Look Into the Light
As part of our mad American inspirational tour our first port of call was San Francisco. A design mecca for the Mid Century fan this city never fails to deliver.
Our buying team did a huge swoop of classic Cali 50’s lighting as well as finding a few European beauties to add to the vintage lighting category.
Enjoy the lights and here are our best bits from the City:
Great spacious rooms
3 dining experiences at the G Hotel: Three 9 Eight brasserie , Kylde Cafe & Wine Bar, Benjamin Cooper
De Young Museum & Japanese Tea Garden.
