Designer Crush: John Saladino

John Saladino is one of the world's most distinguished architects and interior designers and has been designing breathtaking spaces for over 35 years.  His philosophy is to mix old with new and manages to appeal to traditionalists and modernists alike.   I am personally inspired by his natural aesthetic and his obvious attention to architectural detail.

John Saladino went to the Yale School of Art and Architecture and worked in Rome with architect, Piero Sartogo before returning to New York to open his own design practice. Saladino Group, Inc., founded in 1972, has grown into a full service architectural and interior design organization with a staff of 30.

In 1986, John Saladino started his own furniture company with no less than sixty new designs. These designs continue his philosophy of mixing "old with new" and demonstrate his full maturity as an artist and a master of scale. There is a genuine love of history that permeates all of Mr. Saladino's designs. The humanism from his long tradition endorses the human scale and comfort.

Mr. Saladino, who is frequently referred to as the "designer's designer," has won numerous Interior Design and Furniture awards. I love the neutral colors and timeless materials, the clean lines and simplicity in his spaces.
