The San Francisco Decorator Showcase is widely considered to be the West Coast’s premier design showhouse event, renowned for featuring the work of the region’s top interior and landscape designers. All the funds raised through the Decorator Showcase go directly to support the San Francisco University High School (UHS) Financial Aid Program. The success of this important fundraiser depends upon the generous support of our sponsors, the school’s trustees, parents, faculty, alumni, students, friends, the participation of hundreds of accomplished designers, and the patronage of thousands of Showcase visitors each year.

The story of the San Francisco Decorator Showcase began in 1977, when Nan Rosenblatt, a former San Francisco University High School parent and an accomplished interior designer, and Philip Fernandez, the first president of the school’s Parents Association, conceived the first Showcase to raise funds for University’s financial aid program. In its first year, the Showcase netted $26,000; in 2012, it raised over $546,000.
Showcase has taken place at some of the most prestigious addresses in some of the most breathtaking neighborhoods of San Francisco.
