Six years ago, Bay Area native, David Caler, opened Bae (pronounced beh) Home & Design with co-owner, Matt Bissinger, in Presidio Heights. The vision was simple: to create a home decor shop that sells items of both luxury and purpose. The two believe that having a beautiful home is about seamlessly blending your get-away-from-it-all sanctuary with your favorite entertaining space.
Much of Bae's merchandise is local or imported from Europe, and combines old-world elegance with modern, eclectic charm. While their furniture selection is next-to-none, we love Bae for their smaller accents and unique gift solutions for Mother's Day, graduations, bridal showers and "just because." Here are our picks for perfect spring gifting.
