Shop: SALE




Summer Sale at DWR
The sale going on this weekend at Design Within Reach anticipates your summer activities, whether they are lounging in the backyard or sprucing up your digs. They are offering 25 percent off popular outdoor styles including Brown Jordan chaises, Sunbrella throw pillows, Loll Adirondack chairs and tables and even the new Serralunga-designed Chester Collection.

Local By Design
Chronicle Books and Zinc Details are partnering to showcase local artists and their works in a two-month exhibition and sale entitled “Local By Design.” Works from Bay Area author/artists will be on display and for sale at the Fillmore location of Zinc Details through June 30.




“Light Shadows” at Ace Gallery
An exhibition of new paintings and textile sculptures by Achim Freyer, the artistic director for L.A. Opera’s new production of Richard Wagner’s “Der Ring des Nibelungen,” opens at the Ace Gallery this Saturday. The pieces were inspired by his work on the opera, as was a performance he created for this weekend’s opening that combines theater, painting and masked costumes.

Documentary Photography Group Show at RayKo
Opening on Friday at Rayko Gallery in San Francisco, “The Archives” is the work of 18 photographers from the Academy of Art University and the Bay Area Documentary Association; images that capture a collection of life’s fleeting moments that are often dismissed.


Location and Looks in the Mission
This new-construction, top-floor condo has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and outdoor space. The property avoids the cookie-cutter condo look with marble tiles in the bath, a steel-encased fireplace and creative light fixtures, while the location in the heart of the Mission District means never being short on dinner options. Open Sunday, 2–4 p.m.
