If you have followed Steven and Chris through their hit television shows, you know their approach to design is more about helping you find your personal style and less about imposing their own personal tastes. Experienced and charismatic designers, Steven Sabados and Chris Hyndman provide insight into design and help people in pursuit of beautiful living spaces.
Steven and Chris, both born in Canada, joined forces in 1992 to form the design company The Sabados Group. They soon branched out to combine entertainment and design through do-it-yourself appearances on a variety of home decorating shows. Shortly thereafter, they received a call to audition for HGTV’s Designer Guys. Together, the calm and suave Steven and the dynamic and quick-witted Chris sealed the deal and ultimately changed the course of their lives forever.
Since their smash hit debut of Designer Guys (2001), Steven and Chris launched a second successful interior design program, Design Rivals (2003), plus the highly rated personal make-over program So Chic with Steven and Chris (2005). The pair became household names, even catching the attention of Oprah Winfrey, who featured their work on her show. The duo has taken the world by storm, with their programs airing internationally in more than 80 countries.
Steven and Chris penned Designer Guys: Finding Your Personal Style (2003), a best-selling how-to book, encouraging people to build on their sense of self in order to create a home that reflects individual decor.
Spring 2007 marked the launch of Steven’s and Chris’ own line of furniture, textiles, decorative accessories and area rugs. Beautifully crafted, the products launched to rave reviews across Canada and the United States.
In January 2008, Steven and Chris went national with their own Canadian talk show Steven and Chris, on CBC. They entertain Canadian audiences with tips and trends on home décor, health and beauty, food and entertaining, and much more. The show is a smash hit, creating an even greater relationship between them and audiences across the country. The show has recently been syndicated in the US market.
Stay tuned for the next stage of this dynamic duo’s career!
