OUR STORY

Renato, Jr.

CUSTOM PLANNED INTERIORS is a New York-based, family-owned and operated interior design and retail furniture company. CPI was founded in 1975 by Master Artisan and Interior Decorator, Renato Roefaro, Jr. Renato apprenticed with Italian-American masters of interior painting, handcrafted plastering, custom mouldings and wall papering. He later provided high quality design and decoration services to countless clients from both near and far for over 25 years. He learned much of this trade from his father, Renato Roefaro, Sr., who worked as a master carpenter. The elder Renato’s master carpentry talents line the streets of quaint neighborhoods across historic Upstate, NY. Homes he hammered away at, still as beautiful today as they were decades ago, personify the golden age of American craftsmanship and architectural design he labored to preserve.

DEDICATED TO PROVIDING clients with the most beautiful, high quality, high value furnishings for their homes, Renato, Jr. traveled along the east coast to hand-pick furniture and décor for the Custom Planned Interiors Upstate NY showroom. Many of these lines of fine furniture, fabrics, lighting and accessories are still carried by CPI today.

Nina & Angelo

AT THE AGES OF 11 AND 9, Renato’s children, Angelo and Nina, began to assist him with the business. They traveled alongside their father and eventually worked independently with various clients.

TODAY, THE COMPANY is owned and operated by Angelo and Nina. CPI continues to serve the design, decoration and furniture needs of clients across Upstate NY & the NYC Metro-Area. Renato, Jr. is retired, yet continues to provide guidance and mentoring to his children. Renato Sr., too, continues to serve as the benchmark and inspiration for the family business.

As the company grows and evolves, it remains rooted in TRADITION, QUALITY AND BEAUTY.
