John Saladino

John Saladino was born in Missouri and graduated from Notre Dame and the Yale School of Art and Architecture. He opened his own design practice, Saladino Group, Inc. in 1972. In 1986, John Saladino created his own furniture line with designs that validate his philosophy of “mixing old with new.”  His furniture, which is based on simple geometric forms, is intended to appeal to both the traditionalist as well as the modernist.  Saladino has written two books, Style by Saladino, which he reveals his inspiration behind his design, and Villa, which focuses on the stone ruin in Southern California that Saladino strenuously rebuilt into his dream house. 

His use of the color pink in the room below was featured in the July / August 2011 issue of Veranda. This interior is one of our favorites - enjoy!
