I started with the best shops for your home furniture and decoration in New York. This week, it’s all about San Francisco, and their home furniture and decor shops.
Gump’s has been in San Francisco for around 150 years – since 1861. Founded by brothers Solomon and Gustav Gump, it started out as a mirror and frame shop, and it has since evolved into a primary destination for luxury gifts, home decor, and artful objects. They’ve got Asian-inspired decor and Moroccan rugs on sale. They have furniture for every room, and they have dining and entertaining items in different designs. Their newest collection features plates with fall designs. Shop in store or shop online; it doesn’t matter, but if you live in SF or happen to be in the city, check out their store, and the events they hold regularly.

LIMN is a San Francisco and Sacramento based art and design company. All of their products strive to reflect their effort to combine art and design together. Their products range from worldwide inspired designs to regional artists. Products from Europe are their trademark though. Most of these products have never been available for purchase in the US, and some are being sold for the first time outside of Europe. Check out their showroom in SoMa, which also houses an art gallery right next to it.
