The Studio

The FRA studio is a place of art and design where collaboration with our clients begins.  Our 8,000 s. f. studio houses a 1,500 s.f. design showroom where clients and designers can meet privately with the FRA design team and review projects in an inspiring and focused setting. Designers and clients are invited to meet in this inspirational setting and review their projects and designs along with the vast library of forms and images that comprise the FRA archive.

Emily Bedard heads our team of sculptors and artisans in creating some of the finest ornamentation available. Emily’s design training and her years of experience provide clients excellent guidance in detailing their projects.

The studio is also home to a collection of historic plaster casts from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which is currently owned by The Institute for Classical Architecture and Art (ICAA).  FRA helps to maintain and restore the collection for the ICAA, and much of the collection is on display at their headquarters in Manhattan.
