California, USA - Shane Brown, the big daddy of Big Daddy's Antiques has grown a family of showrooms from the first born in LA to the latest offspring in Seattle. Stepping into their San Francisco location leaves little room to doubt the powerful name. An entrance most visitors could comfortably call their sitting room expands into a big warehouse further back. The environment is familiar and not just because their showrooms have appeared in reality TV shows. I swear I have never seen an episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians"… But Big Daddy's Antiques has a homely familiarity and I was instantly offered an armchair and a drink. Striking a balance of reclaimed materials, one-of-a-kind antiques and reproductions from Europe, their mix of contemporary and antique has attracted big names like Ralph Lauren, Ace Hotels and Pottery Barn, an upmarket home furnishing store that released a capsule collection with Big Daddy's Antiques this spring.
Big Daddy's Antiques has raised a successful offering with showrooms that double as shoot-sets, wedding reception and Taylor Swift spotting locations. Or one could simply soak in the cutting edge art of styling something old with something new from the comfort of a vintage sofa. Big Daddy's Antiques offers plenty to fill a blank space.
