Antonio Martins at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase

Posted on Tue, 10 May 2016 by midcenturyjo

I love a show house. They are a dream, a fantasy, a platform for interior designers and decorators to weave their magic. All in the name of beauty. All in the name of style. All in the name of pushing the boundaries. This artful living room at the by is inspired by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s expansion. The designer has created a space that celebrates the city’s vibrant creative energy and emphasizes the intersection of art and design. With its white lacquered walls, hot rolled steel floors, curated collection of vintage and cutting edge furniture as well as striking art it’s like a beautiful Salon, a meeting place for aesthetes, intellectuals and artists or, in our case, like-minded design lovers. Perhaps if you are in San Francisco you can visit this room and tell me how stunning it is in person. The is open now through to May 30.

Decorator showcase rooms always seem like spaces nobody would ever actually live in. It's like the old days when homes of the bourgeoisie had a fancy parlor nobody was allowed to actually use.

Peggy says:

Wow. Gorgeous. I love those sofas!!!

Definitely for looki', not so much for livin' — but fun and inspiring. The hot rolled steel floor is fantastic.

Jeffrey says:

Gorgeous exercise in restraint and proportion. It is a wonderful example of how this space would be used…for entertaining: perched for cocktails enjoying the view and the company, before heading to dinner or the theater. The artwork and the design is world-class.

Steve says:

A steel floor would be all kinds of fun with magnets. I want one.

That made me laugh out loud! And now I want one, too..
