FBD Takes New Designer on a San Francisco Showroom Tour

We’re excited to welcome Christin Kimball to our growing family. Together with Ashley, we now have two designers. We’re growing in more ways than one as both Ashley and Christin have 20-month-old toddlers, and Ashley has another baby on the way. Our showroom tours were productive, but there is more to explore. We plan on returning in January to continue Christin’s education and introduce her to more of the people we work with.

Office Space converted to Fire Department Dorm

Facilities By Design recently worked with the Marin County Fire Department to create a dorm suite to accommodate up to 30 fire personnel. As the County has faced many fire warnings over the past years, this space becomes very active on occasions when the County is under a red flag warning holding extra personnel overnight. FBD has helped to create a comfortable home away from home to house these overnight firefighters and provide them with a place to sleep, work, eat, and gather while not actively fighting fires.

Eames Family Home Tour – Summer 2015

Facilities By Design was honored to receive an invite to this special event hosted by Luisa Demetruis. Luisa is the granddaughter of Charles and Ray Eames and lead this final tour through her grandparents home and workspace. Eames furniture is a classic example of mid-century design that is a basis for many current contract furniture styles to this day. Ashley and I were inspired to spend the day learning about the history and art of such a valuable contemporary in the field. In addition we enjoyed a thought provoking conversation with other design professionals from the South bay and San Francisco. The family is selling the property and moving the archives to their southern California facility and the National archives in Washington DC.
