Great ideas are often born from unusual circumstance. Creativity, passion and a little bit of luck never hurt. To put it simply, PSI started with Richard Carbotti on a ladder hanging wall paper in one of Newport, Rhode Island’s famous summer cottages, Beechwood Mansion. The now internationally recognized company was literally created from the ground up, and began when the slightly over-confident design school graduate was asked to step down from the ladder to meet someone interested in throwing a series of events. He obliged (reluctantly), and was immediately met by Queen Elizabeth’s decorator. The events would be for the America’s Cup celebrations for Ted Turner and would include an event for Prince Andrew. Richard Carbotti’s event design and production proved to be a huge success, quickly launching him into a new career and industry spotlight, landing him in such publications as Town and Country and People Magazine.
