Jean-Louis Deniot’s keen architectural eye and timeless spirit inform his debut collection for Baker Furniture. Inspired by 20th-Century vintage furnishings, and with a nod to the grand presence of aristocratic décor, Deniot curates with his signature elegant balance and flirtatious wit. At once serene and sexy, casual yet refined, these pieces warm with antique golds, soften with muted grays, and awake in touches of ivory and white. The collection is eminently versatile, beautifully layered and so very livable.
“Baker and I are an absolute perfect match. I could not dream of a better collaboration.”

Sandra Jordan Prima Alpaca is pleased to launch a new collection concept called Casa de Campo, which means “Country House” in Spanish. Capturing the romance of the Peruvian highlands and elegance of rural living, Casa de Campo offers designers unparalleled options for new textures, nuances and hues in sumptuous Prima Alpaca. With their quiet sophistication and contemporary design sensibility, the fabrics can be dressed up or down and fit easily into today’s informal yet luxurious lifestyles. This expansive collection includes six intriguing textures that range from soft, deep-piled weaves to tailored looks. The line also features five light-as-air patterned sheers, a beautiful jacquard throw in French Vanilla Prima Alpaca and silk as well as an extension of plush Prima Alpaca Suri in coordinating colorways.
For inspiration for her new collection, designer and company founder Sandra Jordan turned to fond memories of her childhood in Peru. “In the summer, friends often visited a ‘Casa de Campo,’” Sandra says. “It brings to mind getting together in a relaxed environment with laughter, long walks in the country and lazy lunches with family.” Translating this low-key elegance into her new designs, Sandra devised a natural palette of six new color ways that includes hues from the “caminos”—or “roads”— of the Andes: pale grey, reddish browns and warm earth tones. The simple yet stunning textiles, which employ a number of intriguing blends including Peruvian pima cotton, considered the world’s finest, and Merino wool, reflect the delight-filled atmosphere of time spent with friends and family. Casa de Campo expands Sandra Jordan Prima Alpaca already wide palette of designer offerings. “The creation of fine alpaca textiles in Peru was becoming a lost art,” Sandra says. “With the debut of Casa de Campo, we are paying homage to this fine tradition while at the same time addressing the needs of today’s luxury interiors.”

Drawing upon the inspiration and success of Ronald McDonald House in Long Island where the design community rallied to refresh the 28 year-old facility, the San Francisco Design Center is proud to embark on a major philanthropic initiative in 2015. The SFDC has partnered with Ronald McDonald House at Stanford to provide major interior design services for their new expansion.
Under the design leadership of co-chairs Elizabeth Martin of Martin Group, and Geoffrey De Sousa of Geoffrey De Sousa Design and co-principal of De Sousa Hughes, they are galvanizing 50 interior design firms to provide pro bono interior design services for the 52,000-square-foot expansion of the House. On Friday, June 19th, participating designers working on the first and second floors toured the expansion at Ronald McDonald House Stanford. The designers for those floors were able to measure their assigned rooms, study the floor plans and get a feel for the layout.
When the expansion is complete in December of 2015, it will be the largest Ronald McDonald House in the world, providing invaluable shelter, support and community to the families of critically ill children being treated at the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital on the Stanford campus. The children, who come from all over California, the United States, and around the world, arrive at Ronald McDonald House at Stanford with serious medical conditions. Many are treated for cancer; some are waiting for organ transplants. With their families, these young patients can stay for weeks – even months – at the House.
