This exquisite showroom is filled with European antiques, bronze cowboy sculptures, budgetfriendly gift items, and a trove of museum-worthy Persian carpets hand-knotted in owner Kazem Khonsari’s native Iran (a particularly memorable black and white one depicting Ronald Reagan is framed on a wall).

Kazem Khonsari’s Lost Pines Art Bazaar ( offers a surprising and thoughtfully curated mix of Persian culture with a Texas twist, including richly hued handwoven rugs, fine antiques, metal and wood art pieces, and western bronze sculptures. You’ll also find fair trade and handmade home décor items, such as Rifle Paper Company recipe boxes and Ten Thousand Villages serving sets.
