JP Molyneux is an internationally acclaimed interior designer. A committed classicist, he creates spirited interiors that are rooted in history without being historical recreations. His work is bold, eclectic, witty…and unmistakably his own.
Chilean-born Juan Pablo Molyneux’s rooms carry on the spirit of grand decorators such as Georges Geffroy, whose luxe interiors for midcentury elites fused neoclassical elegance with monumental swagger.
For high-flying clients from Argentina to Qatar, Molyneux fashions perfectionistic mountain lodges and lakeside châteaus that showcase the work of traditional gilders, weavers, woodcarvers, and other expert craftspeople.
Custom-made furniture, museum-quality antiques, and paintings both classic and cutting-edge round out the refined package, along with rare objets d’art are some of Molyneux signature moves.
The United States and France are two countries close to Molyneux’s heart, and he maintains offices in both of them. He established the New York studio in the early 1980’s and the one in Paris in the late 1990’s.
He has received many awards, among them the Decoration of the Chevalier des Arts et Lettres, which he was given in 2004 by the French Minister of Culture in acknowledgment of having helped to spread French culture through his design work and his support of artisans.
A citizen of the world, Molyneux brings to each project he takes on a wide-ranging curiosity about all matters aesthetic. His interiors reflect a strong sense of place. They are the product of a continuing conversation with the client.
I try to distill that which is expected and turn it into something unexpected,” Molyneux says. “I make interiors people want to belong to—forever.”
