Finds at EQ3, Nido, and HD Buttercup

With my talented and fabulous designer pal Mari Ines Woodsome, I enjoyed a lovely visit to several perimeter posts near the SF Design Center: the new EQ3 showroom, Nido, and HD Buttercup (across from Caltrain).  Here are a few lovely finds — mostly lights.

Loved the dazzle of the tensioned wire mesh against the bulb’s glow — a perfect light for a more contemporary space, maybe juxtaposed against a rustic dining table, or above a simple upholstered bed. [HD Buttercup]

Love the texture of this metal, and the three different pendant shapes.  Any, or a combination, would work well over an island, or in an entryway. [HD Buttercup]

I am smitten with this desklamp — I think it may be the curve of its arm, the finish of its metal, its simple shape…  I don’t know, but would love to have it on my desk this very moment. [HD Buttercup]

Love these oblong mirrors with thick bases, that come in white and grey toned sides. [Nido]

Just stunning, beautiful pendants to make a striking focal point for a high vaulted entry. Especially drawn to the silver and rose gold. [Nido]

Plush underfoot, a tailored rug with neutral palette. [EQ3]

An Eames design, like the lollypop colors on this entryway hook rack. Would liven up a neutral palette. [EQ3]

Such a comfy chair, and love the marled fabric — very practical for covering up spills&stains over time. Clean chrome legs adds visual space to a room. [EQ3]

Like the marble base, simple curves of this lamp. [EQ3]

Nice entryway/mudroom storage series. Like the shallow 14″ bench, good for tight spaces. [EQ3]

Love this expandable wall organization system, that’s a series of simple white magnetic bases, and containers that magnetically adhere. Think incoming/outgoing mail, catalogs, some plants or flowers, pens. All set! [EQ3]
