H.D. Buttercup has finally come to San Francisco and I couldn't be happier! What was once an L.A. only based shop of chic home furnishings, now has quite the presence in San Francisco.
Located in the 35,000-square-foot warehouse that used to be the LIMN in Soma, H.D. Buttercup is easily one of the biggest, most inspiring amusement design shops. As you enter the large warehouse through two massive doors you are instantly greeted by bright lights and mesmerized by all the alcoves, rooms and selections of rare and modern furniture designs.
With the philosophy that "furniture shopping shouldn't take place by turning pages in a catalog" and "mixing and matching is a way of life" it is quite easy to navigate your way through the shop and find eclectic design pairings that are not found at your West Elms and Restoration Hardwares.
H.D. Buttercup has scoured the world to find a curated collection of various design styles at a range of prices (some high and some unbelievably low) all housed under one well-groomed warehouse. With designs from Archipelago, Thom Filicia, Lothantique and Michael Weiss just to name a few, it is no wonder that their inventory changes daily if not hourly. So if you see it and you like it, then you need to buy it. With minimal online presence, no catalogs, no stock inventory and no virtual shopping site, what you see is what you get.
