Longtime friends Charles Almond and Steve Hartzog recently opened Almond Hartzog in San Francisco, a gallery specializing in collectible 20th century furniture and contemporary art from Scandinavia, France, Italy, and the US. Both Almond and Hartzog have collected furniture over the years, and their combined love of 20th century design, a stint in Paris, and an opportunity to do something new inspired them to open their own store. Almond is the cerebral historian, while Hartzog, a former gallery owner, focuses on the craft and finish of an object. Their collaboration has resulted in a collection of not-seen-everywhere classics; in addition to their SF outpost, the duo has a temporary gallery in Paris (which they ultimately hope to turn into a permanent space). Go to Almond Hartzog to see the full range of offerings.
