Dwell On Design Press Release

Golden Gate Bridge Furniture Co. to Debut New Designs at
2012 Dwell On Design Show in Los Angeles

The company that crafts unique artisan furniture from original steel removed from San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge will debut two large table designs at the Dwell On Design Show in Los Angeles this June.
Pacifica, CA (June 1, 2012) Golden Gate Bridge Furniture Company (GGBFC) is preparing to exhibit their product line of limited edition furniture crafted from original steel off the Golden Gate Bridge at the upcoming Dwell On Design show in Los Angeles.  GGBFC, who will be exhibiting their unique hand crafted designs in Booth 408, plans to debut two new large table designs: The Executive Desk and The Conference Table.

GGBFC is the brainchild of San Francisco area resident, Richard Bulan.  The company creates limited edition artisan furniture from original steel that was placed on the Golden Gate Bridge during its construction in the 1930’s.  Richard crafts his designs from sections of pedestrian handrail that were removed during the Bridge’s handrail replacement in 1993.  He acquired the handrail in 1994 and has since created and put into limited production a headboard design, nine table designs, and two lamp designs. 

Dwell on Design, the largest design show on the West Coast, will be taking place from Friday, June 22 to Sunday, June 24 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.  GGBFC will be exhibiting their designs in Booth 408.  “This is the first time in many years that we have been able to exhibit at a show in Southern California,” says Richard Bulan.  “I’m excited to return to the area and to debut our new Executive Desk and Conference Table designs.”  The large Executive Desk design, which incorporates salvaged Claro Walnut as its desk top, and Conference Table design necessitated a much larger booth space than usual.  “In the past, our tables have been moderate to small side and accent tables, which didn’t require a large booth.  These new designs required us to have a much larger display space.  It is actually the first time we have ever had a booth this big.  It has presented us with a bit of a challenge this time around, but it should be well worth it.”

To learn more about the company and its designs, GGBFC invites you to visit them at the Dwell on Design exhibition in Booth 408.  The show is open Friday June 22 from 10am to 8pm, Saturday, June 23, 10am to 6pm, and Sunday June 24, 10am to 5pm.   Richard Bulan can be contacted directly by phone at 415-661-6263 or by email at  For additional information on the company, feel free to visit the GGBFC website at  For more information on the Dwell on Design exhibition, visit
