Come out February 3rd-February 5th to Design San Francisco, an event with speakers, discussions, and showrooms waiting to invigorate and inspire the design-inclined.  Bonus: Visit Murray’s Iron Works and you can admire how some crafty Lila B. Design arrangements partner with custom furniture designs!

We were given the liberty to enliven the old world elegance of Murray’s Iron Works (known for producing some of the finest custom-made iron furniture and lighting available anywhere in the world) with succulent landscapes and select local blooms. Join us there at 3pm on Thursday to learn about custom furniture design from Gil Mendez, an accomplished designer with Murray’s Iron Works that we love.  Mendez will lead a lively discussion tracing the design process from conceptual sketch to fabrication drawing from many years of experience.

Let the blacksmithing begin!
