“We don’t really make a distinction between residential and commercial work,” Carl D’Aquino says of D’Aquino Monaco, the firm he heads with architect Francine Monaco. “We’re always looking for what’s personal about any project.” A modernist sensibility applied to both contemporary and period design has been key to the partnership’s success. In addition to having a large body of work published in the design press, D’Aquino has been named one of America’s top designers by both House Beautiful and Metropolitan Home.
A graduate of the School of Architecture of the City University of New York, D’Aquino is a member of the Design Council for the Museum of Arts and Design, and serves on the Global Color Research Panel. He also served on Benjamin Moore’s Design Advisory Council for three years, and in 2007, he was inducted into the Interior Design Hall of Fame.
