TESTIMONIALS

 

I referred my client to Johanna/Interior Guild and they were extremely happy with the service provided. They were very responsive and helped set up my client's apartment so that he could choose the design and style and move right in. this is ideal for any client that is relocating and for any New Yorker that wants assistance setting up their home whether it is for one room or an entire apartment. I was very impressed and will continue to refer future clients. -Emma L. Town Residential

Shelli you found me the perfect apartment and with Johanna's furnishings, it's been nothing but perfect for me! Also, my beautiful orchid was such a sweet thought and looks wonderful with the room!

"I wanted to inform you that Assad and I moved into our apartment and we absolutely love the place. The view at night is unbelievable. Thanks for finding us a gem (= Our move in went swiftly due to our interior designer and entrepreneur, Johanna Meise!- Mohy F.  NYC

 "I can't recommend the services provided by Johanna highly enough. It was daunting thinking about fully furnishing and accessorizing three offices in a matter of weeks. Fortunately, Johanna made the process not only easy but actually enjoyable. We provided her with measurements and an idea of our style preference, and within a few days she emailed us designs. She offered the right number of options--not too many where we would be overwhelmed but not too few where we didn't have the chance to personalize it. And when we wanted to vary from the original plan, Johanna was highly flexible and understanding of our decision-making process. What resulted are three beautiful offices for which we are constantly complimented.  Johanna has a great sense of style, an intuited idea of what her clients want, and is extremely efficient in delivering. I recommend her design group to many people." - Brittany O. San Francisco    

"I was trying to decorate a very difficult, long, narrow living room space and frustrated with how to make it work best for my family. Johanna helped me with furniture placement, color and draperies that transformed it completely into a very functional place that we now enjoy tremendously. Without her help, I would still be at square one and wondering what to do."- Lisa K. San Francisco

"Johanna has great artistic taste with an incredible sense of functionality Both are used uniquely; always keeping her client’s wishes in mind and with an economy that everyone will appreciate." -Daniel K. San Francisco

"Recently moved to NYC and needed to furnish a new apartment.  Went to on the recommendation of a friend and couldn't be happier with the results.  The team was very easy to work with.  They looked at our floorplan and made great suggestions based of the layout and look we were going for.  They were patient and helpful as we looked through all the options available... And in the end, we ended up going with what they had suggested all along. -Marshall E. NYC

I'm in love with the couch and ottoman that was recommended for my livingroom! Johanna and her assistant were very sweet and helpful. I originally was looking for a brown couch and they convinced me to get one in cream and they were totally right. The cream couch with brown ottoman looks fantastic in the space.I've been recommending them to all my friends. -Andrea S. NYC

I've finally put an end to my nearly yearlong search for the perfect apartment furnishings.  My small studio presented many spatial constraints on what  would fit in and look right. With their design know-how they suggested a round glass top which would take up very little "visual space", as she put it, and the open looking X base (in walnut) also lent itself beautifully to my needs.  The table arrived and it looks amazing!  I definitely plan to return to buy other pieces in the future.  They have a beautiful collection of furniture and the prices are really amazing...and, of course.  No...I'm not a relative...merely a very happy client.  Also, the delivery service they suggested was affordable and truly "white-glove." A wonderful experience all around! -Gregory R. NYC

My roommate and I furnished almost our entire apartment with Johanna.  She was fantastic!   She then made suggestions of certain furniture and layout to make the space a) look bigger and b) more usable.  The furniture is great quality and very affordable.  She has a great sense of style and design - she knows what will match and what won't and isn't afraid to say it.   I have since been recommending her to all of my friends. -Clem T. Manhattan
 

