Juan Pablo Molyneux
Signature: “My interiors have a neoclassical basis, but with a contemporary relation. Even when I do contemporary environments, they are rich in texture and material, and they have some historic foundation.” Molyneux has an incredible eye for grand details, often mixing exquisite boiserie, marquetry work, intarsia, and other luxurious elements into his interiors. He also has a wonderful sense of formality and old-world decorum where it is called for.
