Frampton Co designs and creates interior experiences, specializing in interior architecture, design and art advisement.
Founded by Elena Frampton, the 10-person studio combines creative artistry with broad design capabilities and brass tacks management. Each project carries a specific vision that is client-centric, striking a balance that’s both unconventional and comfortable. Frampton Co approaches each interior as a whole environment, delivering spaces that are rich, expressive and truly one-of-a-kind.
The studio’s diverse portfolio includes residences, select commercial projects, and the F Co Collection private label furnishings on view at Exhibition their experiential gallery in Bridgehampton, New York. Inspiring visitors to enjoy an artful life, the gallery features annual summer shows and personifies the firm ethos of ‘create, make and share.’ Exhibition complements the firm’s Manhattan studio and the upper level year-round studio serves as their creative laboratory out east.
The Frampton Co team brings their robust management and technical skills to every assignment, executing the aesthetic vision from drawings and procurement to construction oversight.
“I come out of the gate each time with an entirely new vision for every project. The design solutions come very quickly – I know what I want to create.”
Elena’s initial design approach is instinctual. Her gift for understanding what the client really wants gives shape and feeling to a specific artistic vision for their interiors. Her design methodology is instinctive, rigorous and strategic, so that her magical animated projects come to life within specified timeframes and budgets. Art is intrinsic to her design process, and Elena expertly integrates a variety of mediums alongside architectural layers throughout her designs to more powerfully communicate who the client is.
Elena’s sensitivity and nuanced listening skills, combined with her deep relationships with vendors and dealers, allow her to gently push the envelope to create something personally tailored yet unexpected. She challenges the boundaries between masculine and feminine, art and design, resulting in unrepeatable compositions.
With a degree from the School of Architecture and Environmental Design at Arizona State University, Elena founded Frampton Co in 2015 after running a successful bi-coastal studio with a partner for the previous decade. She is an Allied member of The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), has taught at Parsons The New School for Design and is a committee member of the Parrish Contemporaries Circle at the Parrish Art Museum. A Southern California native, Elena lives in Manhattan and Bridgehampton.
