    We always get these interesting glimpses on the periphery of clothing shots. I thought it would be interesting to see the homes /dwellings of SF members.

    Mine is a one story ranch style house, 1200 sq. ft
    Floors are walnut.

    The furniture in the living room shots:

    Leather chairs from Restoration Hardware in the style of Jean Michael Frank.

    Chesterfield style sofa in brown velvet, silver nailhead trim.

    Silk pillows from Silk Trading Co.

    Coffee table by Bernhardt, a kind of Asian /Rococo hybrid

    Panoramic photos taken from the turn of the century.
    (Found in the garbage!)

    Lamps by chairs are from Pottery Barn.

    Small table, Neo classical inspired by Baker

    Not in picture: red Eames LCW, and MVDR Barcelona chair

    Bedroom picture:
    Wooden bed
    Lamp on dresser, Restoration Hardware.
    Bachelor chest by Bernhardt
    Enlargements of postcards I got from Barcelona, Spain
    Linen curtains, I removed most of the closet doors.
    Closet: suits and the shoe rack.

    DP, great idea. Like all places, ours is eternally a work in progress and some things might have already changed. The dining room chairs are on their way out as they are just not comfortable enough for dinner parties when older folks come over.

    1. Entryway - Knotted chair, marble Saarinen table, vintage cadelabra, Bernt Mirror, Shade Shade.

    2, 3. Dining Room - Saarinen table, Bertoia chairs, S-chair, Low-pad chairs, Ruhs Panca, various art and knick-nacks.

    4. Bedroom - Felt chair, Uni lacquered cabinet, more knick-nacks

    5. Egg chairs, Cone table, Irkel bookshelf, more crap

    Continued... 1. Living room - Rive Droite chair, Ile sofa, some table that I don't know the name of from Cappellini, more junk. 2. Solarium (?) - Same two Low pad chairs and Ruhs Panca from Dining room. 3. Kitchen - Pretty self explanatory, but a poor picture. Any questions about any of the art, architecture, house or crap feel free to ask.

    Matt: Where are you located? Curious because of the city shot in one of the windows.

    dp: love the walnut floor

    matt: love the modern look and furnishings. Who made that kitchen? How large is the apt? Is it an older building?

    Thanks for the info Matt. We're looking into kitchens so I'll try and look them up. Great taste as always.

    Matt,

    Why do you have *three* Starck juicers when you only need one in order NOT to be able to prepare a proper glass of fresh juice? [​IMG]

    (I have one, too, and yet I always reach for my cheap plastic juicer when I'm in the kitchen....)

    [​IMG] It's something similar although not quite as Gothic.

    I thought it was the Alessi juicer.

    Alessi is the manufacturer; Philipe Starck is the designer. He is infamous for creating sculptural designs for Alessi that only sort-of function properly, such as the "Hot Bertaa" kettle (pictured below) and the "Juicy Salif" juicer under discussion.

    There used to be this Tintin store in San Francisco--I don't know if it's still there--that sold Alessi by Starck.

    I think it was called kariktar, on Sutter St.

    no exterior home shots? I am just as much interested in the external architecture as the interior. Plus I like to see the landscaping too.

    Karikter is still there. It is a great place to buy stocking stuffers. The Alessi store is next door, so Karikter does not sell hat much Alessi anymore. They also used to sell a lot of Kartell, but they opened their own store as well.

    Why do we have three? Wedding gifts that we needed to find something to do with. We hated the idea of registering, so we ended up with doubles and triples of some stuff.

    I love Tin Tin. Always have.

    I would put exterior shots up, but our building prohibits it. I also hate the front of our building, although I seem to be in the minority as we have tourists visiting to take pictures all too often. It is yet another fake Italian stucco house from the 20s. In SF, there are a ton. THere are even more of th awful Victorians.

    We live in a 1970s modern house and mainly collect furnishings from the 60s and 70s (with a bit of contemporary mixed in). Here are interior and exterior photos of our place (ignore the fact that it's for sale -- that's obviously not why I'm posting the link):

    These are the only photos immediately at hand. Please excuse the image quality. In the background is La Jolla Cove. This candid diptych is about two or three years old. I was "arranging" some flowers in the dining alcove.

    Behind and below is one of the living rooms. The wood furniture in that room and the dining alcove is from Maria Yee. Most of it has the Shinto style legs from Maria's Big Sur Collection. It is all mortise and tenon joined. There are no screws, brackets, clips, or nails. The woods are finished in shellac, varnish, or bee's wax.

    The leather items must be eight or ten years old now and are from Roche-Bobois.

    You might spot a few small Dale Chihuly pieces scattered about. We bought a few minor pieces in the early 1970s while he was still making the pieces with his own hands.

    The lovely champion Bedlington Terrier is a vintage 1991 named Phoebe.

    This is part of my clothes closet. The wall of ties (!), another shirt rack, and the overcoat/outer coat/dressing gown rack are not visible

    [​IMG]

    If I am able to find some photos from the apartment building in Minsk or the home in Cargese, I will post those later. I am not even close to having more than three decades of images scanned and the prints or negatives are certainly not organized. Sisyphus will get to the crest before all of our photos are ever organized. [​IMG]
