FR Review:
Melding classicism with unique architectural elements, Frank Ponterio Interior Design receives rave reviews from loyal clients who proclaim this company is “the best in the business.” Known for using highly textural materials such as natural fibers, iron and exotic skins like chagrin and vellum; Frank Ponterio effortlessly conveys a luxurious elegance in all of his projects.

Ponterio holds a degree from the Harrington Institute of Interior Design and opened his own business in 1994. The business has a staff of ten, and Ponterio is deeply involved in every project. We’re told he is tireless in his search for special antiques and decorative objects for clients and travels to five or six countries in a year to procure these items. The firm charges a design retainer, which is billed hourly, and an average markup over net.

Representative Client Comments:
"We have worked with Frank Ponterio for several years. We own an 80-year-old David Adler house, originally decorated by his sister, Frances Elkins. Frank has skillfully updated our house, whilst incorporating what remained of Elkins’ decor, to create a stylish, yet comfortable retreat for our large family. He has created designs for both the interior and exterior living spaces. Frank has great sensitivity to our requirements and his designs are always tasteful and elegant, yet practical for our needs. We value his expertise immensely and enjoy working with him and his team very much." We have worked with Frank Ponterio Interior Design for several years, dating back to 2005. Our projects have ranged from individual pieces of furniture to fill a niche, to complete room re-dos. In every aspect, Frank Ponterio Interior Design has been creative, professional, efficient, and flexible. We could not recommend them more highly. We look forward to many future projects with Frank Ponterio Interior Design, and are proud to recommend them to our friends." "I have had the pleasure of working with Frank and his fine team of professionals for many years. His drive to create truly unique design that is also timeless is his trademark. A few words to describe Frank; creative, relentless, focused, value oriented, attention to detail and most important fun! I am very proud to work side by side with someone I am convinced is the 'Best of the Best.'" "To say that Frank Ponterio is “the best in the business” only tells part of the story on this unique man. Working with Frank, as I have for many years, you realize how completely dedicated he is to each project and how genuinely he cares about his clients. He tirelessly follows through on his commitments and never forgets one single detail." "It is with pleasure that I highly recommend Frank Ponterio Interior Design. Frank assisted me throughout a complete home renovation that took approximately 2.5 years. Frank's professionalism, organization, attention to budgets and details, as well as his creativity, patience and humor, made him a joy to work with." "Frank and his team have provided exemplary service to Northmoor Country Club over the past year or so. The recent renovation projects that he managed for us (our Entry foyer and Men’s Locker Room) have resulted in unanimous positive feedback from our membership." "Frank has provided great expertise and direction in the traditional areas of interior design; finish selections, fabrics and furnishings. But perhaps more importantly, he and his company have provided great value to Northmoor by being a resource for contractors and other vendors. As well as presenting options that facilitate good decision-making, resolving on-site issues as they arose during renovations, and patiently working through with our leadership team to facilitate consensus." "I can speak for our entire Renovation committee in saying that we all look forward to working with Frank again as we embark upon our larger upcoming Interior Design projects for our Clubhouse"
