Rococo-style burl walnut and carved giltwood mirror. Denmark, circa 1880.
Two things in Eric Petsinger’s life are truly memorable. The first is a day in 1968 when his mother left the house a brunette and came home a blonde. The second was opening epoca, the beautifully edited San Francisco gallery that's been a fixture in the San Francisco Design Center since 2003. In epoca, Eric has created a layered inventory with a something-for-everything approach, blending American and European antiques with 20th-century furnishings. Whether assisting an interior designer or an antiques enthusiast, Eric says “Mix it up! Go ahead and put that shapely French rococo armchair next to a sleek John Widdicomb sofa and see how they bring out each other’s beauty.”
