The designer, in his own words.
Ken Fulk is a designer of experiences big and small. He is renowned for his layered interiors and over-the-top parties.
Self-taught and working exclusively by referral, San Francisco–based Fulk has developed a business out of making the impossible a reality. Fulk has become the curator of his clients' lifestyle, not only designing their homes down to the custom stationery, but also their wardrobes, weddings, dinner parties and family vacations.
His firm, Ken Fulk Inc, is a creative think tank based out of four-story 1920's building affectionately called "The Magic Factory." With a staff of 49, Fulk employs interior designers, event planners, architects and graphic designers to help bring his ideas to life. In addition to his residential projects, Fulk takes a multi-disciplinary approach for hospitality clients including The Major Food Group – New York's hottest restaurant consortium – as well as acclaimed social club The Battery SF and the forthcoming overhaul of San Francisco's historic Mark Hopkins Hotel.
Fulk imbues every project with wit and effortless elegance, whether it’s a Pacific Heights mansion or a museum fundraiser. Some of his most talked-about events have included a Heaven and Hell–themed party hosted at his studio for Jean Paul Gaultier featuring a surprise performance by Dita Von Teese, a notorious wedding in the redwoods for tech titan Sean Parker, and closing off a city block for a tented Stevie Nicks benefit concert for 400 costumed Halloween guests.
Featured in such publications as The New York Times, Vanity Fair, Architectural Digest, Elle Décor and The Wall Street Journal, the Virginia-born Fulk is happiest entertaining at his vacation home in Provincetown, MA or watching his three Golden Retrievers bound around the pool at his ranch in Napa Valley.
