Carmela Posillico, president of AMi Design, founded the company in 1988.  Prior to starting her own business, Carmela gained expertise from working with architects and high end custom cabinetry shops.  The AMi team consists of talented designers and project coordinators who ensure that all aspects of the design process are undertaken with meticulous attention to detail as well as efficiency.  Along with AMi staff, we have a comprehensive team of vendors and trade professionals that we work with regularly.  Our list of contacts includes architects, high end custom cabinetry makers, contractors, vendors for all interior furnishings, etc. Over the years we have developed relationships with these trades to ensure that we get timely responses and the most competitive pricing for our clients.

The goal of each project is to create beautiful, timeless interiors that reflect our client’s visions.  When making furniture or finish selections, Carmela is known to insist that her clients “LOVE” each item we select.  “Ya gotta love it” she says.  This process guarantees that the end result of a project is truly unique to each client.  We take pride in having open and honest dealings with all of our clients.  This approach has fostered long lasting relationships with many clients returning to use us again and again over the years.

"I have worked with Carmela and AMI Designs on a few projects in my home.. She is a professional in every way. Her knowledge is extensive in all areas. What I liked the most was that she asked a lot of questions about what I wanted. She narrowed things down so that the selections would not be overwhelming. She then would give her opinion, but only after I gave mine. and ultimately the decision was mine to make. In addition, I was working with a budget and she respected that. She is also well regarded by many of the vendors, which that in itself says something. I would use Carmela again without reservation.” Review by a client."
