Elena Frampton Explores the Link Between Craft and Comfort in Her Exhibition Penthouse
Earlier this year, interior and furniture designer Elena Frampton of Frampton Co curated “Coming Home,” a survey of furnishings that explore the relationship between craft and comfort, at her exhibition penthouse in New York. Among the pieces were chairs by Christina Z. Antonio and Chen Chen & Kai Williams, Nick Missel stools, mixed-media wall hangings by William Storms, and Frampton’s own expanded F Collection. Her redesigned Tux sofa takes inspiration from equestrian farms, with tailored leather piping and fringing. Arc, a shapely poplar desk perfect for WFH, now comes in a new Forest lacquer, its high-gloss automotive finish a nod to Frampton’s love of classic cars.
