Stephan Jones is the owner and principal of Stephan Jones Interiors. He opened the firm in 2007 following many years with Gregga Jordan Smieszny under the mentorship of Bruce Gregga and Alex Jordan.
He has had a lifelong interest in architecture and design. After completing a liberal arts education with a degree in history from The American University, he pursued further education in painting, graphic design and interiors at Drake University and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Moving to Chicago in the early 90's, he began working for The Environments Group, a large contract interiors firm, before moving on to work for the Jack Lenor Larson showroom. From these experiences he chose to become more intimately involved with the design process as a project manager, first with Richar Interiors and ultimately with Bruce Gregga Interiors.
Stephan draws inspiration from the melding of classical design elements with contemporary resources. The principle guiding his work is the interweaving of materials and styles which allows him to create bold and honest living spaces. He has worked on a number of projects throughout the country and draws great satisfaction out of the collaborative process between the client, designer, and contractors.
