3 Can’t-Miss San Francisco Design Events Happening this Month!


Rare Device moves to the up-and-coming Divisadero Corridor; a famed vintage store throws a glam party to celebrate an expansion; and a San Francisco furniture powerhouse puts its outdoor goods on sale just in time for summer—get ready for the top design events in the City by the Bay this month.

Rare Device has long been one of SF’s top spots for finding great gifts and cute home accents. This March, the shop packs and moves from it’s Market Street storefront to the newly-minted “Divisadero Corridor” (the stretch of the Divisadero between Haight and McAllister–word on the street is that Jeremy Tooker of Four Barrel Coffee is opeing a cafe this spring in the same ‘hood). Owner Giselle Gyalzen will host a grand opening party on Thursday, March 15 from 5-10 p.m. to kick things off. Swing by to score incredible home goods. Plus, Bånh Mî Love You Long Time, Pandan_La and Simply Mochi will all be there selling delicious snacks. Like the old location, the store will feature finds from Up in the Air Somewhere, Begin Again and Elizabeth Street Cosmetics, amoung others. 3 Fish Studios will provide the inaugural show in the new gallery. Rare Device, 600 Divsadero St.

Put the party’s not over yet. The following week, on Friday, March 23 join Will Lenker and James Spinello to celebrate the opening of Upper Stuff, a new showroom above their cleverly curated vintage-modern collective store called Stuff. They will christen the space, which will have 90 dealers offering an intriguing mix of furniture and accessories, with a Studio 54 party starting at 5 p.m. The new space will more than double the size of the store, bringing it to 17,000 square feet of shopping bliss. Upper Stuff, 150 Valencia St.

Need more? During the entire month of March, McGuire Furniture will have all of their outdoor collections on sale. Shoppers are invited to stop in their Design District showroom to peruse sales and enjoy a glass of lemonade. It’s the perfect way to transition into spring, don’t you think? McGuire Furniture, 2 Henry Adams St.
