Nothing but praise for Level Studio. Luca and Vinh were my first foray into hiring an 'interior designer' and they hit it out of the ballpark (and possibly left me with unrealistic expectations for future projects!).
Luca and Vinh were engaged to help me plan and design my new build condo in full. From the first introductory call, it was clear that they are a welcoming and knowledgeable pair. In terms of the project design - I had a general vision and some old family pieces I was keen to introduce to my new home. It isn't easy marrying old furniture with a contemporary style, but Luca and Vinh succeeded. They found a way to interpret my clumsily explained thoughts and very patiently met with me at meetings to walk through the vision for each room. It was a wonderful collaboration and such a pleasure to chat with them at each stage of the project. Their enthusiasm and eye for design is infectious. Not only does the condo look and feel like a home, but it is wildly functional. My condo followed an odd floor plan: Luca and Vinh were able to come up with a creative custom island/table configuration that maximized the space and layout, seating arrangements and views. It was a genius solution and I am so pleased with my home.
Luca and Vinh bring very complementary skills to the project and it is special having two minds thinking about your project (creatively and technically). They thoughtfully considered every element - from the size of the kitchen island to the positioning of the lighting arrangements. Every idea they brought forth had been carefully considered and they presented their reasoning behind each design element which I loved.
They are both terrific project managers and they have a wealth of experience on which they drew. There are special planning considerations for a new build and they walked me through and managed the process seamlessly. I appreciate how they were realistic and honest about timing and budget expectations - they delivered on time and on budget and there were no bad surprises along the way. The whole process probably took about six months but it - surprisingly - did not feel like it dragged at all. They optimized our timing to minimize any furniture shipping delay times. There was minimal interruption to my lifestyle.
Luca and Vinh's care and attention to detail is remarkable - it was white glove service the entire way. Moreover - they are wonderful and caring people who love their work. They have great relationships with their tradespeople and it shows. I recommend them wholeheartedly.
