Alex Papachristidis was born and raised in New York City and attended Parsons School of Design. This interior designer mixes contemporary and traditional, creating an elegant and sometimes whimsical room.
Alex Papachristidis Interiors, launched in 1987. Known for elegance, sophistication and luxury, Alex Papachristidis has decorated Manhattan apartments and beach houses in Cape Cod with his signature layers of textures, colours and patterns, and once even added embroidered walls to an 18-century English country house.
New Yorker Alex Papachristidis cites touring the world’s most beautiful homes in his early years as his education. “Growing up, I traveled widely and saw many beautiful homes in Europe and America, which helped cultivate my eye,” the designer explains.
In general, the spaces Papachristidis works with aren’t as rich in architectural details (such as cornicing, floor-to-ceiling windows or boiserie) as many of the others on this list yet he shrewdly creates that sensibility – a skill which endears him to a modern-day audience.
On Elle Decor’s A-List, Alex Papachristidis’ work can be described as a dynamic fusion of modern and eclectic with luxurious and traditional.
Their featured project is one of European Couture, and was also featured on the cover of his 2012 book, The Age of Elegance: Interiors by Alex Papachristidis. It is the perfect intermingling of stripes and scallops, gilded frames and coffee tables, crown moulding and zebra print . . .
It would take several pages to credit the work of Papachristidis which includes pieces by numerous publications and an enormous client list around the world.
