In the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco interior designer Nicole Hollis successfully renovates this 1940s home.

She designed the solid French oak dining table and bench, which were fabricated by B Serota Furniture and Architectural Design, and flanked the table with a Host and Hostess chair from Coup d'Etat San Francisco.
