About This Location
Samuel Scheuer Linens
After fleeing Europe in the 1930’s, dry goods merchants Samuel and Rosel Scheuer settled in San Francisco, where they soon began calling on the city’s well-heeled residents with samples of tablecloths, towels, and sheets. Working tirelessly from their small Nob Hill flat, Samuel and Rosel eventually transformed “Scheuer Linens” into a thriving multi-generational business. Since 1935, Samuel Scheuer has been San Francisco’s quintessential resource for exquisite linens.
Located near iconic Union Square and just steps away from its original store front, Samuel Scheuer continues to offer the world’s finest and most sought-after names in bedding and bath linens, distinctive goods, and lavish gifts. As a true San Francisco “institution,” our store is known for its knowledgeable tenured team—providing warm and personalized design assistance for projects large and small.

With knowledge to answer any bedding question, Louis's repertoire also includes a vast amount of old Hollywood cinema—a favorite pastime to entertain friends and family. Louis loves Le Jacquard Francais’ beautiful patterns and dramatic color combinations, the perfect touch of whimsy.

Before her chapter with Samuel Scheuer began, Vichhana worked at Pierre Deux as an in-store design consultant and an assistant manager to Bridal Consultant at Laura Ashley.

She is in love with Celso de Lemos bed linens, especially their cashmere blankets and throws.

Kyle joined the Samuel Scheuer family in November of 2017 after spending over fifteen years in the luxury clothing and home business.

Shipping Manager, since 2012
Dabbling in almost every job imaginable, Ben is a jack-of-all-trades. He landed at Samuel Scheuer in 2012 and loves it. His passions are the ocean, nature, thrift stores, great food, celebrating, relaxing, camping, building, fixing things, DIY projects, music, wine, sports, and treasure hunting for valuable art. He also shoots a pretty mean game of pool. Like any true Renaissance man, his favorite bedding is everything Legna.
Bookkeeper, since 2009
