Featured Designer: Frank Roop

Frank Roop's subtle use of color and worldly mix of furnishings in his interiors is what draws me to these spaces. Roop designs much of the furniture he uses, as well as the draperies and lampshades and he uses local artisans to do it. Roop explains, “For me, it’s not about going to design center showrooms. I’d rather support local craftsmen. I think I am one of the few designers that stick to that principle of design.” If Roop hasn’t designed it, chances are the piece is vintage or antique. All of his interiors evoke a sense of refined glamour and balance and are simply gorgeous! Take a look!
