If we are talking about unconventional juxtapositions of modern and antique, stark and ornate, bold and subtle we can point out the interior designer Steven Volpe. He worked in San Francisco and Paris and for several designers including Anthony Hail and Eleanor Ford.

In his early twenties, Steven moved to Paris and took advantage of opportunities to study design firsthand, immersing himself in European techniques, history and theory.
After several years in Paris, Steven returned to San Francisco to open his own firm as well as an art and design gallery, Hedge. From his historical Jackson Square office, Steven and his staff now orchestrate design projects around the world.

LONDON TOWNHOUSE interior design project by Steven Volpe
“You can’t be a modern painter if you haven’t been classically trained, so you know what rules you’re breaking, it’s the same with decoration. I learned what was appropriate and proper, and now I, too, can break those rules. I mesh art and decor—it is where I want to be in my 21st century.” Steven Volpe
