A lover of all things old, John has developed a line of furniture for LA-based eco-furniture maker Cisco Brothers that’s largely inspired by antique European designs. He has three shops in New York, all on the same block in the East Village: one that showcases his decoupage and global finds; another devoted to textiles, furniture, and art; and a third filled with his Cisco Brothers collection. John also has a summertime shop in Provincetown, Massachusetts.
