Embarking Upon a New and Exciting Year!

As the holiday festivities wind down, it is time to reflect upon the accomplishments of the past year and look forward to the exciting events of the New Year that lies before us….

New Space, New Look, New Designs

After many years of quietly maintaining the company, Richard decided that this would be the year to finally bring about the changes he has hoped to make for quite some time. In this past year, Richard was able to realize his dream of having his own space to showcase his designs in by setting up a small showroom in Pacifica, located on the Coastside, just south of San Francisco. Golden Gate Bridge Furniture Company also launched a newly redesigned website, as well as three new product designs: the Coffee Table, the Side Table, and the Task Lamp.

The first of these new designs, the Coffee Table, was launched this past summer. The Coffee Table, a lightweight design that incorporates new steel, provides an alternative to our original, and heavier, Cocktail Table design, which is crafted from 100% of the historic Golden Gate Bridge steel. In the autumn, Richard followed with a Side Table design that complements the new Coffee Table. The Side Table is another lightweight design that incorporates new steel with historic steel, allowing for more flexibility within small spaces. Finally, in December, Richard introduced the new Task Lamp design to fill the void created by the completion of the original Desk Lamp design’s production run.

Architectural Digest Home Design Show

As we move into the New Year, we are very excited to announce that Golden Gate Bridge Furniture Co. will be an exhibitor in the MADE section of the Architectural Digest Home Design Show in New York this March. This is a very distinguished design show that we are proud to be a part of, and we can’t wait to unveil our designs in New York for the first time!

Golden Gate Bridge 75th Anniversary

Additionally, it is an exciting year for the Golden Gate Bridge itself, since it will be celebrating its 75th Anniversary this year! The Golden Gate Festival will take place on May 26 and May 27 with waterfront festivities on Crissy Field and the Marina Green, culminating with a fireworks display during the Memorial Day weekend.

America’s Cup Racing

Finally, the crown jewel of the year’s events surrounding the Golden Gate Bridge will be the spectacular racing of the America’s Cup, which will take place on San Francisco’s Northern Waterfront. The Golden Gate Bridge and the surrounding beauty of the bay will provide the dramatic backdrop to the sleek boats racing across the waterfront. The races are expected to attract tens of thousands of visitors from around the world, many sailing in under the Golden Gate Bridge themselves upon their arrival.

Happy New Year from Golden Gate Bridge Furniture Company!
