Known for his cutting edge approach to interior design, Francois Frossard Design has become one of the most praised professionals in the business. His signature “grand style” infused with “high bold drama” can be found in celebrated venues all around the world. What is more, Francois Frossard’s team customizes each project and leads the current new romantic design movement, infusing decadent glamour with whimsy and mystique, pairing contradiction with tradition.
Admired for his impeccable design skills, Francois Frossard has gained an outstanding reputation among his coveted clientele, including current and former heads of state, A-List celebrities and numerous socialites.
Furthermore, Francois takes his inspirations from speaking to people, travelling and discovering villages in his beloved South of France. He believes that “inspiration has to come naturally and it cannot be false”, and considers it as something that really comes and goes. The Forge restaurant, in Miami, which he designed four year ago, is one of his favorite dining spots.
In 2010, FFD was charged with giving the legendary steakhouse a complete overhaul.

Replacing the antique-filled former decor are burnished golden-ash walls, low-slung white leather couches, deep basket-like chairs, hand-etched glass tabletops and gold-lamé wallpaper.
Yet with all these flourishes, The Forge somehow still manages to make you feel at home.
The bold side of Francois design.