Johanna and her team recently served as the interior decorators for my new loft-style apartment in TriBeca. In short, they were extremely professional, very responsive and were an absolute pleasure to work with. I don't plan on moving anytime soon, but when I do, they will 100% be my first call to deck out my new space. What was once a large, sterile apartment is now an extremely warm, functional and beautiful home. They are hard working and extremely cost conscious and I am still amazed with how well the apartment turned out and how helpful they were!
The process started with a general brainstorming session where they asked many questions to get a feel of my personality, taste and generally what I was looking to accomplish.  They rolled out multiple layouts and themes in the initial stages of the design which helped an incredible amount when trying to visualize the future space. Their ideas were very creative and they presented multiple options that i would not have thought of myself. After picking a layout and general theme, they worked with me to develop a budget that I was comfortable with and they were always mindful of that budget when proposing items to purchase. 
They did an incredible amount of legwork to find furniture and accents from different sources and were extremely helpful in arranging deliveries and installations that worked with my schedule. -Jon B. NYC

"I wanted to take a moment and extend my appreciation for what you have been doing for us.  I am amazed at how quickly you put together a furniture plan, paint plan and managed all the various components as we get closer to the deadline.  I was delighted with yesterday’s presentation and I will make some decisions this weekend. Very easily I might add since you have narrowed it all down to a place where no matter what we choose “it will be fabulous”, if I may steal a quote from JM herself.  My sincere appreciation." -Sarah B. Oakland, Ca 

"I have been working with Johanna for over a month now and have been extremely satisfied.  I purchased a couch, mirror and headboard from them and the quality of the furniture is excellent.  The products are very well made and high end.  I have referred two friends there who have also had a a wonderful experience working with them.  They have a great eye for design and are very thorough.  I would highly recommend my experience." -Jennifer M NYC

"We’re so glad that this project has been as rewarding for you as it has been for us. We are *thrilled* with what you’ve helped us to accomplish, and often find ourselves falling in love with the enhancements all over again (e.g. in the middle of making dinner, realizing for the umpteenth time that our dining space is perfect for us, both in form and function). You have our most sincere thanks for your effort, creativity (especially with the budget), kindness, and attention throughout this process -- we’ll absolutely turn to you as new needs develop." - Heather and John Oakland Ca.

“I never hesitate to send our clients to Johanna and her design team. It's always a win/win situation. The ideas of the design team are innovative, creative, and really bring out the individual style and personality of each homeowner. Johanna and her team are great partners with our clients because they are open communicators and know how to make a client feel comfortable about all the decisions that are made in the design process.” - J. Ryder, Foster City

It was time to upgrade my furniture, the only problem is I have such a hard time trying to figure out what I want and how all the pieces fit together. I had been to a few other stores and wasn't impressed with the selection or prices, let alone the help from the sales people. 
When I learned I could come in with my room dimensions and they would help me create the perfect room was music to my ears. They were so amazing and had tons of patience since I was there for a few hours.  What started out as a search for living room furniture, I ended up with a kitchen table, chairs & deck too!  The quality of the pieces, the shipping and the overall price can't be beat. I'm looking forward to going back  soon when I redo my bedroom. -Gail T. NYC

“With Johanna Meise and her design team, I'm part of the creative process. So not only was the design unique, it's also uniquely me. The end result is not merely a design statement, but a reflection of my identity - from the things that I like, to the way I want my friends and family to feel. -Chloe O. San Francisco

We had two different living spaces designed for us – one with a contemporary  theme and one a country, seaside second home.  Furniture, layout, and accessories complemented and enhanced the sense of space. After nearly three years, we still find ourselves drawn into the feeling of serenity that her design team were able to create. We like to say that the architect built us a house, but the Johanna Meise  and her team made it into a home. It was so easy from start to finish. We just marveled with mouths agape at the way they transformed our vacation home from an eclectic mishmash of rooms and furniture, into a serene cottage retreat. - Susan Rossman NYC

“You came up with such brilliant solutions  quickly and painlessly which continues to dazzle me!”- Liv Smyth NYC

“We wanted to drop you a short note to thank you for the excellent job done on our new home. Your design services were outstanding. We were particularly pleased with your recommendations for our bedroom and new furnishings in the living room. Our home feels complete." - JBL, Glendale
