Frampton Co designs and creates inspiring interior experiences, specializing in interior architecture, design and art advisement with an expressive and unparalleled use of color, and a focus on using artworks to embolden integrative, personalized spaces.
Founded by Elena Frampton, the 12-person studio combines her extensive artistic networks with broad design capabilities and brass-tacks management. Each project showcases a specific vision that is client-centric, striking a balance between limits-pushing and familiar. Frampton Co approaches each interior as a holistic environment, conceiving of spaces that are rich in character, utilize otherworldly palettes, and illustrate the dynamic, one-of-a-kind nature of their inhabitants.
The studio’s diverse portfolio includes residences, select commercial projects, and F Co Collection private label furnishings on view alongside other curated artworks for purchase in gallery settings at Exhibition The Barn in Bridgehampton and Exhibition Penthouse in NYC.
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.
