Grand Opening: OBSOLETE, San Francisco

Last night I attended the grand opening of Obsolete's new showroom in San Francisco's Design District. I'm thrilled that they opened a second location in Northern California.


Obsolete has the most eclectic and unique objects d' art...


Luckily I took these photos early on, as it became jam-packed with people...


The grounds surrounding the showroom are beautiful....


Quotes from the likes of Eames and Chanel painted on the walls...love it...





My friend Karen enjoying the opening...



What a great quote from Aretha...



Always the most eclectic objects at Obsolete...



This vintage wing back chair in the corner is upholstered with vintage Army tenting. What a unique idea...


an old cabinet filled with my favorite, Santa Maria Novella potpourri...




If you're in the San Francisco area, be sure and visit Obsolete. You'll be in for a treat!

What an amazing showroom - and the gardens around are beautiful! Did your friend Karen used to work at Schwab? I worked there years ago and she looks so familiar! (I know that's so random, but I had to ask).

Oh how I wish I could visit Obsolete! With all those body forms, hands, etc. it looks like my house! (I think I may have OVER-collected here...). :)

I have wanted to experience Santa Maria Nouvella scents for years...someday!

I love all the wall quotes, too, especially the very last one. And regarding the last quote, if you happen to love your work, then you're set! I know I am! :)

Great post!!

Thank you so much for this amazing post. What a fascinating place! I am doing an art installation for a client who is a Chanel rep and one of the quotes you posted of Coco will be perfect for part of this. I love your blog. It's so engaging.
