Stefan hasn't officially adopted a style because he says that implies something 'static.'
Like the lifestyle/branding/interior design firm-- the Apartment — he owns with his wife, Stefan thrives on the freedom to change and take on as many challenges as he can handle...
Having migrated from France for graduate school, they kept bringing back cool things from France after vacations. Soon they realized they had a knack for interior design, launched a store to sell some of the stuff they found, and moved downtown to locate near their new business.
Since this home came together, Stefan's taste has changed dramatically. The home they live in now is a place for all of Stefan's small object collections because when he moved in, he believed that living meant collecting. Now, after transforming a YMCA basketball court into a mecca of minimalism, Stefan prefers what is left after all the collecting stops and is removed from one's home. Although his approach to design has changed significantly, he loves this home and considers it his family's 'collective history.'
Favorite element: that the front of the loft is open but divided into 4 distinct sections
