Feeling good at home, it means finding furniture and decoration to his liking. In the Bay, there is a wide range of possibilities, ranging from the small independent shop of the district to the world-famous chains. There is something for every style and every budget. Selection of signs to create a customized cocoon.

In business class: high-end designers
It is a place that welcomes interior designers looking for inspiration: the San Francisco Design Center, in the heart of the city. There are more than 100 showrooms for 2,000 manufacturers. Number of prizes are only on request … Other renowned venues for the luxurious contemporary: Blu Dot, Design Within Reach or The Future Perfect, with limited editions and unique items, worth several thousand dollars. For a European touch, DZINE offers furniture with Italian accents and the French houses Ligne Roset and Roche Bobois are distinguished by their collaborations with big names. For a cheaper modern "Made in America": Room and Board, where you can buy a table for less than $ 1,000. A deal!

If you want a traditional, rustic and warm, with wooden furniture, rows of cushions, and accessories in the colors of the seasons, we go through Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, West Elm or Williams Sonoma Home. In a more contemporary style, the Z Gallerie offers a large selection of furniture and art. With balances to watch. For those who prefer intimate boutiques, Echo Furniture presents a beautiful variety of brands. We remain in high price categories, a chair being on average 200 dollars.

In eco class
Ikea and her soft Swedish furniture are comforting. A reference for a good value for money. Two stores serve the region: Emeryville and Palo Alto. For relatively similar modern designs and prices that are still available, take a ride at Crate & Barrel, CB2 or EQ3. The chains Target and Walmart reserve their side of good surprises at very reasonable prices.

Local flea markets make it possible to do business, like vintage stores where you can find treasures. Special mention to Big Daddy's Antiques, Carousel Consignment and Stuff in SF. Prices vary however from cheap to very high. If you want lower rates, the Craiglist or Facebook Marketplace is full of ads and you can negotiate. The garage sales that flourish on weekends are also opportunities to furnish low cost.

In fuzzy mode
By staying on the lookout for what's on the streets, you'll find wonders. San Francisco is known for its departures and arrivals, and many are getting rid of their furniture on the sidewalks. Sofas, beds, dressers, chairs, lamps … we can furnish ourselves for free by using. Curiosity and patience as a wallet.
