The New Bespoke is a compelling first monograph on the work of internationally recognized and published interior designer Frank Roop. A mastermind of original color palettes, Roop leaves his signature couture touch on each and every space that he creates. To create truly inspired spaces, the ingredients that go into his projects are unique: almost all of the furniture and furnishings he uses in his interiors are either vintage finds or custom made pieces of his own design. Roop began his design firm after a career in specialty menswear, where he acquired the principles of design that gave him a special and unexpected basis for formulating and conceptualizing his interior design schemes. For Roop, a room is not just a space to be inhabited: it is a garment to be worn, and an impeccably tailored garment at that.
* > Frank Roop was born and raised in Malibu, California. He now lives with his wife Sharon (and dog Remy) in Boston, Massachusetts. He started his firm in 1998 after a career in fine men’s specialty store retailing. He has completed projects in and around New England and Florida. His work appears regularly in national and international publications, such as Architectural Digest France, House Beautiful, Elle Decor, Metropolitan Home, Veranda, Traditional Home, and Boston Globe.
