Good stuff for you and your home. That's what Rare Device is all about. The shop by Rena Tom moved from Brooklyn to San Francisco in October 2007. It carries one-of-a-kind pieces for the home, each with a story... Their site states this "criteria" for their pieces: "Every object in the store... has been chosen because it is either handmade, well-designed, useful, beautiful or all of the above. The aesthetic is modern and quirky while remaining warm and inviting."
So, if you're in the San Francisco area, check them out and see what you think! (Or shop online or read the Rare Device blog.) Also, check our San Francisco's coverage of the store here.
