Cool Hunting Video Presents: John Derian
We talk to the master of paper, glue and glass in this behind the scenes look at the finest découpage in NYC
We always strive to discover and document the most phenomenal people, places and things around the globe but there is something extra satisfying when we find a real gem in our own back yard of New York City. In our latest video we visited John Derian who has been making découpage housewares sinces 1989. Derian, whose production facility sits quietly tucked away on 2nd street in New York's East Village, collects 18th century imagery, which he lovingly transforms into beautiful découpage pieces.
