400 Gate 5 Rd., Sausalito
A true mid-century American icon, Heath has been producing beautiful modern and minimal tableware (with a brief break) and tiles since 1948. In fact, it's part of the permanent collections in New York's MoMA—and graces many a table across the Los Angeles restaurant scape. The store, like the products, is modern and minimal, with wooden shelves, concrete floors and a lot of space to browse. Besides the Heath line, they've selected a handful of designers to showcase. There are two locations in the SF area (one in the Mission and the Ferry Building), but the factory store in Sausalito offers seconds (i.e., subtly imperfect plates and bowls) at big discounts.
