There are several design shops that grace San Francisco with panache, but Anyon Atelier is more than a shop, it is the ultimate design destination. Founded by Lindsay Brier, who grew up in the East Bay and coincidentally went to the same high school as me, it is difficult to enter her store without wanting…everything. Lindsay has created a serene yet refined environment, where neutral shades envelope your senses with a calm vibe, and coastal art, plush pillows and entertaining accents abound that would make any room feel complete. Come see the personal picks that Lindsay loves, and see how Anyon Atelier is a leading force in Bay Area design.
I feel so lucky to have been born in San Francisco and raised in the East Bay. Berkeley/Oakland has a wonderful range of architecture. It is home to an incredible community of artists and is arguably the most culturally diverse area of the Bay Area. It is a community of open minded risk takers which translates directly to design.
What is your design philosophy? To create environments that better our clients’ lives by infusing beauty and function.
What surprises people when they walk through the door? The art!
What design publications inspire you? I love reading a good magazine such as Elle Decor, Architectural Digest, C Home but inspiration is everywhere on blogs such as yours and Pinterest and Instagram.
We asked Lindsay to give us her top stylish picks for the home, and keep reading for details on why she loves them:
LINDSAY’S PERSONAL PICKS FROM ANYON ATELIER
Stephen Gerould Ceramic Lamp – I love the undulating lines of this ceramic lamp hand thrown by master ceramicist Stephen Gerould in the Pacific Northwest. His bespoke line includes dozens of color options to perfect your home’s lighting.
Vintage Cocktail Glassware – I keep vintage glassware on hand for impromptu gatherings of friends. Throw an Indian Summer cocktail party with these casual glam pink and gold leaf lattice high ball glasses.
Tisch New York Placemats – These Tisch placemats are like your most versatile dress–they can so easily be dressed up or down depending on the dining occasion and wiping them clean with a sponge is a dream. They are in constant rotation in my home.
Compartmentalized Tray by Alice Taschney – I love the lines of Marin County-based artist and designer Alice Tachney’s collection of hand crafted goods. This multipurpose tray is inspired by the Marin Headlands and is available in three sizes.
Hand-Marbled Silk Pillow – Each season, the Atelier waits breathlessly to see the first previews of Paige Cleveland’s limited edition hand-marbled silk pillow collections. With this “Anacapri” pillow, you can almost feel the Mediterranean Sea breeze.
Faceted Porcelain Vase – The dynamic ceramic presence of this faceted vase drew my eye. The graphic nature of the vase looks lovely juxtaposed with organic blooms like bells of Ireland and also stands alone as a sculptural piece.
Scandinavian Copper and Enamel Bowl – The rose copper exterior and brilliant teal enamel interior makes the most stunning combination on these Copenhagen-made bowls. They are also food safe–an art object that has functional appeal.
Porthole Circular Mirror – This small circular mirror brings a such a playful feel to any wall. The brass detailing on the inner edge of the wood frame makes a lovely reflection in the mirror’s elegant beveled edge.
What is your favorite item here? Its hard to choose. Head over to Anyon to see these beauties for yourself.
