Brand Spotlight | John Derian
21 Jul 2023
Since 1989, John and a small studio of artisans in New York City have been creating glass plates, trays, bowls, and other decorative home items using his vast and ever-expanding collection of 18th and 19th century prints.
Crafted by hand with significant care, they layer cut paper images on a surface beneath glass, yielding eye-catching dimension and care thanks to the art of découpage.
Anna Wintour, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue, has publicly credited John with singlehandedly resurrecting this lost art, and making it highly relevant to interior design today—a feat for any artist, let alone one who'd never been formally trained.
Enamored by antiques, paper, and elements of design, John has always thrived in collaboration with others. Be they historical samples that offer inspiration, or other artists and brands collected from around the world, his work bears a fingerprint one would be hard pressed to miss.
John Derian Co., his work, and homes have been featured in Vogue, The New York Times, The World of Interiors, Elle Décor, Vanity Fair, Bon Appétit, New York Magazine, GQ, Details, W, Air France Madame, German AD and many more.
“Trust your instincts and pay attention to what your reactions are. If there's something you love and you have a purpose for it, put those two together."
