About Us


Elaine Culotti grew up a military brat, traveling throughout Europe with her English-born mother and Irish-American father. She attributes her sense of style and drama to her younger years in German castles, English Farm houses and wonderful towns of Renaissance Italy.

Over 20 years ago Elaine opened her own business importing antiques, collectables, textiles, and architectural elements where she first immersed herself in the design world. Years later, Elaine branched out to begin her own design firm, retail store, and manufacturing facility, Porta Bella. Today, Porta Bella is home to exquisite furniture designed by Elaine and manufactured by her husband Gary in their 25,000 square foot Porta Bella factory. Porta Bella is also known for their custom drapery, cabinetry and other design elements.

Elaine's experience in design has given her the talent of managing projects from start to finish for her clients. She has assembled a trusted network of painters, plasterers, carvers, and other craftsman to work alongside architects, contractors, and other professionals to get her projects completed according to her high standards.
