Open House: Andrew’s San Francisco studio

Open House: Andrew’s San Francisco studio

Andrew Hollingsworth bid Chicago adieu in 2009 when he relocated to San Francisco, trading in his 3400 square-foot Lake Shore Drive condo for a bright and sunny studio with a sleeping loft and large corner windows that overlook the surrounding hilltops.

The den makeover is complete

The den is done, and I like the way it looks. More importantly, I like the way it feels. Having said that, the outcome was kind of an accident.

This Week: Andrew Hollingsworth, Danish Modern Masters 1930 – 1970
