John Stefanidis

I find this man to be  one of romance.
and I think
he has a rich and refined soul .


This surprises even me.
This one has me with the art work!!!!
This room is unpredictable.
Look at the carpet, the chairs, and the art.

I love it.


To the right of this image
he has used ONYX behind the shelving/bar.
I love ONYX.

He intrigues me.
He recently posted a touching poem on his blog.
It sucked me in ….
And I instantly became more interested in john stefanidis
It was truly a hook in my heart. I will forever be curious about him.

Here is the  POEM that he posted;

Steve Smith – Not waving But Drowning

Nobody heard him,the dead man
But still he lay moaning;
I was much further out than you thought
And not waving but drowning.

Poor chap, he always loved larking
And now he is dead.
It must have been too cold for him his heart gave way,
They said. 
oh, no no no, it was cold always
{still the dead one lay moaning}
I was much too far out all my life
And not waving but drowning.

What are you thoughts?
Do you like his work?

***Mr Stefanidis has several books out.
i can't wait to get my hands on them.

  1. John is truly an artist; he has an astounding sense of color! I adore the wallpaper and mirror in the first image, very romantic.

  2. Renee-
    I think we were separated at birth! I have been OBSESSED with his work since I first saw it. I have a couple of posts in the archive if you want to see more!
    I will have to head over and see if I can find more to obsess over! The art he uses is fantastic. I dream!
    Happy Saturday.

  3. I have a friend who has a chair he designed, very elegant and smart. He's a man who can do anything, formal and utter informality, and I very much admire his collaborations with Arabella Lennox Boyd.

  4. Paul Gervais de Bédée ,

    have i seen your artwork in miami @ art basil?
    i will check out his collaborations with Arabella Lennox Boyd.

    thank you for the comment!

    xx have a lovely weekend

  5. The poem was painfully poignant.
    Loved the checked fabric and the red room.



Thanks for participating!!

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.

Private Paradise
