Recent Review: Arcbazar offers a very unique service. I was looking for some interior design ideas for a new home. There are many interior designer's that offer consultation services. They provide color options, ideas for furniture etc. Whats cool about arcbazar, however, is that it works based on a competition that you create on their website. Instead of getting one designer providing you one concept, you get multiple submissions from different interior designers. I created a competition to provide interior design ideas for my family room/kitchen area. I ended up getting 13 different design ideas. What I was impressed with was the quality of some of the submissions. Many of the designers submitted full color 3 dimensional layouts that made it a lot easier to visualize the design. They also provided a list of furniture, paint and accessory options. Overall I was very pleased with the results. Just be aware that you have to be reasonable about your award amount. You cant enter something like $50 and ask for a full interior design of your whole house. When creating your competition the website will give you a suggested award amount. This suggested award is based on the square feet of the area you wish to design. My only gripe with the service was their website. It's a bit rough around the edges and at times their site was very slow. Sometimes it could be frustrating to use. The only reason I didnt give the service all A's.

Recent Review: This was the first time I hired a decorator, and was more than pleased with the outcome. The moment I met Julie, I knew instantly we were going to hit it off, and we did! Our first meeting included a walk-thru of my home. We went thru each room and we discussed what changes I was looking for, likes, dislikes, etc. I explained what my budget was, and what I thought were 'my' priorities. We decided to start with the guest room. That same day, Julie planned a trip to two fabric stores, and we cut samples from those fabrics that caught my eye. Through processes of matching, coordinating, and elimination, a color scheme was realized, and a plan was forged. Julie sewed the bedding, shams, and curtains. A custom-designed room was in the making! After painting, and a new rug, the guest room was complete. It turned out great!. We continued thru the list of goals for the home: - Replacing blinds - New shutters for side windows - Paint colors for Master bedroom & bath. The project still continues...and I am looking forward to working with Julie on Phase II.
Reviews in Gaffney to Design an Interior Lighting Plan
The one thing that I love about Furniture Showcase is that they work so quickly. I have dealt with designers before and they seemed so slow in getting back to you on design ideas and also in getting the custom ordered items to you. It was a very frustrating process. Furniture Showcase can work so quickly because they have an incredible amount of inventory on hand. They have one of the largest showrooms/stores that I have ever seen when it comes to interior design. They can also custom order anything you need. It was one of the easiest design experiences I have had, and I will continue to use them in the future.

Ms. Julie was awesome!! She was quick to contact me after I purchased her Angie's List promotion. We had a brief chat by phone to explain what help we needed and settled on a date for her to come out. I met with Julie this morning and would absolutely recommend her to others. Within 20 minutes, she had a feel for our family, our decorating style, and what we were trying to achieve. Less than 15 min after that, she had identified the best fit paint colors for us, and we're looking forward to getting those colors on the wall and loving our house again! Ms. Julie was down-to-earth, friendly, and knowledgeable. After the painting is completed, I look forward to continuing our work with Ms. Julie on the interior design side!

Kelli did an excellent job helping us make the interior selections for our new office building, including paint colors, flooring, cabinets, countertops, and light fixtures. Her positive attitude and calm disposition helped to make a stressful project actually enjoyable. She also gave us counsel on buying furniture and accessories, and then personally helped install everything until the last piece of artwork was hung. Later we hired her again to help design a bedroom for our daughter.

Kelli helped me pick out paint colors, a new hardwood floor, and come up with a new plan for my furniture. Through out the process, she was prompt and professional. I loved everything she helped me pick out, and am excited to implement her ideas. I would definitely recommend her as an interior designer!

I have used Trio Interiors for many occasions. Julie Chace, the owner, is amazing to work with! She is friendly, competent, knowledgable, professional, and wonderful to work with. She worked within my budget and helped me pick out my fabrics beautifully for my new remodel. She sewed pillows, covered cushions, sewed curtains, helped with furniture design and layout, and much more. We also had Julie paint several rooms for us. She helped with color selection as well as any type of painting we wanted. She is fantastic and I would highly recommend her for hands on work as well as interior design options.

In the past, we've had a difficult time getting design help for the remodel of our 70's brick ranch. We are doing most of the work ourselves on a very tight budget. I get the impression that a lot of the interior designers in the area shy away when they determine that we can't afford $20,000 in consulting fees. I saw that Trio Interiors had an Angies List 'Deal', so I thought i'd give it a try. Julie showed up yesterday, exactly when she said she would. Julie spent an hour with my wife, and another hour with both of us. Julie was very confident in her design choices and did a very good job of explaining 'why' something was a good choice and something else was not. Julie knocked out our design delimas in short order, and even went as far as to tell us how to improve on the colors and finishes we already have. We are very happy with Julie and Trio interiors. We still have a lot to do in this old house, and we will definately be calling Julie again in the near future.

It went very well. He was excellent and did everything that I wanted. He was very accommodating and I was very pleased with his work. I moved into an apartment and I was able to schedule an appointment within a week of purchasing the deal. He did additional work so I paid a little more than the deal and he stayed longer than the 8 hour time frame so I gave extra $25. I have given his card to several people already. He didn’t want to accept the gratuity that I gave him and he said it was fine and he was there as long as I needed him and I gave an addition as a tip.

He optimized existing switches and took extreme care in locating and installing each fixture; always cleaning up sheet rock dust, insulation, and leaving a super clean work area each day. Mike is very professional, reliable and provides great work at a reasonable cost - I'd hire him again in a heartbeat!
