Francine Gardner, Principal and Creative Director
Despite being raised in a place steeped in tradition, Francine has always been a forward thinker. She left her tiny 12th Century Roman village in France at a young age on a quest to enrich her soul. That passion continues today as she strives to learn more about the world, the people, and the objects that embrace the new and honor the past. These discoveries are the muses for her unique vision that has made her the tastemaker and admired designer she is today.
Francine’s education isn’t limited to the arts and travel, when she first came to the United States, she studied in Boston where she received an MBA in international finance. This education allows her to access her clients “Wall Street” point of view and manage large-scale projects fiscally responsibly.
