I’m not easily impressed, but when it comes to Audio One’s David Frangioni, I am constantly blown away.

As a one time amateur drummer in Queens, I remember it being tough to get a gig in someone’s living room. David, on the other hand, was playing full-time in clubs around New England by the age of 17 and already experimenting with electronic drums. From there, he became a world renowned expert in audio technology, whose amazing list of credits with rock legends is too long to list here (Aerosmith, Ozzy….well, just click here to read his whole story).

These days he lives in Miami, and he’s the go-to guy for top Miami interior designers (and far beyond) who want their clients to have the world’s most state-of-the-art sound systems in their homes. We love working with him and I’m thrilled to be able to call him a friend.

So naturally we asked him to participate in our “5 Definitions” series where we ask leaders in the world surrounding high end interior design to give their personal definitions of some concepts that makes the best home designs happen.

Let’s listen.

What’s your definition of…? 

  1. Luxury
    Luxury is enjoying the best of the best in all aspects of life. Home(s), Cars, Jewelry, Service, restaurants, Hotels, etc.
  2. Lifestyle
    Lifestyle is the level at which you can enjoy luxury. The more luxury, the better the lifestyle. If it’s worth doing, it’s worth over-doing.
  3. Beauty
    It truly is in the eye of the beholder. Sleek lines, statuesque physique, clean appearance is beautiful to me.
  4. Taste
    There’s great and there is everything else. Those with taste, know what’s great. Frank Sinatra, Elvis, the Beatles. Italian cars. The list goes on.
  5. Quality Interior Design
    Quality interior design makes the most of a given space, bringing to life an area that otherwise is un (or less) inspiring. The design of home is the pulse of one’s every day life so it needs to capture the essence of the home owner and go beyond. Of course, high-end technology makes it even better.
