Since 1993, Ted Boerner and his eponymous San Francisco based design studio have been creating made to order furnishings for real people’s real lives. The designs are equally at home in all settings public and private, modern and transitional. Whether a bed, a table, lighting, chairs or rugs, Ted is inspired by the human body in its quest for comfort and motivated by the desire to cultivate a sense of place and belonging. Ted continues to be greatly influenced by the way people live and engage with each other, our surroundings and the planet, channeling that to create relevant and timeless design.
