Jay Jeffers




I just adore Jay Jeffers' sense of style and his playful designs. Jay Jeffers describes his style as “sophisticated fun,” adding, “You don’t have to take it too seriously.” Yet people in the know take Jeffers quite seriously. He was named one of House Beautiful’s top 100 designers of 2005, earned compliments from the celebrities who hung out in the private lounge he designed for the Screen Actors Guild Awards show, and has attracted commissions for residential and commercial projects all over California.

Jay’s bedroom (shown above) for the 30th Anniversary San Francisco Decorator’s Showhouse features an orange, brown and blue color combination, an antique French art deco settee, a gorgeous ormolu-mounted blue glass chest, and custom clawfoot platform bed, designed by Jay. It's simply beautiful!

I enjoy his work too! I have been following his work ever since he started becoming "famous" and he is very approachable and very nice. I see him at the San Francisco Design Center almost every time I am there.

I love his work too, and that headboard is a favorite, although I hate to admit I had not noticed the clawfoot base, so thanks for pointing that out.
