Introduction: An award-winning interior designer, George has worked in the industry for over sixteen years. Originally from sunny California, George’s background as design lead at Ethan Allen brought him to the Middle East, where he set up his own studio. Region-wide, his design style and his range of home accessories are being recognized as industry-leading. In George’s newest venture, The Atelier, he takes his exclusive design creations from Dubai & the UAE to clients worldwide and now in Southern California. Personal, every step of the way. Personalized and tailored to each of our client’s specific style, needs and budget, George Foster The Atelier proposes full design schemes. With exceptional attention to detail, our team of highly skilled designers turn design stories into reality, and manage projects from concept through to completion. All the while, we guide our clients through each chapter of the creative journey. MY VISION Creativity is experimenting, growing, talking, risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun. As Interior Designer, I bring my creative vision to life for my clients & projects. I am constantly seeking the New: materials, palettes, brands, unexpected elements. My brand grew from a wish as a young boy, to a dream in my early Designer days, to a Design Studio (House of Design by Mr. G) and finally an Atelier. Today, my commercial and residential clients come from across the UAE, the US, and the country where my ancestors are from, Panama. My vision? It’s hard to reduce it to a sentence, but I accept the challenge: To create a design journey that speaks volumes without saying a word. Welcome to my journey.

I am a real estate broker of 35 years and I have had many homes staged , but what George and his crew did was magical. The quality and his expertise is apparent in all he does . The house that he staged , I know will sell quickly because of his work . I will have the place photographed and forward the photos when complete . In the meantime , I absolutely would recommend George. He is beyond excellent !

Details: Selling home • 5 rooms • 3,000 - 3,500 sq ft • No, my home is vacant

My experience with George was amazing. My high school daughter wanted an old world European vibe bedroom. I had no clue on what to do. George took control with enthusiasm! He spoke with my daughter intensively and in great detail about her vision. The end results blew our expectations away. I will definitely use George again for another project. Alyson

George presented himself very professionally, responding promptly to the initial request for information and quickly scheduled an in person consultation. However it soon became obvious that he was unable to understand or desire to follow our budgetary constraints, our interests, or provide realistic options. After “selling” us on how he and his team would provide the service we wanted and we paid the consulting fee and purchased, through his company with ridiculous mark-ups, two elements supply elements. We were presented with the labor costs only which far exceeded our initial budget. Very disappointed, would not recommend.

Details: Design of 3 - 4 rooms • Kitchen • Living room • Dining room • Bedroom(s) • 2,000 - 2,500 sq ft • Flooring selection • Lighting selection • Space planning / layout • Industrial • Contemporary • Eclectic • My home, venue, etc.

GEORGE FOSTER The Atelier's reply
Hello Darrin, We find it unfortunate that that was your experience with The Atelier. Our team was quite excited to continue working with you; however, it didn’t seem that we were the firm you wanted to continue with. You suggested we work with a particular furniture distributor for budgeting reasons which we did. Note that the budget is something that you have control of. However, after the design presentation, you mentioned how the furniture distributor was not delivering quality furnishings due to prior experiences. In addition, you were very direct in wanting luxury furnishings and lighting. Regarding lighting, we presented you with the Restoration Hardware chandeliers you selected; however, the price tag was not your liking. After that design meeting, we were later informed that you didn’t want to work with the firm, and we weren’t given an answer to why. However, we were and are still open and willing to make adjustments. If you wish to work with the firm in the future, we will gladly aid you in designing your property. Thank you, The Atelier

I had an amazing experience with Mr. George Foster. I had explained to him my vision and how I wanted to feel when I entered my apartment. He was able to understand what I wanted with little direction and deliver an amazing product. It had been the first time that I felt like I had a home and it was because of his attention to detail. Thank you!!!

He’s amazing. The best designer I’ve ever worked with. Hands down. I highly recommend him for any project - he will “wow” you, I guarantee it.
