Design matters!

Led by San Francisco interior designer John K. Anderson, JKA Design creates classic environments as seen through a modernist’s eye. With more than 25 years experience in residential, commercial and hospitality design, John is known for his dynamic balance of contemporary, mid-century and traditional elements, developing urbane interiors that are fresh and enduring. Anderson founded his studio in 2005 after working with several of the Bay Area’s preeminent designers, including Steven Volpe and Orlando Diaz-Azcuy. His process is deeply rooted in realizing a shared vision. Both a skillful guide and collaborator, he produces rich yet livable spaces that truly embrace and express the lives and passions of each client.
