If you're planning to walk into Sue Fisher King's retail space on Sacramento Street, be prepared to drool.
That's because SFK specializes in top-of-the-line opulence, and all of it tasteful: Parma towels, handmade ceramic table lamps, Mirella Spinella silk velvet bed covers, Anka Drechsel embroidered pillows, decoupaged tableware, Venetia Stadium and Murano glass chandeliers, deeply hued enameled stone tables...
SFK seeks out homewares that are unique and unusual, "even to the person who's been around," she says.
She stocks bedding, tableware, bathware, lighting, and a small selection of furniture. Her guilded touch is really apparent in the realm of textiles--bedding, pillows, place mats, tablecloths--as well as on the store's display beds and tables, which are a feast of color and ornate texture.
Prices at Sue Fisher King are what you'd expect for the lux ho (lux(ury) ho(me)) aesthetic: on the high end.
But because there are $5 soaps and $10 napkin rings as well as $350 waste baskets and $1500 table covers, there's something for even the browser.
Sue Fisher King is currently raving about a new line of scalloped-edge crispy cotton percale sheets, which are not the most expensive in the store (they start at $99 for a pair of pillow cases), but feel really wonderful.
The SFK web site provides a good sense of SFK's style, but no e-commerce.
