John McClain is a residential interior designer who has turned his lifetime passion for transforming houses into beautiful homes into an opportunity to do the same for others. As a young man, John’s interest in creating beautiful spaces was sparked by his family’s talent in fine home building. Soon, John began remodeling and redesigning home after home and combined a trade taught by his family with his natural aesthetic ability. John enrolled in the interior design program at Seminole State College and began his interior design career in Orlando, Florida. After appearing on HGTV in 2010, John’s personality and design perspective were visible to a larger audience, and he was soon designing homes all across the country. Soon thereafter, John joined a prestigious interior design firm/furniture designer in Los Angeles. While working in LA, John gained an appreciation for the sumptuous west coast design style while collaborating on designs for many LA homes-including several celebrity clients. Here, John also fueled his passion for custom furniture design and returned to Florida in 2013 with his eponymous design firm John McClain Design. John’s design style is an eclectic mix of traditional elements fused with clean lines and touches of glamour. A successful project involves combining the client’s needs and wishes with his natural instinct. Moreover, John’s belief that all environments can be both beautiful and attainable allows anyone to seek and find their perfect surroundings.
Most recently, the team at John McClain Design launched a home furnishings line, Gilded Home by John McClain, which embodies the discerning style and quality craftsmanship that John has woven into all of his interior design projects. John has personally designed each and every item in the Gilded Home collection which includes bespoke upholstery, casegoods, lighting, and accessories. Aesthetically, Gilded Home marries the luxe sophistication of Hollywood Regency with the simplicity of mid-century modern design elements-all fused with unique elegance. Gilded Home is at once modern and classic blended together in extraordinarily-made home goods.
