Frank lived most of his life and raised his family in Dutchess County, NY which is part of the historic Hudson Valley. He has been married to Jean for 29 years and they have one son.
Frank’s interest in rustic design started after spending many vacations at Jean’s family cabin in the Adirondack Mountains in upstate NY. With a background in construction and his love of the uniqueness of rustic design, they purchased a small 1930’s mountain cabin to renovate. The end result earned him a feature article in ‘Cabin Life’ magazine and was a successful year-round vacation rental.
He started selling his rustic furniture and accessories on a part time basis to shops in small towns around the Adirondack park. When Frank retired in 2015, they decided to relocate to the Asheville area due to their love of the mountains, the huge local artisan scene and their desire for a warmer climate. They were fortune enough to find a home and settled into the beautiful and friendly community of Sandy Mush.
