The name Jux-Ta-Posh comes from the word “juxtapose” which means to place two contrasting items together. And when you add something “posh” with your salvaged and reclaimed goods, you arrive at the name, Jux-Ta-Posh.
It’s the rare blend of details – charisma, charm, and rugged edges – that make the Lubbock community exclusively one-of-a-kind, irreplaceable, and uniquely us. Jux-Ta-Posh fits snuggly into that ethos and is an experience curated by owner and longtime Lubbockite Kim Sparks, especially for the Lubbock, Texas, community.
Located on Buddy Holly Avenue in the heart of Lubbock’s Depot Entertainment District, this “Etsy meets West Texas vibe” provides a “collection of reimagined, recycled, and repurposed home decor treasures.”
From dinner plates and bedding to both industrial and eclectic furniture, the majority of items found in the treasure chest that is Jux-Ta-Posh have all been handcrafted or sourced from “mansions, victorian houses” and historical buildings across the country.
However, even with the dazzle of historic treasures found and embraced by every corner of Jux-Ta-Posh’s storefront, this business isn’t just an address on a bustling street in a West Texas city.
After purchasing, renovating, and leasing out Lubbock’s KDAV radio building, Kim along with her husband, Michael, set their sites on Lubbock’s historic Kress building, which now occupies tenants integral to the Lubbock community such as Burklee Hill Vineyards’ bistro and wine-tasting room.
With an eye for design and revitalization at the core of Kim’s nature, the Sparks duo have dedicated themselves to investing into Lubbock’s downtown infrastructure, community, and culture.
