Apartment Therapy: The SF Modernism Show and Sale Is This Weekend

Make like Antiques Roadshow, and delight your inner decorator at this year’s SF Modernism show and sale. Whether you’re obsessed with art deco or gaga for midcentury modern, the 20th-century design exhibition is a treasure trove of collectibles. Look out for gems by architect Frank Lloyd Wright, pottery by artist Van Briggle, a Stickley craftsman leather chair, and funky Bakelite bracelets. If you’re not in the market to buy, check out the display of textile designs by Oakland-based Dianne Ayres or the fashion show featuring Gatsby-era vintage clothes and accessories. Aug. 13–14; Concourse Exhibition Center, 635 Eighth St. (at Brannan), sfmodernism.com
