Early in his career, Steven Volpe developed a love for unconventional juxtapositions – modern and antique, stark and ornate, bold and subtle – that can be seen in his work today on both large and small scales.
Through his early work in San Francisco and Paris, Volpe developed a finely-tuned eye, having worked for several accomplished designers including Anthony Hail and Eleanor Ford.
After moving to Paris in his early twenties, he took advantage of opportunities to study design firsthand, immersing himself in European techniques, history and theory.
After several years in Paris, Volpe returned to San Francisco to open his own firm as well as an art and design gallery, Hedge. From his historical Jackson Square office, Steven and his staff now orchestrate design projects around the world.
