About Us

Ancient Modern Finishes is a decorative faux artistry company, and is operated by Florian Spahiu. We offer complete specialist decorative services. Ancient Modern Finishes works with architects and interior designers, as well as home owners. We are experts at developing ideas and original concepts for the decoration of interiors — including faux finishes and decorative art for walls, furniture, cabinetry and architectural ornaments.
Ancient Modern Finishes is located in Bonita Springs, in southwest Florida. We began business in the United States in 2000. We have offered our artistic skills for over twenty-five years — in Albania, Greece, Italy and Florida.
Ancient Modern Finishes usually has a firm grasp on the style designers and architects wish to achieve. That is not always the case with homeowners. They also want to enhance the look of their homes, but may need advice on how to implement their ideas. We create solutions that fit within the overall decoration scheme. We offer interior design and color consulting services, and we also provide our services to commercial businesses and professional offices. We accept jobs nationwide.
About Florian
© 2017 Ancient Modern Finishes

Florian Spahiu is the owner and decorative faux artistry of Ancient Modern Finishes, Inc. He has been trained in Italy, Greece and the US, and has been working in decorative faux painting for over twenty-four years.

Florian began his career as a decorative painter in 1985. He soon discovered that faux finishes offered a better outlet for his creative skills. His initial dream was realizeded during a house restoration, with an old byzantic-looking style, in Albania. His aspiration to open his own faux painting business continued to grow.

In 1990, Florian moved to Athens, Greece. Pursuing his knowledge about art, he attended a School of Art taught by Farinola, an Italian artist. For a decade, Florian worked in Greece – where he not only applied his knowledge about Faux Finishing, but had the opportunity to extend his talent. Soon he was familiar with Italian Plaster techniques, after studying several private courses in Italy.

In 2000, Florian and his family moved to Boca Raton, Florida. Soon he mastered his expertise and understanding of Italian Plaster, by following Texston company courses. He received certifications in Faux Effects, European Marbling, and Wood Graining courses taught by Master Mike McNeil.

Florian has been working full time in the decorative arts since moving to Naples, Florida. He applies his fine art background to faux finishes and plaster, to create custom works of art for his prestigious clients. His work has been profiled in various showcase homes.

Testimonials

“Upon a recommendation, we contacted Florian, met him, liked him and hired him. We gave him a key and took a vacation while he faux painted our entire house – walls, ceiling, crown moldings, doors, baseboards, and all the trim. The work was excellent, and the house was left immaculately clean. In addition to his excellent work, it was extremely pleasant to deal with a person who showed up on time for his appointments, and met every one of his committments without delay. We are very pleased to be able to recommend Florian as a trustworthy professional who takes pride in his work.”

Venetian Plasters
Venetian Plasters (also known as European Plasters) are available in a variety of colors and sheen. They can be tinted with most colors, and can also incorporate metallic tints. Cool to the touch, they are hand-applied, and honed to a smooth texture. Because they are natural products, these elements will bond over time, and harden to their original stone/texture state. Venetian Plasters actually improve in appearance over time. Venetian Plasters are perfect for powder rooms, baths, and as an accent in wall pockets and art niches.
Faux Finishes
When it comes to faux finishing, the sky really is the limit. Ancient Modern Finishes takes pride in customizing your finish, to create a truly unique look. We give consideration to every design element when planning your space, and incorporate your overall concept into something spectacular. Don't forget to refinish your cabinets — it's less expensive than buying new ones, and it gives your kitchen a fresh look. From traditional to contemporary, elegant to eccentric, there is likely a custom finish that Florian Spahiu can create for your project.
