“Having moved into a newly renovated home in Fort Lauderdale, I wanted to work with a designer to come up with a design plan for my new home. Lance implemented a contemporary design in a neutral palette that provides the perfect showcase for displaying my collections of photographs and art glass. Throughout the project, Lance’s professionalism and communication assured me that the end result would exceed my hopes for what I was seeking for the right look for my new home.

In fact, I’m now working with Lance to complete the design and installation of new furnishings for a sun room where I’m equally looking forward to another stunning room as a result of Lance’s handiwork. Based on these experiences, I highly recommend Lance as both a designer and business professional.

“We have two differing design preferences – traditional – complete with Federal style, antique furnishings and – Caribbean beach cottage – including whimsical decorative items like rattan furnishings and unique tropical lighting. As such, my husband and I knew we needed someone to help us pull together our differing design styles. In meeting with Lance, we appreciated his ability to listen to what we each wanted and find a truly unique way to marry our clearly different “looks.”

Lance presented us with the idea of using our traditional, antique furnishings in the front entrance area of our home. Then he suggested a mix of new British Colonial and transitional seating for the adjoining living room areas including TV viewing and a separate sitting space. Fabrics with playful sea creatures and tropical foliage cohesively tied both sitting areas together.

Most recently, at Lance’s suggestion, we added a trestle dining table and benches with a distressed finish. Placing the table parallel to a wall of sliding glass doors opening to the pool area completed the casual, beachside look we were seeking. Lance created a custom upholstered bench and throw pillows for the dining nook visually connecting the kitchen and main living areas. He also selected a number of handsome pieces of outdoor furniture with a weathered look and a welcoming light blue fabric, perfect for our South Florida home.

Lance created an overall fantastic design including whimsical elements with practical functionality. Proud to call Lance a good friend, we also truly feel that Lance not only captured our imaginations but also our hearts by making our home comfortable and enjoyable.”

“Lance is intelligent, creative, clever, has an eye for detail and is a pleasure to work with. I hired Lance to create a stylish but relaxed design concept for my living/dining area using existing furniture and accessories that I found in India, Nepal, China, Turkey, Egypt and Morocco. Lance coordinated all of these different styles by creating a Bohemian style for the rooms by adding new window treatments, reupholstering chairs, new pillows and other minor upgrades. Lance was able to take this mix of styles and create a look that is fun, relaxed and reflects my interest.

Lance knew exactly what we wanted for a desired change in our family room. He was working with a husband and wife team who described things differently, but understood us well enough to be able to design and create a comfortable living space that was pleasing to us both. We wanted to take our time on the project and he didn’t push, which we really appreciated, since we wanted to be sure of our choices.

His pick for our color palette focused us into the shades we wanted and his suggestions helped us figure out the patterns and shades for a new couch, new recliner, reupholstered chair, new rug and new drapes that would all go together. We have oak paneling, so paint considerations were not applicable. We did not know how difficult it is to coordinate the different fabric, rug and drape samples. Lance expertly handled the job. We are very pleased with our “new” family room. We felt very comfortable working with Lance. Although he only designed one room, we’ll be asking for his help with our next project.

Lance did a great job for me and he was so easy to work with. He helped me select fabric to recover my two love seats and one sofa for our great room. He ordered everything and arranged for a great upholsterer to complete the pieces. I am so happy with the results – he listened carefully to what I wanted and needed and all the furniture came out looking terrific and is very comfortable. I wish I had more that he could help me with!

He was always prompt and that is not always easy with the traffic on Cape Cod. Above all he was nice, easy to be around and so considerate. As a side note, he also helped my parents with a few things when they moved into a new house. They had some very old Mexican dishes that they wanted to display somehow and Lance designed and hung up a beautiful array of this pottery on their family room wall. It truly is a work of art and the absolute focal point of their room – more than beautiful and my parents were so pleased. It is quite original and this wonderful pottery is finally out of boxes after many years. Stunning – and my parents think Lance is the greatest and has such a sense of style.

For me ( and my parents ) there is nothing he could have done any better and our experience was pleasant and successful. I would work with him again any time on any project – he really is outstanding.

“Seeking advice on furnishings, rugs and lighting for a great room refresh project, I contacted Lance after finding his website on the Internet. Impressed by his online portfolio and overall professional presentation of everything from products to testimonials and descriptions of how Lance works, to learning more about Lance via his bio, I decided to call him. Prompt and friendly, I found his demeanor engaging and his interest in me and my project refreshing. Lance has a way of both understanding exactly what I want for my design projects and putting me at ease with his self-assured manner.

Simply put, I love everything Lance presented to me from the chandelier, rug and dining set in my dining area to the sofa, with motorized reclining seats at either end, the tropical area rug and coffee and end tables ensemble for the living area. So thrilled with Lance’s expertise, I am now working with him on selections of outdoor furniture for my balcony.

Lance’s combination of his understanding nature, considerable design talents and professional manner make working with him a pleasure. And the results of his combined skills guarantee satisfaction. I highly recommend the opportunity to work with him and look forward to the chance to work with Lance again.”

Lance created a new floorplan, after the implementation of another designer’s plan, that improved both traffic flow and balanced the visual weight of the space. By relocating several pieces of furniture in my living room and dining nook, he created a more practical, functional, and attractive living environment. Additionally, he obtained a number of collectibles that enhance the appearance of the space and provide a continuity that was lacking previously. I should have hired Lance in the first place!

“Over the years, as my art collection has grown, Lance encouraged me to revisit the way the pieces were arranged. Recently, we spent a long afternoon regrouping and re-hanging the majority of the collection, and I couldn’t be happier. Lance’s creativity and eye for detail have enhanced my home.

“As I am a busy individual with interests ranging from real estate holdings to life coaching leaving me with precious spare time to even imagine home improvements, Lance’s home editing expertise provided me with a much appreciated revamping of my Florida Room. Through a careful and thoughtful analysis of the space, Lance eliminated clutter, enhanced functionality, and provided me with peace of mind with a job – I hadn’t the time to do – well done.
