As we transition into fall and watch the leaves drop from the trees, we’re also getting ready for the annual The San Francisco Fall Show. A West Coast staple since 1981, the show will run from October 3rd to the 6th at San Francisco’s Fort Mason Center, with the Opening Night Preview Gala (deemed the highlight of the San Francisco Social Season) on October 2nd. Renowned designers and art enthusiasts alike will be gathering under one roof to celebrate and relish in the historic beauty of antiques. The show itself also functions as a fundraiser for Enterprise for Youth, a nonprofit that provides under-sourced San Francisco youth with career preparation and internship opportunities.
The San Francisco Fall Show never fails to deliver, and with this year’s theme Wanderlust: Around the World with Art, Antiques, and Design, it’s sure to be another week of absolute wonder. As always, they’ve gathered the top antique dealers from around the world to offer fine and decorative arts from all styles and periods.
Getting you into the spirit right from the get-go, four interior designers will transform the Grand Entry Hall into vignettes inspired by The Show’s travel theme. This year’s featured designers include Alessandra Blanca, Veere Grenney, SagreraBrazil Design, and Hutton Wilkinson.
As with any antiques show, of course, the main highlight will be on the show floor. Over 50 world-class dealers will be bringing their collections of paintings, furniture, jewelry, ceramics, and anything in between. Throw authentication worries to the wind as you stroll through the galleries, as everything has been authenticated and appraised by the Antique Dealers Association of California.
