One of our favorite SF dining destinations is the Fillmore Street outpost of Delfina—so much so that we decided to deconstruct the interiors.
Designed by Envelope A+D (the architects of the Clipper Street Residence: see Back in Black), the interior features easily replicable elements: Staach chairs in three shades—gray, white, black—standard-issue penny tile flooring, and lights by Droog.
Above: Staach Cain Collection Chairs; $380 a pair at Design Public.
Above: Darjeeling Dining Table; $899 (down from $999) at CB2.
Above: Droog Soft Lamp; $306 at YLiving.
Above: White Nemo Penny Round Tile.
Above: The exterior features an acid yellow door and a glossy gray painted facade; use a Dutch Door Paint Kit from Fine Paints of Europe; $128, and consider Benjamin Moore's Iron Mountain for the exterior. If you have the nerve to go neon, consider Fluorescent Brushable Paint; £29.90 per liter at The UV Centre (international shipping available). Another option is Krylon's lemon-yellow Fluorescent Spray Paint; $5.39 from Amazon. Another idea: Cellulosic Fluorescent Yellow Paint, which is typically used on surfboards; $90.35 per liter from Viral Surf.
Above: For similar door numbers, consider Deep Ribbon House Numbers from Weston.
