Chris Papanayotou

/Design Consultant

Chris’s inspiration to the furniture industry came from his family, who manufactured high end design furniture including producing furniture for Paolo Designed by Paolo Gucci. They produced Bedroom, dining and wall systems made from the first quality solid oak and ash woods and medium density fiber board (mdf) with veneers such as Walnut, Birds eye and Burl. To compliment these exotic woods, stain finishes in Avant garde colors such as champagne, sea foam, sky blue and maroon were applied creating a modern contemporary look.

At the same time the family also had a leather company that sold raw cow hides to Tanneries worldwide and sold the finished tanned hides to some of America’s finest upholstery manufacturers. This allowed him to see the latest trends in colors that would soon hit the decorating and design markets. Chris unique experience in furniture and leathers allows him to see a client’s idea turn into a luxurious reality.
