Steven Shell London

Inspiration surrounds us—art, music, literature, architecture, design and nature—all have a unique voice, speaking to each of us in different ways. This belief sits at the heart of my philosophy of influence driven design. Whether it is the most intense blue of the sky on a crystal clear day or a mystical bird interpreted by a 1930’s textile designer, my influences are limitless. I stay open to the infinite possibilities so that I may share my take on them with you.
As a London-born antique dealer, I’ve traded antiques in Eastern Europe, America, Great Britain and Spain. I’ve travelled around the world finding curios for the past 35 years, getting to know all manners of the weird and wonderful. Fortunately, my passion for furniture was allowed to develop further, and for the last 23 of those years, I’ve been taking my inspirations and interpreting them into furniture designs for Steven Shell Furniture.
