ARTERIORS GUEST DESIGNER
Chicago based designer Frank Ponterio approaches each project with impeccable restraint and intention, employing exquisite craftsmanship to deliver awe-inducing interiors that encourage conversation. In his debut collection for Arteriors, Frank travels between old world and new, seamlessly blending architectural influences drawn from his family’s rich Italian history with an astute precision that could only be attributed to a 25-year career.
A delicate dichotomy unfolds—metal and hand-woven rope, embossed leather and hammered brass, polished bronze, vellum and hand etching—all designed for a life well-lived and shared with others.“I LOVE TO ENTERTAIN AND MAKE PEOPLE FEEL COMFORTABLE IN OUR HOME. IT’S THE IDEA THAT A GUEST CAN COME OVER AND GRAB WHATEVER BOTTLE OF WINE THEY WANT, START WHATEVER CONVERSATION THEY’D LIKE AND STAY UNTIL THE SUN COMES UP"
