Thanks to everyone for a wonderful 2021 Fall Open Studios at our Islais Creek Workshop!

A Year Later.... It's a Different World

2020 Fall Open Studios... Thank you to everyone who visited our virtual booth!

Our Fall Open Studios this year looked a bit different due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.  Since we couldn't throw open our studio doors to the public, we participated in two online virtual booth events through Hunters Point Shipyard Artists (Sunday, September 27) and ArtSpan SFOS (Thursday, October 8).  

For a virtual tour of our studio and to hear Rick Bulan talk about his designs, click here to watch the VAST Video produced by ArtSpan for 2020 SFOS:




Going forward... While we cannot allow large public gatherings at our studios, we are still able to schedule individual one-on-one appointments to visit our workshop with health and safety protocols in place.  Masks are required, and only individuals from the same household can visit at one time.  

If you do wish to come into the workshop to see a design, purchase a piece, or schedule an order pick-up, feel free to contact us at info@goldengatefurniture.com or at 415-661-6263 to schedule a time to visit.

Featured in San Francisco Chronicle!


SFChronicle Article Golden Gate Furniture Co.

Did you see us in the San Francisco Chronicle?  Wonderful article by Anna Bauman with photos by Kate Munsch featured in the SF Chronicle on September 22, 2019... Click here to read it:



Golden Gate Bridge steel is this artist’s career. What happens when it runs out?

Rick Bulan rests his hand on a worn 12-foot chunk of steel in his San Francisco warehouse workshop, ticking off the items he imagines turning it into.

Maybe two headboards, a few coffee tables and a bunch of business card holders. Or perhaps a dining table and lots of jewelry.
The red steel will be sandblasted, raced on, cut and welded into ordinary pieces of furniture, but its origin is unmistakable — the Golden Gate Bridge.

“When I make stuff from it, you can tell where it comes from. It’s very distinct,” Bulan said. “No other bridge has that.”
