TINO ZERVUDACHI Interior designer At 18 years old, Tino Zervudachi was working as an assistant to the photographer Derry Moore on a shoot when he met David Mlinaric, who offered him a job on the spot.

Now The Gainsborough Silk Weaving Company, which is responsible for the damask-hung walls in historic houses across the country, has reproduced sections of the interiors and furniture from this treasure trove on fine silks, cottons, linens and damasks.
