The firm recently finished the architecture and interiors for a house on the Katy Trail, along with a new project at Hall Arts. Currently, they're renovating and furnishing a condo at the Mansion Residences, their fourth in the building.

Frank Lloyd Wright house in Phoenix restored by Bodron/ Fruit. Dining room in the redone Philip Johnson-designed Beck house in Dallas. Svend Fruit, Mil Bodron. 102
