As one of the Bay Area's most celebrated interior designers, Jonathan Rachman brings an international story to all of his work. Born in Sumatra, Jonathan developed an appreciation of Indonesia’s natural beauty and attention to detail in the craftsmanship of their furniture, textiles, and sculpture. An education in Switzerland afforded him the luxury of traveling across Europe to some of the best antiques markets in the world. Living in Paris, he frequented its famed flea market and developed a keen eye for collections, something for which he’s now well regarded. Rachman is also known for the buying trips he takes with clients around the world. His knowledge of other countries, their markets, and their languages gives him confidence to lead clients to the best each place has to offer. He opened his first antiques and floral design shop in the heart of San Francisco. It became a favorite of design enthusiasts and the media alike, and Rachman began giving patrons advice on interior design. That led him to start his own design firm.
