The Mission's Industrial Craft is a beautifully curated new store, and everything in it—decor, furniture, apothecary, accessories and gifts—is worthy of a magazine spread.
Lovers of beautiful things, your credit card's about to get a workout at Industrial Craft.

There's been lots of construction going on in the Inner Mission of late. Several new apartment buildings and new places to imbibe (looking at you Liliana) have cropped up, as has our most recent discovery: Industrial Craft. Located on a charming part of Florida Street between 18th and 19th streets, the small brick-and-mortar is a design aesthete's dream. Sharply curated, it's home to a variety of stuff you're gonna want (need is a question for another day).
With a focus on "objects with meaning," its shelves are filled with a blend of new and iconic pieces from emerging and established brands across myriad categories including housewares, apothecary, furniture, accessories, decorative objects, and select vintage pieces. Great place for gifts, too. Clearly, founder/curator Max Burton loves what he does and has a designer's eye to match the pristine wares.
