For over 40 years, the San Francisco Decorator Showcase has raised over $17 million for the San Francisco University High School financial aid program. Bringing together top design talents to create stunning spaces, the annual Showcase is a highlight of the industry calendar. Since an in-person event was impossible this year, the organization innovated to create New Perspectives, presented by Decorator Showcase and Steelblue. This interactive virtual tour is inspired by 1080 Chestnut Street, a Russian Hill penthouse with 360-degree views of San Francisco. With no physical constraints, as in a traditional showhouses, these spaces gave the designers true license to envision rooms without boundaries.

Below, see spaces from the showcase and learn more about the experience. Be sure to register to attend the virtual tour, and if you’d like to support the San Francisco University High School financial aid program directly, click here. And to see last year’s spaces, see our shoppable 2020 post.
