“It was in 1998, shortly after I bought my first New York apartment, that I met Karen Frome. She is welcoming, open to ideas and she will give an honest answer and negotiate a solution. Her sense of space is a true talent! Her vision is timeless – her clean, simple well appointed lines keep the integrity of the space.” 

 Icegayle Johnson, New York City 


“We had a great experience with Rise.  They were creative, responsive and easy to work with.  The design they came up with was exactly what we wanted.  We would definitely recommend them.”  

 Lauren Karp, Fire Island



“I had the pleasure of working with Rise Projects on a challenging project with a very tight construction schedule. The project was completed on time due Rise Projects’ leadership and dedication. The client is universally thrilled with the design of their new space.” 

Anne Asher, Architect – Client Representative for George Jackson Academy


“Rise Projects performed interior design and architectural planning for our New York Arabian Oud perfume house. They were fantastic. They have an artist's eye and an architect's skill. They were professional, courteous and timely with their work. They were always on hand, even after the end of the project. We highly recommend Rise.”

Hassan El Neil, Arabian Oud, New York City
