX 78703.


Are you the artsy type? Then Hope Outdoor Gallery is the perfect place for you! This community paint park is located at 11th & Baylor St. in downtown Austin. What is so unique about Hope Outdoor Gallery is the fact that it’s the only paint park of it’s kind in the United States. It was developed to provide muralists, street artists, art education classes to display their work of art! Hope Outdoor Gallery is actually listed as one of the Top 10  Artistic destinations in Texas. They host several events throughout the year that we highly recommend attending if you are visiting during that time!



Want to be amazed by the beauty of Texas wildflowers? Then the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center located at The University of Texas is going to wow you! Their mission is to inspire the conservation of native plants through their gardens, research, education, consulting and outreach programs. In doing this the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center improves the quality of water, provides habitat for wildlife and also enhances human health and happiness! So stop by and smell the roses!



After having a long busy day why not kick back, relax and watch a movie with a Shiner in hand at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema? The Alamo Drafthouse is the perfect place to unwind after a day of sightseeing and Salon Furniture shopping! Pick your favorite movie to watch, and enjoy their fully stocked bar and wonderful food to complement the movie! You can’t go wrong stopping by here for a little R&R time.



If stopping by Alamo Drafthouse Cinema doesn’t get you fully relaxed then you can’t go wrong by treating yourself to a nice pamper me day at the Wild Orchid Salon + Spa located at A, 3600 N Capital of Texas Hwy #100, Austin, TX 78746! Fun fact, Wild Orchid is a client of ours so when you stop by tell everyone there we said hello! They offer all services from a blowout to a full spa treatment!
