FR Review:
Clients recommend D’Aquino Monaco with warmth and joy. Combining their expertise, interior designer Carl D’Aquino and architect Francine Monaco established their progressive, stylish firm in 1998. Clients appreciate that the pair make a personal investment in each project–D’Aquino and Monaco are said to combine boutique service with large-scale capabilities, bringing charm and character to significant homes and apartments. Clients also mention their unusually calm and kind nature. The firm is known for its remarkably varied styles as well as its use of resonant color.

D’Aquino Monaco’s recent projects include large homes built from the ground up, chic downtown lofts and Upper East Side apartments; clients include a wide range of professionals–artists, fashion designers, actors, and Wall Streeters. Their client roster also includes a number of hospitality and commercial corporations, as well as real estate developers. Adding to its commercial portfolio D’Aquino Monaco recently designed the new global offices for La Prairie in New York City. At The Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman, the firm completed a redesign of over 350 rooms and suites and is currently redesigning its award-winning Silver Rain Spa.

Generally, a standard up-front design fee is charged and products are acquired at a reasonable percentage over net. Oversight fees are in the typical range, and the firm is quite sensitive to budgetary constraints, often shopping outside normally traveled paths and offering creative alternatives. D’Aquino Monaco will also do consultations by the hour. Francine and Carl were individually inducted into the Interior Design Hall of Fame, and have been published in all national and international publications including Architectural Digest, Elle De´cor and The New York Times. The firm has received top design awards from New York Spaces, The Robb Report, and House Beautiful. The partners have many repeat customers who think the world of the firm. ASID

Representative Client Comments:
“Francine and Carl will go the extra mile for their clients–we undertook an exhaustive auction hunt together for the perfect antiques for our house.” “They were instrumental in advising me on the purchase of my new apartment.” “They are not constricted by the common view of coherency.” “Carl and Francine are very cost-conscious, offering several alternatives.” “I did not want a traditional, refined apartment, but a fresh breeze. They got it.” “We were amazed at how they created a room of multiple functions, with folding furniture that looked just fabulous.” “All the firm’s interiors make a thematic personal statement, and are tied together with comfortable upholstery.” “Heavily conceptual designs that look very natural.” “Carl and Francine have brought expression and joy to all six of our projects. We are dedicated clients.”
