Tom Keane's advice on collecting
This interview takes place in the house of world renowned interior designer John Stefanidis, in the village of Chora on the island of Patmos. The house has a beautiful garden, and is just below the monastery. John Stefanidis was born into a Greek family in Alexandria, Egypt, and was baptised by the Bishop of Babylon. He was raised in Cairo and moved to Oxford at the age of 17.
I ask John: Are you working in Patmos?
Yes, I did a house for Nicholas Negroponte, and another house for an American family that live in Santa Barbara.
My uncle, a member of the Royal Academy
of Arts, encouraged me from an early age to be
fascinated in art, antiques and design
My love of antiques is about history,
makers and their evolution over the ages.
I hope you will enjoy exploring our website.
