Shopper’s Diary: Obsolete in San Francisco

May 15, 2009

From Julie & Janet:

Great news for residents and visitors to the Bay Area: Obsolete, the much-admired, slightly under-the-radar LA-based purveyor of vintage lighting, curiosities, eccentric European furniture, and other artistic artifacts, has teamed up with Blackman Cruz and Therien & Co. Antiques in Potrero Hill in San Francisco. At the opening a couple of nights ago, we were particularly taken with the vintage Italian light fixtures, glass vessels, and antique industrial clocks on display. Owner Ray Azoulay travels to Europe every month and comes home with eccentric objects from different eras and places—medical diagrams, religious statuary, industrial objects, furniture, light fixtures—that double as lighting, furniture, and home accessories.
