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.
