Summer Fashions & Interior Passions

Summer Fashions & Interior Passions

The sun is beginning to shine and summer fashion trends are coming in hot! The classic denim shorts and white tees are forever and always in style, but this season every it girl (and boy!) will be seen accessorizing with a chic, woven, straw-look handbag. If you know me then you know I love a […]

New Beginnings

Yesterday was my first day as a remote Modern Metal employee and guess what? All is well! Only in the year 2019 does the transition from in-office working to working from home happen smoothly (and I couldn’t be more grateful!). With this move I have not only shifted physically, but my title has progressed as […]

Don’t trash it too soon!

We all love taking a pamphlet or some sort of take-away from our favorite local business, but have you ever thought about what goes into creating that soon to be recycled piece? Here at AJK Design Studio, we spend a lot of time creating these. We feel these marketing tools allow us leave behind a […]

Showcasing Birds Without Bees

If you are in the design world, then you may already know that San Francisco Decorator Showcase is currently up until May 27. Decorator Showcase began in 1977, and is a space for Bay Area interior designers to show off their skills and creativity all in one location. It takes place in a historic San […]

Team of three…soon to be!

Believe it or not, we are coming up on the year anniversary of me starting my job here at AJK Design Studio! In my personal and business life I have gone through many changes in the past 12 months, and coming up I will be relocating to Southern California. But….don’t cue the water-works just yet […]

Small but mighty team of two!

As a small business there are many tasks we choose to take on ourselves to keep the personal, boutique feel that makes us unique. We are close to perfecting the local small business tasks in a way that makes us more ready than ever to continue growing while staying unique to our charming Bay Area […]

Metallic Mayhem

Everyone loves gold, but what are your thoughts on silver? Metallics are a huge trend in the fashion world right now, and if you can’t already tell by the photo above, I am loving it! Whether you’re a fashionista and rocking a statement silver sequin skirt, or your taste is more minimal with a single […]

Spring Fever

With the warmer weather finally beginning to show up, all I want to do is have fun in the sun! My spring and summer bucket list is already filling up and I’m anxious to check things off of that list! I think I speak for everyone when I say that right around this time of […]

Go Giants! Go custom!

As bay area residents, much of our inspiration comes from the excitement around us. With baseball now in season and every local fan showing off their crisp San Francisco Giants gear, we’ve got Giant’s orange on our mind. So, what could be better than to print a sample of our pattern Suspension, in the exact […]

Meetings, Metal, and Munchies!

About once a week Annie and I venture into San Francisco to meet with design and architectural firms to present our product. These introductions give us the opportunity to charm local designers with our metal creations and show them their many uses, often which they never have previously considered! A lot happens behind the scenes […]
