Masterful Mix: A Residence Designed by Stephen Sills for Barbara Cirkva and John Schumacher

Working with legendary interior designer Stephen Sills, tastemakers Barbara Cirkva and John Schumacher furnished their elegant, 1920s stone country residence with a carefully honed amalgam of Continental antiques and 20th century design. The result is a masterful mix of gutsy and unique objects and furniture, a lesson in restrained sophistication. Cirkva worked for the famed company Chanel as US Division President for fashion and precious jewelry; her husband John was an executive at I.Magnin, Bonwit Teller, Valentino and other luxury brands. Together they also own Fleur, a garden antiques furniture company. Stair is proud to offer this collection which reflects an extraordinary combination of talents, a lofty perception of connoisseurship and an imaginative sense of style.
