Bay Area Design News

Pin it button big

There are a lot of changes afoot in the Bay Area design world. Here are just a few that we learned about in the last 24 hours:

• Rena Tom, the proprietress of Rare Device, is moving to San Francisco. While the Brooklyn shop will remain open, a SF one will also open as soon as a location is found. (Send tips on available shop spaces her way.)

Octate is moving to the UK. (We blogged them here.)

The Gardener has finally started an online store. Although it doesn't include all of the lovely items in their brick-and-mortar stores, there's a good sampling. (We keep meaning to blog them, but we always seem to wander in on weekends, when the Berkeley store is packed with people.)
