Meet the Team

  • John Tavener

    Interior Designer

    A creative extrovert with an insatiable curiosity about the spaces people live in, John Tavener was always destined for a career creating beautiful interiors.

    Having worked at the James Said galleries in Perth and Sydney, he is now bringing his designer eye and passion to the flagship Melbourne store.

    While he has a Degree in Creative Industries majoring in Interior and Special Design, its John’s ability to read the unspoken signals from his clients and immediately interpret their design vision that make him extraordinary.

    Combining sleek, contemporary furnishings from the extensive James Said with interesting statement pieces or a hint of bold colour, his interiors are stunning and distinctive.

    Like his signature design style, John is all about personality, joy and a splash of glamour.

  • Maddison Lee Stott

A lighting specialist, Maddison uses the transformative properties of illumination to take stylish interior spaces to a whole new level.
