At Jute, we create warm, welcoming, unique spaces.

Prioritizing natural materials and artisanal techniques we craft homes with clean air quality without sacrificing aesthetics. Always mindful of environmental impact, we believe in constructing purposeful spaces made to last a lifetime. Our design methods involve maximizing natural light, incorporating natural materials and layering one-of-a-kind pieces to create charming environments grounded in nature.

Led by Alison Davin, known for handcrafted details and an artisanal approach, our San Francisco– and Santa Monica–based team shares a love for design-build projects that allow light, space, and natural elements to flow with your home’s daily life. With backgrounds in art, antiques, and architecture, our visionary yet pragmatic designers lend a personal touch to every project.

In projects ranging from Los Angeles city family homes to Sonoma County rural escapes and Santa Barbara seaside villas, we aim for an approachable feel, fusing the character and sustainability of antique furnishings with the understanding of how people inhabit a space. With a holistic design process for both new construction and renovation, our services include all phases of execution from drafting to installation. Every aspect is carefully considered to create a healthy atmosphere that’s breathable, comfortable, and functional. The result: customized, harmonious spaces tailored to fit your lifestyle and optimized for your well-being.

Jute has been featured in national and international publications including Elle Decoration, Architectural Digest, and Luxe. A bespoke product line was launched in 2020 and a book on creating natural homes is being published in 2024.

Based in San Francisco, CA, Ali Davin’s firm, Jute, designs interiors flooded by light, warmed by natural elements, and brimming with one-of-a-kind pieces.
