“It is a distinct pleasure to give a glowing recommendation for Jo Laurie and her team. She was very helpful to me both when I was single and moved into my first NYC apartment on the Upper West Side, and, again, several years later, when I was married. Jo Laurie is thoughtful and has been able always to translate our goals creatively into the realm of reality. She helped us achieve a design that is as modern as it is warm and inviting. Additionally, she knows well how to optimize those elusive furniture arrangements. Every time we called on her, she has given us a finished design that works exquisitely.” February 10, 2012

Both the client and I were impressed by the high standard of project
