Master of Plaster: Stephen Antonson

Stephen Antonson is the "Master of Plaster". The designer furniture, lighting and decorative accessories are available to the trade only through Dessin Fournir. Interior Designer Michael Smith, is currently redecorating portions of the White House recently and Smith commissioned a custom piece by Antonson for the White House. Smith and Antonson took an antique Queen Anne table and covered it in plaster. Talk about a modern update for an iconic piece!

I have had the pleasure of working with Stephen the past few months designing a massive custom designed chandelier, lanterns, a mirror, and side table all for a client's vacation home. He is a true artist and visionary and I covet all of his pieces! Once the house it complete, I will do a follow up post on the entire process including my sketches and images of his prototypes, as well as the final installation. If I play my cards right I hope to score an invitation to his studio so I can mess up my manicure and play in some plaster myself. Stay tuned!

Here are images of items from his designer line at Dessin Fournir

You are in LUCK! 
He just launched a limited edition line at West Elm...

All of his West Elm pieces are inexpensive investment pieces for all of you newlyweds furnishing your first home. His limited edition collection will only increase in value over time.
