Design Datebook: July 3–4


What events not to miss this weekend, from sales to exhibitions to open houses.

Shop: SALE


Inherited Goods
Los Angeles’ Inheritance, formerly Zelen Home, is having a serious summer sale, offering 50 percent off selected items, from pillows to dishware to linens and entertaining accessories. Drop into the Beverly Boulevard store to check out the new look and score some big savings.

A Classic Opportunity
Kartell kicks of a major sale this weekend with 30 percent off some of their most popular furniture and lighting pieces.  The event is going down at five Kartell flagship stores around the country until July 15, including San Francisco and Los Angeles.



Summer Through the Ages
More than 100 vintage and contemporary prints that speak to the joy of long summer days are part of the “The Summer Show” at Scott Nichols Gallery in San Francisco, which opens Saturday.

Take it Outside

For a nostalgic summertime view with a slightly more sardonic twist, check out “In the Backyard” at San Francisco’s Arthaus. Chris Schiavo’s chromeogenic prints depict strange scenes from backyards in Brooklyn.


BBQ-Ready in St. Francis Wood
This Masten and Hurd–designed masterpiece from 1929 is tucked inside San Francisco’s St. Francis Wood and with its huge backyard complete with Spanish-tiled veranda, fountain and top-of-the-line grill, it’s a barbecuer’s paradise. The interiors aren’t too shabby either: 4 bedrooms and 5 baths over 9,000 square feet have been luxuriously refurbished while maintaining the Mediterranean charm of the original design. Open Sunday 1–4 p.m.
