It would be easy to be disappointed in Cavalier, the new store from interior design star Jay Jeffers and retail guru Michael Purdy. If it were any less spectacular than Jeffers' interiors (many have been featured in the pages of California Home+Design) or not as innovative as Alabaster, the late, great Hayes Valley store that Purdy managed, then their fans would be let down. But if you make your way to this about-to-ignite design hotspot at 1035 Post St. when it opens Tuesday, you will leave inspired. The store is fresh, surprising and insanely creative.

Dying to own a Jay Jeffers-designed sofa or ottoman? They are here. Check out the Kingsley (below), the sofa which, like the store, derives its name from the couple's Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Other items to covet include beautifully embroidered ottomans.
