Edmund’s Interiors offers a wide array of custom design services from window treatments, upholstery and wall coverings to bedspreads, furniture and flooring. Owner and designer, Ed Santopietro, prides himself on providing his clients with all design aspects.
Mr. Santopietro acquires most of his clients from referrals. He typically visits a site to get a sense of the client’s tastes and objectives, and then returns with proposed ideas. Once a design plan is developed, he diligently gets to work ordering the fabrics and lining up the craftsmen.

After working from his home for 10 months he transformed his grandfather’s luncheonette in Woodbury, formerly Willie’s Luncheonette, into his design studio and has been there ever since.
