Frank Carfaro serves as President and Creative Director of DESIRON, a celebrated contemporary home furnishings company. A native East-Coaster, Carfaro was raised on his family’s farm in Tewksbury, NJ, and grew up with a love of good design and iron in his blood. Carfaro, a third generation ironsmith whose family traveled from Turino, Italy in 1921, was taught ironwork by his grandfather and thus igniting a passion for craftsmanship and design. He continued his studies at Rutgers College, University of Grenoble, La Sorbonne and L’Ecole des Beaux Arts.
Following a short tenure on Wall Street, Carfaro decided to marry his business savvy with his passion for design and artisanal craftsmanship. The result: in 1997 he founded DESIRON. One year following its debut, the company sold over $1 million dollars of signature product. DESIRON is committed to producing Eco-Friendly, American-made home furnishings that elevate sophistication in any space.
When Frank isn’t designing, creating, and collaborating on projects, he spends his time exploring the world. Whether he is sailing the Figawi, racing cars at the Laguna Seca racetrack, spear fishing in Block Island, travelling in Europe, snowboarding in Vail, or riding his motorcycle, Frank always has a penchant for adventure. You can follow his adventures on his BLOG or watch how he started DESIRON over 15 years ago HERE.
