Lundberg Design is a San Francisco-based twenty person architectural firm founded by Olle Lundberg in 1987 that does work for private and commercial clients throughout the United States. We specialize in high-end modern design, with no particular emphasis on any particular building type. While the core of our practice is architectural, we remain committed to providing design at many levels and are often involved in product, landscape, graphic, and sculpture design. Our signature style tends to be characterized by sculptural form, simply and elegantly executed, with a firm belief in the importance of the carefully thought out detail.
We also have our own dedicated 4,000 sq. ft. metal fabrication facility for custom design work and experimentation. All of the design work is centered on the qualities of materials – how they can be plied, bent and cut to produce a visual and tactile result. We are a firm that loves the physical qualities of the objects we create.
We are located in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco, in a 1933 mattress factory building. It is a perfect building for the kind of firm we are – raw concrete walls and exposed timber trusses, with high volumes and enough square footage to house our architectural practice, fabrication shop, and even a work-week apartment for Olle. The practice has always been very diverse – we have designed homes, restaurants, wineries, corporate headquarters, distilleries, hotels, apartment buildings, bars, lobbies, and even San Francisco’s bus shelters. We describe our style as “nature-inspired modernism,” and we strive for elegant, simple solutions in our work. We like materials with substance – wood, stone, steel; materials with heft and texture – really the opposite of veneer. For us the making of architecture is a collaborative act; between ourselves and especially with our clients – while we aim for poetry we also pride ourselves on making buildings that work very, very well.

At Paper Source, we are committed to innovation and original design, offering an assortment that allows our customers to express themselves through inspired creativity. Our goal is to continue to bring the unique Paper Source experience closer to our customers by opening new stores around the country and expanding the product offering on our web site.
Paper Source was founded in 1983 by Sue Lindstrom, a woman who was delightfully obsessed with paper. Inspired by the traditional papermaking artistry in Japan, Sue opened the first Paper Source store in Chicago to showcase beautiful handcrafted papers from around the world. Through the years, Paper Source grew its product offering beyond fine paper and expanded its reach with the introduction of a robust web store and a wholesale division, Waste Not Paper. Today, Paper Source has dedicated design and product development teams that produce exclusive new kits, stationery, gift wrap and invitation designs each year.
In 2007, Paper Source received an infusion of growth capital from Brentwood Associates, a private equity investment firm with a shared passion for the Paper Source brand and a likeminded goal for nurturing and growing consumer businesses. Sue and her business partner Jim York carefully selected Brentwood and together they brought in Sally Pofcher as CEO. Under Sally's leadership, Paper Source has stepped up its commitment to the environment and opened 9 new stores, bringing our total to 30 stores in 13 states, with plans to open more stores in 2009.
What's with the wasp?The diligent paper wasp creates its nest by chewing bark and leaves into a paper-like pulp, and thus receives our affectionate designation as the original paper maker.
So, in tribute to our fellow paper aficionado, fold yourself an origami cup and offer a papery toast to the insect who started it all!
Design Within Reach is the source for smart solutions. Our business started when our founder tried to furnish his apartment with the classics he'd come to appreciate while living in London. What he discovered was that acquiring these clean, simple and well-designed products was neither clean nor simple.
There had to be a better way, so in 1999 we bought 20 containers of product, mailed out a catalog and waited for the phone to ring. (It didn't for 24 hours, until we realized the nighttime answering machine had been accidentally left on.) The rest, as they say, is history. By giving customers access to these items, which are brilliantly conceived, simply executed and consistent with the enduring principles of modernism, we made design within reach.
