March, the kitchen and pantry shop in San Francisco’s Pacific Heights, has a permanent position on the favorites list here at Remodelista. Thanks to the curation of owner Sam Hamilton, it presents kitchenware as couture–and is one of the few places in the US where you can find designs by Michael Verheyden, Jasper Conran, John Pawson, and Brickett Davada.
For those outside the Bay Area, we have good news: March recently launched an online shop setup for US shipments (inquire about international orders). March initially offered a full range of home furnishings; two years ago, inspired by the Bay Area’s slow food movement, Hamilton transformed it into a concept shop with a laser focus on the kitchen and tabletop. Here’s a look at some of our favorite March designs (Aga cooker included)–all available online.
Above: March is an official stockist for the Aga Cooker, the heart of the traditional English kitchen. It’s available in several models with two to four ovens (in natural gas, electric, or propane) and in 12 colors as well as custom options. Each is manufactured in England to order; visit March or contact for more information.
Above: The Brown on Cream Splatterware Platter is 17 inches in diameter and made in Italy of glazed earthenware; $118.
Above: Exclusive to March, the Pot Rack with Shelf is made in the US from oiled steel. The rack is a special order item and can be customized; $2,400.
Above: The Aga Matte Black Cast Iron Egg Fryer is $140.
Above: One of our favorite mugs, the Jasper Conran at Wedgwood Casual Breakfast Mug has subtle striations in the off-white glazed earthenware; $18 each.
