About request an edit to this page

Limn, which means to draw or illuminate in old English, carries the kind of audacious masterpieces you might think are only possible in the movies-the furniture portion of the place is like a gallery on its own. Initially envisioned as a drafting studio for architects and artists in San Francisco, Limn expanded to incorporate fine art and quickly became popular for its adventurous forays into modern furniture, lighting, and accessories. From Cappellini's pointillist-splattered loveseat to Marcel Wanders' plaited carbon armchair (entitled the Fishnet) to Gaetano Pesce's humanoid sofas dressed in stretch fabric, Limn's retro-future products are primarily European in origin and often sold for the first time outside of Europe.

- Excerpt from Interior Inspiration by Nirmala Nataraj


Before there was an AT&T Park or a completely new Mission Bay/Townsend Street Neighborhood, there was Limn.   Back when the area was just warehouses.   Limn has been a force for fine furniture and art in San Francisco for some time now.   Truly a San Francisco institution.
