I have been selling his beautiful furnishings to my clients for umpteen ( give or take a few) years. He is represented by Dennis Miller Associates at the New York Design Center in NYC…those of you who follow me know that the Dennis Miller showroom is numero uno in my book.
I recently had the good fortune to spend some time talking with Jiun . Our conversation got around to Jiun Ho de Jia in San Francisco, and he whipped out the ole iPad to show me different pictures of the glorious pieces displayed there and the overall design of the space. It really looks divine!
Situated in the center of the SOMA district the showroom/gallery is an old 11,000 sq.ft. warehouse converted into a spectacular showcase for Jiun Ho and his personal collection of furnishings, art and antiques from his travels around the world.
The architecture and design is definitely industrial with a soft Eastern bent. With custom metalwork and soaring ceilings, exposed beams and exquisite woodworking and cabinetry the showroom emulates Jiun’s good taste and grand style.
There will also be rotating art and craft exhibitions. Presently the photographs of Rodney Smith are on exhibit and they are fabuloso! They are full of whimsey and sophisticated commentary on life today in this wild and crazy world.
AND if you cannot get on a plane and hop out there and want to see some of Jiun Ho’s unique pieces, just go to the web site, take a peek, and purchase whatever your heart desires! I am sure after you check out the extraordinary aesthetic of Jiun Ho you will become a super devotee to his furnishings and style.
