STORE TO HOME SIMPLE ABUNDANCE Hudson Grace, an inspired new San Francisco housewares shop, revels in the serenity of classic design W hen Monelle Totah, former vice president of product design for Williams-Sonoma, and friend Gary McNatton, an award-winning product, packaging, and fragrance designer, decided to open a housewares shop in San Francisco’s picturesque Presidio Heights neighborhood, they drew inspiration from the classics. “We love the simplicity of a perfect white dinner plate,” says Totah, “and the beauty of an oversize linen napkin, and those oversize serving pieces that are so key to gracious entertaining.” With these essentials in mind, the pair founded Hudson Grace, which trades in everything from hand-dipped cathedral candles to the shop’s own line of white dinnerware. The space, boasting an elegant design by architect Michael Bodziner (of the renowned firm Gensler), also offers a handpicked selection of vintage hotel tabletop pieces and silverware as well as a collection of linen napkins in 21 delectable colors. “To create Hudson Grace, we looked to our own homes, our lifestyles, what we use to entertain,” says Totah. “We sell items that make a house a home.” L Written by Caroline Biggs • Photography by Matthew Millman 48 Lonny
