I retained Antonio Larosa to design and monitor the renovation of my home… The appearance of our finished project turned out even better than my wife and I had imagined. It is beautiful and functional. During the project he developed a good feel for our tastes and was very careful and became someone whose judgment we trust completely. Tony helped us make great decisions about the colors, lighting & textures to be used. He focused on many details which we would have overlooked. Once the project was completed we realized the importance of such details and foresight on Tony’s part.
“I consider Tony Larosa as an independent, highly creative designer/educator whose work shows a strong background in interior architecture and furniture design. As a highly creative individual his teaching and ideas does not conform to the prevailing norms of design educators… he has a broad capacity for ideas and problem solving, all based on a truly international perspective… is comparable to the most accomplished faculty with whom I have worked. “
“The Italian designer with keen eye for what Americans want”.
Mr. Antonio Larosa is a well-known design professional with extensive experience in both design and teaching. He is very knowledgeable of the design markets in Italy and in North America…
…Antonio Larosa has a passion for design that has a contagious way of inspiring the people around him.
I can say without hesitation that Antonio is a specialist and is passionate not only about furniture design but gifted in transferring that excitement to students programs rarely seen. His professionalism and attention to the details of conducting a multi-faceted furniture design program is exceptional. …I believe the standards Antonio achieved for quality of education are the benchmark for all the students who continue to contact him and stay connected to him.
…If I had to summarize Antonio is one sentence: He is a deep thinker with a brilliant design aesthetic, which will foster a new class of young designers who will engage with the world and seek to make a difference through their work.
