Lorn Dittfeld's Propeller in Hayes Valley - on Hayes between Laguna and Octavia - is jam-packed with a diverse mix of contemporary furniture, glassware, textiles, art and plenty more - almost all of it by new, upcoming designers. Lorn opened his shop after being fed up with the high-priced sameness of the Crate & Barrel aesthetic and wanted to share his own discoveries with a wider audience. Designers like San Franciscan Melanie Schnack, William Earle of Sacramento, Fold Bedding from El Cerrito and plenty more are all at Propeller's pleasant & comfortable showroom - stop by for a visit - I'll be doing just that this Friday.
