Fran Murphy Passes Torch To Daughter Carol At Interior Design Firm

After more than 45 years, Fran Murphy — “The Design Diva” — is passing the torch to award-winning interior designer Carol Murphy, her daughter.

Fran Murphy first opened her design firm in the design district of Miami in the mid-1960s and moved to the Palm Beaches in 1974. From the beginning, her work with the Downtown Development Authority was instrumental in the revitalization of downtown West Palm Beach.

Having moved from the nationally recognized D&D Centre in West Palm Beach to its Juno Beach Design Centre, the Fran Murphy Design Centre showcases three floors of high-quality furniture from domestic and international manufacturers.

In addition to furniture and the interior design services of Carol Murphy, the Fran Murphy Design Centre also features showrooms of top-of-the-line manufacturers in home décor and furnishings. Browse the showroom of Downsview Kitchens, custom home audio/video specialists Seagull Electronics, the inventory from A World of Rugs or wood floors featured at the MAFI showroom.

Carol is inviting new and previous customers, architects, developers and builders to visit the Fran Murphy Design Centre at 12800 U.S. 1 in Juno Beach. Call (561) 626-6200 or visit to learn more.
