Become a Tastemaker
Alexis Traina and Ronda Carman
When design editor Ronda Carman came to San Francisco recently she was honored at a cocktail party hosted by Alison Pincus and Susan Feldman co-founders of One Kings Lane, with designer Scot Meacham Wood and Alexis Traina.
As founder and editor of All The Best (allthebestblog.com), which has an international following of designers and design enthusiasts, Ronda is a woman who could easily be labelled a “tastemaker.” Her site is a daily source of inspiration and information, whether she’s spotlighting a dramatic renovation, recommending a new book, or featuring an interesting interior designer.

Each Saturday the Tastemaker Tag Sale will feature items personally selected by leading designers such as Kendall Wilkinson, Ken Fulk, and Nathan Turner, all available at a discounted price. Alexis Traina was excited that so many of the designers involved with One Kings Lane are based in the Bay Area, pointing out that it’s only natural since so many trends originate here.

Designer Scot Meacham Wood, a co-host of the event (held at the beautiful cooperative located at 2006 Washington Street, which Malin Giddings has on the market for $8,500,000,) said that One Kings Lane “has been an invaluable source for great sale prices on top-of-the-line products since it began last year.” No doubt he’ll be logging in every Saturday to capture those special tag sale items.

Since the only way he could endear himself to the dogs was by playing with them and giving them treats, in one scene Jackie still had the scent of food on his hand so the dog nipped it, drawing blood.
