John Stefanidis: A Designer's Eye


Published Date: Oct 2023

Written and Photographed by John Stefanidis and Susanna Moore


This long-awaited monograph brings together fifty years of work and demonstrates how the interior guru has drawn on a global range of influences for his designs as well as his furniture and fabric collections.

John Stefanidis established his design practice in Chelsea, London, in 1967, attracting a discerning international clientele with his carefully considered, vibrant, and beautiful transformation of homes worldwide.

If there is such a thing as a Stefanidis “look,” it combines an original use of vibrant color, an eclectic aesthetic, great sensitivity to proportions, and comfort matched with international flair. With interiors that are often distinguished by bespoke elements—bronze door pulls, oak shutters, an inlaid table, a pair of simple, oak-topped chests—Stefanidis’s creations often feature the handiwork of decorative painters and other craftspeople who marbleize woodwork and lay in floor mosaics. This lavishly illustrated survey—with images taken for the foremost shelter magazines and unpublished photographs from the designer’s archive—closely follows Stefanidis’s trajectory from his professional start in the late 1960s to his most recent, celebrated projects. Sifting through a vast personal archive, Stefanidis shares exclusive insights into his process, his own rules for decorating, and personal stories of his adventures and friendships with many of the leading lights of the day.
