"I love history, and there’s a real sense of tradition in my approach, but I also love using pieces that are great juxtapositions to each other – a modern Parsons table and Robsjohn Gibbings’ Klismos dining room chairs. Things just must be sculptural and stand in the now."
Geoffrey De Sousa
Geoffrey De Sousa doesn't just design homes, he curates them. Known for creating interiors that are cosmopolitan and warmly modern, he brings connoisseurship to each residence his firm designs. Over the past twenty years, De Sousa's projects have included residences for many of the Bay Area's leading entrepreneurs, CEOs and tastemakers and include a San Francisco home by Robert A.M. Stern, a Sonoma B&B and residences throughout the Bay Area, New York, Palm Springs and Boston. Whether a San Francisco Victorian or modern Palm Springs retreat, De Sousa's work embraces both the classic and cutting edge. "There's a real sense of tradition in my approach, but I also love to juxtapose pieces like a modern Parsons table and Robsjohn Gibbings' Klismos dining room chairs. Things just must be sculptural and stand in the now."
