The S&C Story

S&C brand founders Steven Sabados and Chris Hyndman joined forces in 1992 and formed the design company, The Sabados Group.

After appearing on a variety of daytime shows, it wasn't long before the charming and creative Steven along with the dynamic and fun loving Chris were offered their own media showcase and together they pioneered the birth of "design television".

The smash hit "Designer Guys" debuted in 2001 followed by "Design Rivals" (2003) "So Chic with Steven and Chris" (2005) and the highly successful CBC national daily lifestyle show, Steven and Chris (2007-2015). Their highly popular programs continue to air in the United States and internationally in over 80 countries.

In 2007 Steven and Chris turned their passion for design into their own line of furniture, accessories, rugs, lighting and textiles; launching the S&C brand and receiving rave reviews across North America.

In the summer of 2015 the world sadly lost Christopher Hyndman and as a tribute to Chris' passion for design, S&C product development continues with an expanded design team under Steven's inspirational leadership.

Together with his team and industry partners Steven continues to uphold the S&C philosophy of "Timeless, Fresh & Fabulous” design.

Steven Sabados

Steven Sabados was born and raised in the Niagara area of Ontario, Canada. From an early age Steven pursued his passion for the arts, finding avenues of expression in painting, photography, architecture and fashion. After completing an education in Fine Art Steven moved to Toronto where he excelled as the in-store Creative Director for some of Canada’s most successful retail brands including Eaton’s and Roots.

In 1992 he met his partner Christopher Hyndman and together they formed an independent design firm, The Sabados Group. The powerful combination of Steven's design vision and Chris' dynamic energy allowed the couple to become HGTV’s top design team and to launch their own highly successful product brand, S&C.

With the heartbreaking loss of Christopher in 2015, Steven retreated from public life to mourn and assess his personal and public life. In 2016 he poured his creative energy into the relaunch of the S&C product line and considered his future media career.

Steven's life continues to be shaped by his passion for design, love of family and friends and dedication to his loving partner Christopher.

Chris Hyndman

Christopher Hyndman was born in Ottawa, Ontario and raised in the natural beauty of Newfoundland. Christopher saw beauty everywhere; the perfume of the sea air, the cut of a suit, the construction of a Louboutin heel and the harmony of a well designed room.

Chris met Steven in Toronto where they were making their way in the art and design world. In 1992 they established The Sabados Group and quickly rose to success in print and television media. Christopher's charm, curiosity, wicked wit and dazzling smile lit up rooms and elevated heavy hearts. Their CBC lifestyle show, Steven and Chris was incredibly successful and held the number one daytime slot year after year.

Sadly, Christopher passed away on August 3, 2015. As a tribute to his life and creative passion Steven has since rebuilt the S&C design team and relaunched the brand.

Christopher’s appreciation for beauty is never forgotten and continues to influence every S&C product design.
