Q&A with Sagri Frieber, ASID Associate, Owner of Accents By Design of Bedminster

Interview by Laurie Pellichero

How long have you been in business, and what is your design background?
Thirty years ago, while a diplomat at the United Nations, I attended the Fashion Institute of Technology at night. I supplemented my income by decorating the residences of UN dignitaries.

Accents By Design offers full service interior design, accessories, and high-end window treatments.
