California Homes Magazine visits San Francisco's South of Market Antiques Dealers in the Fall 2016 Issue 

"Designer Suzanne Tucker of Tucker & Marks mixes antiques into each of her projects. 'For me, antiques give a room soul. There do not have to be many antiques and they do not all need to be the finest examples. But the rich patina of old wood, painted finishes or burnished metals gives a lovely juxtaposition to what is new and can make a room more interesting, balanced and unique.' she commented. When Tucker and her design colleagues source antiques in San Francisco they visit the knowledgeable dealers of the SOMA design district. [..]  "Eric Petsinger of Epoca mingles 20th century furniture and accessories with more traditional pieces. The Pittsburgh native advises clients, “Mix it up! Go ahead, put that shapely French rococo armchair next to a sleek John Widdicomb sofa, and see how they bring out each other’s beauty.”
