GRANGE Holiday Sale!

::SPOT LIGHT::

GRANGE Furniture, Inc
SFDC Showplace #160

Get your wish list out… Grange is having a Holiday Sale! 10% off custom orders and 25% off all in-stock orders. Visit Grange in the SFDC Showplace #160 or call them at 415.863.6406 for details.

Grange, a company more than a century old, perpetuates the French cabinet-making tradition as a creator, maker and distributor of furniture, promoting centuries-old know-how and rare qualities of finishes. A large part of its production still continues in France.

However, the brand has never ceased to re-appropriate styles in order to reinterpret them. In parallel with traditional-style furniture, Grange designs furniture that blends classical lines with modernity. The brand also proposes collections that are ever more full of stories, evoking travel, forgotten trades and the pleasant lifestyles of France’s regions.

The SFDC is proud to announce an art show by Outliers, eleven emerging artists based in San Francisco.

The Art Show will present a diverse selection of styles and subject matter: from photorealistic still lifes to contemporary portraiture; from abstracted figures to conceptual art objects and contemporary abstracts.

The Outliers was formed in the Fall of 2011, during the group’s final phase of their formal education. As recent graduates—mentored by Kevin Moore, represented by Hespe Gallery — the art show marks the beginning for each artist’s career in the art world and therefore a great opportunity to purchase exceptional work by tomorrow’s young stars of the art world.  Individual artist catalogs will be on sale at the opening.

“Scot Meacham Wood is Designing for the Holidays” by Claudia Juestel

::SPOT LIGHT::

Home owners start thinking about sprucing up their homes in the months before the holidays, and often whole design projects get started this time of the year.  However, Fall at the San Francisco Design Center has generally been business as usual.  But this year has been different.  Back in early September the city’s trade center for fine furnishings held a new series of events as called “Fall Into Fabrics”, which included an afternoon with Barbara Barry, a presentation by Laurel Sprigg about the ins and outs of window treatments, and the introduction of leather master artisan Beatrice Amblard’s collaboration with the Queen of Alpaca Sandra Jordan, combining leather and fabrics in handbags and home accessories.

Most recently, in perfect time for holiday preparations, Kravet hosted an event sponsored by the San Francisco Design Center and California Home + Design magazine.  Fellow interior designer  Scot Meacham Wood, also known for his splendid blog “The Adventures of Tartan Scot”, took the audience through the entire process of preparing for a holiday party. Read more on Adeeni Design Blog…. 

About Claudia: Principal of Adeeni Design Group she has had the pleasure of living out her passions, which range from architecture, design and art, fashion and travel to cooking and entertaining.  As the architecture and design editor for SFLuxe and Reside she covers what is happening in the Bay Area and interview icons of design and arbiters of style for her series “Tea With Claudia”.
