The "Metropolitan Home - Modern by Design" Show House opened last Wednesday evening with a lavish party and one of the largest crowds that I've seen in SF in ages. Seriously, there was a line around the block to get in. And though it was tough to see the house through the masses of people, one of my clear favourites was the 'great room and loft' designed by the ever-marvelous and multi-talented Jay Jeffers.
The custom designed hide rug (yep, that's cowhide - laser cut and custom dyed) was clearly one of the big stars of the night, and the clever mixture of organic shapes (I'm loving those fantastic lamps!) and textiles contrasted with more streamlined elements strikes the perfect chord - brilliant.

And here is the small jewel-box powder room - resplendent in cork tile (really, made from wine corks!), beautiful lighting, and staring the custom bronze vanity.
If you are in the San Francisco area, I highly recommend stopping by the house for a view of this and the other amazing spaces. Here's all the information for location and hours.
