His original approach to design is simply breathtaking. Take, for example, the cocoon-like, cowhide-backed chairs; the copper-forged tree stump tables; the innovative kitchen designs; and his unique eye for art from all over the globe, each emanating impeccable taste. His goal at age 39 is to have traveled to 100 countries by age 40. With just six left, Ho is set to reach his goal, simultaneously immersing himself in international inspiration that will only enhance the talented designer’s creativity and appeal. Having been a jet-setter for many years now, Ho would be, one might assume of a man as well traveled and connected as he is, arrogant. Much to our surprise, Jiun Ho is one of the nicest, most humble designers we’ve had the pleasure to meet. He probably loves San Francisco more than you do. You may never afford the one-of-a-kind pieces of Jiun Ho, but that doesn’t mean you can’t admire immense talent, especially from a man so gracious.
