New Book: Contemporary Classical

We’re excited to announce that we have a new favorite coffee table book - Contemporary Classical. San Francisco architect, Andrew Skurman is known for his refined classical architecture and his superbly polished and elegant work. Contemporary Classical showcases an exceptional range of residential work. We’ve always admired his work and I’m proud to highlight this book on my living room coffee table. Andrew thanks for this new and inspiring book.

Press: San Francisco Chronicle

This summer we had the opportunity to work on an exciting new project – transforming a luxury residence on the largest privately owned yacht on the planet, The World. The timeline was incredibly short, the quarters tight and the security even tighter however, Kendall Wilkinson Design was up for the challenge!

Pop on over to full article to read about all about the project, working with Homeland Security and how we ultimately sourced and installed everything in 24 hours. It's always a pleasure being included in the Chronicle; thank you to the team that put this piece together!

Field Trip: Heath Ceramics

Sometimes I forget how lucky we are in the Bay Area. We have amazing shops and factories here in San Francisco. A few weeks ago we took a tour of Heath Ceramics while we were sourcing dinnerware for a client. When you walk through the space you realize how small the factory is for the amount they produce. A fun fact: The factory is located on a former wartime ship yard in Sausalito that was left plenty of scrap metal on the property – Heath converted a lot of the scrap that was left into factory parts and equipment, all of which remains onsite today. Edith Heath, the founder created all of new colors for each season until she passed away in 2005. The company now produces each line with Edith in mind. My current favorite color is the citron – it’s a lovely pop of color that feel fresh and modern!

Here are a few pictures from our tour. If you come to SF be sure to check out the Sausalito factory store or the brand new San Francisco flagship in Potrero Hill (it’s breathtaking).
