Steal This Look: Farina in San Francisco
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
One of our favorite SF design haunts is the Mission District restaurant Farina , designed by Brett Terpeluk (his design credits include a decade spent working with Renzo Piano in Italy) and Monica Viarengo. So much so that we've put together a Steal This Look on the space, which features classic modern Italian lighting and a distinctive marble bar. The Louise Nevelson–inspired marble counter (pieced together from vintage sink basins) is by Nathan Hunt of Hunt Studios in San Francisco; the round tables feature tops repurposed from the establishment's former signage. Read about the project in the SF Chronicle and see Cesar Rubio's photos at SF Gate . Photos by Cesar Rubio and Joe Fletcher, courtesy of Studio Terpeluk .
