Davis Street Mercantile, a new furniture store and design studio, opened Saturday. It is the work of husband-and-wife Joe Ramirez and Amy Thomasson Ramirez. She is an interior designer, and he is a real estate broker with a talent for refurbishing vintage furniture. They started designing furniture together about two years ago.

The Oak Cliff residents bought the two-story building at 443 W. Davis in October. They leased one of two upstairs studios to Nikki Cotten Photography, which also celebrated its grand opening Saturday.
