About Peter Mavrides

Following his passion and eye for art, Haverford resident Peter Mavrides brings a touch of Parisian markets to the Main Line. What started as a way to decorate his own home, Peter has taken to purchasing and displaying European art, for himself and for clients. He teamed up with Spogue Kitchens & Bath in Wayne to display his finds, which hang throughout the showrooms.

Peter’s art collecting journey began on a trip to Lisbon and Paris. While wandering around France, he stopped at places of significance to expats like Gertrude Stein. “I just found the times of experimentation and expression fascinating,” he says.“These are the people that formed the 20th century, the culture.” He visited markets and sifted through hundreds of pieces, seeking ones he found special, shipping them home and having them framed. Peter has plans to continue searching for unique finds in other European markets to continue displaying on the Main Line.

Over 100 pieces of art hang throughout Spogue, adding another element to the immaculate showrooms. Works are integrated so that they feel as though they belong in home. Pieces range from French impressionist ­inspired pieces to colorful Picasso­esque works.
