One of our existing clients purchased an award winning residence designed by Zack/De Vito Architecture in the Noe Valley district of San Francisco. As we had worked on his previous residence, we knew his taste, style and overall requirements. The brief was simple: create cutting edge décor (with a bit of whimsy) that could stand up to the architecture while incorporating a few pieces from his present house.
We started in the living room with an orange-to-gray silk carpet and a pair of Christian Liagre Latin Chairs. Added to the mix was a pair of original Papa Bear chairs and ottomans by Hans Wagner, a Knoll sofa and an over-sized industrial mold on the wall. The dining room, adjacent to the living area, was the perfect place for “Dancing Partners” by Robert Longo… purchased several years ago by the client at auction. We furnished the space with a live edge dining table and a set of natural leather saddle Cab armchairs. A pair of “85 lamps” chandeliers by Droog and a colorful Missoni carpet complete the space. Outside the dining room, an outdoor living room was created with a large teak sofa, armchairs and a pair of Chinese “scholar stones” used as coffee table. For a strong visual element, we added a metal sculpture by Agelio Battle, a perfect match for the steel components already in the garden created by the architect. The master suite on the sixth floor is reached by a dramatic steel and acrylic staircase. Walls were covered with Phillip Jeffrey’s Seagrass, giving warmth to the space. All the furniture was designed by us and manufactured by Fabian Fine Furniture.
