If you’re into clean lines and modern furniture, you must go check out the new Blu Dot showroom in San Francisco. I went in for a press tour last week, and the space was airy, clean and very stylish! (Even these two very chic ladies, Erin and Caitlin, thought so.) If you’re not familiar with Blu Dot, the quality and design of their furniture are amazing, and the prices are actually “within reach”. They are still investment pieces, in my opinion, but at least they’re not out of the question. Like this ‘Real Good’ chair I want for my desk, and in the copper. The showroom is located in one of the hippest part of town, the Mission, on 560 Valencia – right across from some of my favorite restos Bar Tartine and Locanda.
The showroom is decorated with vintage finds from Minneapolis, where Blu Dot is based. I think it’s cool that they’re bringing a little bit of their hometown to SF. I always love the look of balancing really contemporary pieces with vintage ones! I’m thinking of borrowing this look in my bedroom. What do you think? Now, can someone point me to where I can find some nice vintage portraits?
Just me playing photographer. You gotta do what you gotta do when you’re a one woman show!
Blu Dot will be adding more pieces in the showroom for fall. I’d say even if you’re not doing furniture shopping right now, I would still make a stop in there to see the pieces in person. It really is incredible to feel and touch AND day dream someday that all of these pieces can be yours! :)
Thanks for letting me share the first look of Blu Dot SF with you! – xo Jeanne
