This was a perfect walk. Short, but packed with interesting things to see.
The Design District lives up to its name. Large warehouses line the streets filled with nifty furnishings, clothing and flooring.
The backs of the the buildings look like they've seen a lot of shipments.
Some buildings in the area are old...
...and some are new. Check out Roche Bobois if you are in the market for some incredibly extravagant furniture.
While most places appeared to be closed when I passed by on Saturday morning, Restoration Hardware was open to the public. I so want a new set of patio furniture now. Thanks a lot, Restoration.
True story: I attended a party inside the Galleria last year and lost my ID somewhere in the monstrous building. Two days later, someone called to say they found it. Yay for the honest folks of San Francisco!
This neighborhood is interesting. In some ways it feels very exclusive and closed to the general public...but then a button like this comes along.
