Rooted in Victorian times and infused with the energy of today's tech industry, San Francisco is a place where old and new, tradition and innovation, blend seamlessly. West Coast art collectors and designers just as easily mix styles and periods, and flock to find treasures at the San Francisco Fall Antiques Show (FAS) which opened with a sparkling preview gala on Wed. 

The 34th edition of the show, chaired by leading interior designer Suzanne Tucker, runs with the theme Time After Time: Bringing the Past Present, to celebrate the enduring appeal of fine art, furniture and objects.

SFFAS is open through Sunday at San Francisco's Fort Mason Center Festival Pavilion with approximately sixty dealers from across the United States and Europe, offering for sale an extraordinary range of fine and decorative arts.

“This year, we revived the designers' vignettes at the show entry – designed by Ike Kligerman Barkley -  and it is a true highlight as three creative firms, Fisher Weisman, Allison Caccoma and Geoffrey deSousa showcase the passage of time, and the timelessness of art and antiques,” says Tucker.

Programs over the weekend highlight interior designers and their use of art, objects and antiques in today's interiors. Visitors can stop by for the talks, and then browse the show's offerings.
