The design world is constantly on the move in San Francisco. Between new collection launches and showroom openings, it can be hard to keep track. That’s why AD PRO has got you covered with all the news you need to know for the week.
Chase Center to Finally Open
In less than two weeks, the long-awaited Chase Center, the new home of the Golden State Warriors, will open after seven years of design and construction. Designed by Kansas City firm Manica Architecture, with interiors by Jeff Henry of Gensler’s San Francisco office, the exterior consists of perforated white panels, paying homage to both the Bay Area’s fog and its maritime history. The arena includes 44 luxury suites, 32 courtside lounges, 60 theater boxes, a club with marble-and-gold decor, and a Warriors training facility.
Nicolehollis x McGuire Hits Showrooms
Local designer Nicole Hollis has made her furniture debut with McGuire. The 27-piece line, which prioritizes organic, natural materials, lands in showrooms next week. Highlights include statement-making seating, accent pieces, and side tables.
“The Nicolehollis for McGuire collection was influenced by couture, fashion, and the iconic works of Carlo Scarpa,” Hollis tells AD PRO. “We ultimately created a collection that offers artisanal luxury and timeless designs through the use of materials such as Danish cord and honed marble.”
Tina Frey Unveils New Fall Collection
San Francisco–based designer Tina Frey’s minimalist forms take on a more whimsical style with her new Puzzle Table and Stool. She’s also created a modern resin collection with a black rim, and a series of sculptures and bookends shaped to resemble chubby, wriggling worms. The pieces are on display in Frey’s Bayview showroom.

City’s Most Expensive Listing Cuts $4.5 Million From Asking Price
Even after cutting $4.5 million from the asking price, 950 Lombard Street remains the most expensive house on the market in San Francisco. The Russian Hill property was designed by Babac Doane of Ken Linsteadt Architects, spans two lots, and features six bedrooms and eight bathrooms. Developers Troon Pacific purchased the home as a 1908 cottage in 2012 for $4.5 million. The firm then excavated the hillside, expanding the building area to 9,500 square feet.
Clé Tile Debuts Cement Sale
Starting today, Clé Tile will begin its cement sale with $6-per-square-foot deals on select tiles, plus $5-per-foot prices on purchases covering more than 1,000 square feet. The company has chosen some of their most decorative and sustainable cement tiles for the limited two-day event, which ends Thursday.
