Athena Calderone

Interior Designer and Blogger

Blogger and designer Athena Calderone is a much-followed — and frequently photographed — tastemaker in design, fashion and food circles. Founder of the popular lifestyle site Eye Swoon, Calderone is also a partner at Rawlins Calderone Design, an interiors firm she started in 2012 with John Rawlins, the former director of store design at Bergdorf Goodman. A Parsons School of Design alum, Calderone excels at the art of juxtaposition, often pulling natural elements into industrial spaces. Splitting time between her contemporary DUMBO dwelling in Brooklyn and her mid-century modern Amagansett getaway in the Hamptons — a collaboration with Bates Masi Architects — the self-proclaimed "visual creature” shares a swoon-worthy selection of her favorite items from 1stdibs.
