I believe in telling a story with every room I design
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 28, 2012
San Francisco based globetrotting interior designer Jonathan Rachman of Jonathan Rachman Design announces the launch of his new online shop on Second Shout Out's vintage only lifestyle shopping website. The Jonathan Rachman Design online shop highlights his love of collecting and re-purposing unique and patinaed curios from around the world. Antique silhouettes, vintage laboratory chemistry jars and brushed metal airplane wings are just a few of the items that create a fascinating blend through which one can peruse.
Jonathan Rachman burst onto the San Francisco Bay Area interior design scene with his Collector’s Library at the 2012 San Francisco Decorator Showcase winning him much press attention and praise. Featuring an elegant European sensibility meets a touch of industrial design that was classic but current, timeless but also contemporary, his distinctive choice of objects evoked curiosity and conversation. Jonathan believes in preserving artifacts and found objects from the past for the enjoyment of the future generation. His design style is a harmonious collection of artifacts from Asia, Europe and America, be it antique, vintage or industrial. As Jonathan says, “I believe in telling a story with every room I design.”
A few examples of pieces in his shop include:
- A World War II American A-26B “Invader” bomber wing tip: Removing the paint exposed the original aluminum patina.
- Bowling Ball: A marbled 1950’s bowling ball.
- Pendant Lights: Re-purposed chicken feeders take on a new life as lighting fixtures.
Jonathan and his work have recently been featured in the highly regarded interior design blog The Style Saloniste by Diane Dorrans Saeks and in the San Francisco Chronicle’s Stylemaker Spotlight.
