The San Francisco Fall Show (formerly the SF Fall Art & Antiques Show) is back for its 38th run, and as always, it’s gearing up to be a stunner. This year’s theme Wanderlust–Around the World with Art, Antiques, and Design will star the art of globe-trotting, with antiques highlighting transportation and travel. Per tradition, an impressive roster of design celebs will also be on hand to talk design and sign their newest books. If you’re headed to the show (taking place at San Francisco’s Fort Mason Center October 3-6, with the Preview Gala on the 2nd), we’ve compiled the can’t-miss highlights reel, from designer vignettes to book signings. (And if you haven’t officially RSVP-ed for The Show yet, tickets are available here, and the full schedule can be viewed here)!
