Opening May 1 in San Francisco, Cavalier unites the talents of interior designer Jay Jeffers and creative director Michael Purdy. Jeffers and Purdy will focus on finely crafted goods for the home with a textured, masculine edge.

Cavalier showcases carefully curated new, bespoke and vintage pieces. It is the exclusive source for Jay Jeffers’ debut collection of California made upholstery, furniture and  lighting, as well as the sole stockist for a limited‐edition selection of home furnishings and accessories created in partnership with designers from around the world, including metal smith Paul Benson and plaster master Stephen Antonson.

Cavalier’s offerings include furniture by Austin‐based Howl Studios, vessels and objects by Brooklyn‐based ceramist Shizue Imai, jewelry by San Francisco’s Alex & Lee, Merida’s new custom woven‐wool Sweater Collection rugs, limited edition acrylics by Alexandra Von Furtstenberg and Brooklyn‐based Bellocq Tea Atelier’s divine handcrafted blends. The store will also showcase fine art, lighting, cashmere and alpaca throws, leather goods, pillows, fragranced candles and books. Diehard globetrotters Jeffers and Purdy will keep the Cavalier retail flagship fresh with new home décor discoveries, antiques and vintage pieces.

Cavalier is located in the Tenderloin in the front of Jeffers’ 4,000‐square‐foot design studio. Cavalier hopes to be a gathering spot and a venue for special events including trunk shows, art exhibitions, wine tastings and book signings.

Cavalier’s offerings will be sold to the design trade and to the public through its retail flagship and ecommerce partner, DeringHall.com.
