SF's own slice of ABC Carpet & Home—in the form of Madeline Weinrib's new showroom—is now open to retail and trade clients alike. It's her second independent outpost, following an opening in New York City in 2012. But it's not just the textiles that have gone bi-coastal. Weinrib herself—granddaughter to ABC's founder—plans to make SF her home away from home. She tells the Chronicle, "I'm really looking forward to coming to San Francisco more as part of my job." And she describes her choice of SF over LA as intuitive:
I seem to make all my decisions, including my designing, intuitively. I didn't do any research. No marketing. It just felt right. There seems to be a very strong design community here. It's a stylish place - casual, but stylish.
Visit Weinrib's 4,000-square-foot showroom to see her intuitive, colorful designs. And here's to hoping she brings the illustrious Madeline Weinrib sample sale to her West Coast location.
