2013 Best Interior Designer

Frank Roop

There are two schools of interior design: “shop and arrange,” or the completely custom approach. Those of us capable of selecting a sofa have little interest in the former and a profound respect for the latter, especially in the case of designer Frank Roop. His every surface, piece of furniture, and window treatment showcases an artist’s ingenuity with color, texture, and craftsmanship. In other words, Roop’s homes are entirely bespoke, and thus defy imitation.
