Francis Toumbakaris - New York
Francis, originally from Athens, Greece, first started in construction and design in New York as a handyman. Soon he went from completing simple jobs to doing full-scale renovations in Manhattan apartments. Now the owner of a contracting and design company, Francis says he thinks of his projects as his children and finds it impossible to choose a favorite. A former dancer, he says he thrives on the artistic side of home design and brings a visual flair to his work, which he describes as \"comfortable luxury with a classic urban feel.\"
