Shopper’s Diary: AREA in San Francisco

April 1, 2009

AREA in Jackson Square is a must-stop on any San Francisco shopping tour; the knowledgeable and exuberant owner John Giacomazzi operates his home and garden store with what he calls a “curator’s perspective,” offering products for the interior and exterior that are inspired by nature. He carries some of our favorite lines: handblown glass lighting by Jeremy Pyles for Niche Modern and ceramics by Piet Stockmans, plus plenty of one-offs you won’t find elsewhere. Giacomazzi is also the creator of our recent DIY: Glass Orb Cluster Light.
