Niven Morgan expands to Cebolla

Stairway to heaven

We’re still out of breath from shadowing Dallas’ multitasking lotion, potion and candle guru Niven Morgan for an April FD Luxe profile. Since then, the Louisiana-born charmer has added yet another venture to his creature-comfort empire: NIVEN MORGAN AT CEBOLLA. The bijoux retail space sits atop the stairs at the Lovers Lane outpost of Cebolla Fine Flowers (4415 Lovers Lane, Dallas, 214-369-7673, cebollafineflowers.com). Morgan’s focus here is “bath and body, stuff for the home, stuff for the pool house … basically, anything to do with water.” Staples include his sexy trademark candles and body lotions, plus bath accoutrements — tissue boxes, waste baskets, soap dispensers — in materials such as woven leather and faux snake. (For the record: A candle box clad in real python is an $800 special order.) Woven baskets are perfect for fluffy towels, and the flame-free outdoor L.E.D. candles are a surprise hit. But our favorite play station is the DIY bath-salt bar where, for about $8 a scoop, pretty glass vessels are ready to be filled with salts in three classic Morgan scents: Gold, Lavender-Mint and Jean Baptiste. Coming soon? Morgan has sourced oversize pillows from Africa that he’s stuffing to become lounge-worthy bean bags. “Lordy, it’s a lot to juggle.”
