The Many Styles Of ' A Design Genius '

Anthony Ingrao 

It is my opinion that he can do anything related to interior design. His design mind has very few limits. And what he does.............he does better than most !

Black Lacquered walls...Divine.
Check out the layered fabrics on the window treatments.
When I  look at his ' Rustic ' interiors..I feel as though I am peaking into Henry Tudor's country get away.
You must enlarge this image and look at the dragon chandelier ( and very other detail ).

There is Greek key detail on the rustic cocktail.
I love it ...he sneaks in a bit of the ' classics '
The wild flowers are perfectly light for this room.
I have a complete 'design crush' on this man !

His shop is on my FAVE street in the city. EAST 64th.
Stop in at his shop, then walk west on E. 64th , cross 5 th. Ave, keep walking right into the ZOO.
Say ' hello' to the Seals for me.

  1. Wow. He really CAN do almost anything, can't he! The meaning of eclectic! Bravo!

  2. Did you know that I used to work for Tony? The apartment on Fifth Avenue that he shares with his partner is my favorite interior of all time but it's never seen which is a shame. Also, the gallery has closed. He sold all the antiques at Sotheby's in October 2006. They moved the offices down there after I left.

  3. His style is so versatile! Thanks for the sweet comment, too - great suggestion!



Thanks for participating!!

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
