H. D. Buttercup, The Furniture Marketplace


H. D. Buttercup opened their doors in San Francisco recently, and I finally paid a visit. All I can say is "Wow!"

30,000 square feet of "something for everyone." I took the liberty of photographing some of my favorite pieces like this sofa slipcovered in a French linen stripe fabric.

What makes this store different from other furniture stores, is that if you love a piece, you can take it home right then and there! Their merchandise changes daily, even hourly, so you never know what you're going to find.

Of course, they do have custom options too. But H. D Buttercup's philosophy is that furniture shopping shouldn't take place by turning the pages in a catalog.

They also believe that "your home is a reflection of your personal style. It's more than a single look, more than a single brand."

They carry such a diverse collection of furniture, lighting, bedding, rugs etc., all at different price ranges. I couldn't believe how reasonably priced most of their merchandise is.

I fell in love with this bookcase. It is really wonderful!

Although I can't recall the exact price of the bookcase, I know it wasn't more than $1500.

It occurred to me, that a person could instantly furnish an entire house in one day!
Love this chair? Great, wrap it up! How often can you do that?

And how often can you find unique, fabulous lighting like the pair of wooden chandeliers above?

Or this wood beaded chandelier....

This is where I found the turquoise chandelier that I didn't buy!

Sitting just under it was this turquoise velvet chair.
My head was spinning!

Another unique lamp.

I love this collection of distressed pottery lamps.

H. D. Buttercup also carries high end linens like Sferra, including Kelly Wearstler for Sferra and Pine Cone Hill. Their LA location has a showroom called Dream, featuring natural mattresses and fine linens.

What did I buy? Well, I was tempted to buy this coffee table for our living room in Asti.
We have been looking to replace the coffee table that came with the house for two years.
Mr. A wasn't too sure about it, but I do think it is unique and would fit perfectly there.

I ended up buying this little table for the pool house bedroom. I love how much it is weathered and think it will be a nice contrast to the vintage wicker one on the other side of the bed.
How great that we could just walk out with it!

H.D. Buttercup carries such designers as Ralph Lauren, Lillian August, Annie Selke, Lee, Patine, Cisco Home, Archepelago and Maison to name a few. Check out their website here.

H. D. Buttercup believes that designing and shopping should be fun!
I couldn't agree more!


Pin It!

I love the new look on the blog mom!
I'm obsessed with that turquoise chandelier, and that couch with the red stripes looks like your Ralph in the sun room!

Delores, this looks like a find! How I wish we had such resources here. The table looks to be perfect for the pool house. I like the coffee table too! What fun to be furnishing a home. ;-)

Yesterday, I was cleaning out and was about to throw away several Traditional Home magazines and of course, I flipped through one and a turquoise chandelier priced at $6,900 caught my eye. I thought of you. It was the October 2008 issue. It is so hard for me to throw out magazines but you can't keep them all.

H.D. Buttercup is fabulous. I like everything and "Wow" was my first sentiment of the mirror photo too! You are lucky to have such lovely places to shop.

Delores,
Adore your new accent table! Thank you for sharing this furniture showcase with us! I agree, you should be able to buy something and take it home with you! Lovely post full of inspirational interior design ideas!
Fondly,
Pat

These pictures took my breath away!

I have been struggling with wanting to redecorate but still love many of the things that I have collected over the past decade (or two!). These pictures make me want to make some changes NOW!

If only I lived closer. Wish they had a location in Atlanta...

Simone said...

Wow! I need to furnish a casita for my parents. Thanks for the tip, I am planning a shopping trip!

Firstly let me say how much I love your new look here - really SO much better expresses your refined aesthetic!! And this store looks fabulous!! Thank goodness I live no where near San Francisco - temptation might be too much!!

What a fabulous place...wish I lived out there to go and look.. Those distressed lamps might be my favorite: we were at Crate yesterday and it seemed to me they were all the same 'ole thing. I want something different!
Hope we'll be seeing more from here on your blog Delores!

The table you got for the guest room is adorable and I also love the coffee table Mr. A wasn't sure about! Love it! Thanks for the tour of this great store!!! XO, Pinky

Kifus said...

Wow, Delores! I think I should move near where you live! All these fantastic shops near you. Love your pics and if I could choose I think I'd take the ottoman and the yellow lanterns. Your distressed little table is gorgeous!

*** WHY, oh WHY, Delores, don't we have PLACES LIKE THIS here in the Tucson area???? ~ (Geez, "we ain't got nuttin', honey!") ~

...Annnnnd, I'd reeeeally like to buy that turquoise chandelier!!! Have seen them before but can't e*v*e*r find the info I NEED!!! Since I have a growing collection of antique, vintage & new turquoise jewelry (remember, I live in AZ!?!), plus pieces that are NOT jewelry, this would be FAB in our bedroom... (it would be rather "too girly" to my hubby, if it WEREN'T turquoise, which HE also likes alot!!!)... Hmmmm... can you help???

Warmest weekend hugs,
Linda
