FR Review:
A highly collaborative approach is what many say differentiates John Cannon, who is known to weave an eclectic mix of styles as dictated by the client's personal taste. Cannon is described as an extremely down to earth person who views each project as a learning experience—and believes he learns as much from clients as they do from him. With a client-described obsession for details, Cannon takes an active role in every phase of a project. While the firm doesn't focus on a particular style, new homes in a contemporary style is a strength, and, a French/Italian mix are also done to the client's strong satisfaction.

With Cannon as the lead designer and Cary Frank heading the back office, the firm has a very professional reputation. Established in 1981, the firm employs seven, typically taking on eight to twelve commissions per year. Projects are evenly split between the city and suburbs, and boast a diverse clientele, including established suburban families and their younger, city-dwelling second generation. The firm will do renovations one room at a time for repeat customers. With an in-house computer-aided-design system, Cannon Frank designs a large amount of its own custom millwork, with skill. The firm has worked on many substantial-sized commissions with specialty requirements, including train rooms and movie theaters.

Cannon Frank generally takes on larger first-time projects and works on a standard retainer with standard hourly rates or standard markups on products (not both).

"He takes it ten steps beyond what I imagined.” "Our home is beautiful, thanks to John's genius and his followthrough on all aspects of the job."
