Craftsman / Farmhouse,
Imagine for a minute arriving in the trawling metropolis of New York City with only three suitcases and a box. You immediately start work and then spend every other waking moment over days, weeks and perhaps months hunting down your perfect apartment only then faced with moving into a white box. Time poor, and faced with the interior design skills of a fifth grader, what do you do? Of course you begin your research online but very soon become absolutely inundated with the plethora of options available: Everything from complete turnkey services for the cost of an arm and two legs to the other extreme where you upload floor plans and without any consultation you’re provided with a list of items you need to purchase and not really sure it’s the look you’re going for in a space you want to call home . Then you find Joe from Designs by Human. Joe provided the perfect balance between complete turn key and internet email; a personalized Human approach just as his namesake suggests. With his consultative style Joe met with me and spent time understanding what I was looking for: A warm design and a space that would feel like home — likely a tough ask (just imagine a typical New York apartment and a design that accommodates a place for overseas guest, a space to entertain and a place to work from home) and a client (me) who’s likes to get involved and is hands on. But Joe with his incredible patience absolutely nailed it. An amazing design in such a small space filled with interesting artistic elements and features integrated throughout my home. It feels warm and personalized incorporating elements of “me”, is complimented by my guests, and is certainly something that I’d never have managed to accomplish by myself. So if you're looking for someone to help with your own project I'd really recommend getting in touch with Joe from Designs by Human. Thanks Joe. I’m really glad we met and thanks for all your help!Apr 14, 2016Verified
Joe did an excellent job helping me with my 400 square foot apartment. I had a limited budget, had to reuse several pieces of furniture and had to find a place for Mr. Kitty's bed. The apartment turned out absolutely beautiful. Joe came up with so many great ideas and was so easy to work with it made the whole experience a pleasure. I would highly recommend him for any project.Sep 22, 2015Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing can vary depending upon the project but in most cases it is a flat fee for design services for a specific scope of work and then hourly for all ordering and project management. We utilize our purchasing platform to show you all the products in one place and make that as simple as only a few clicks to buy!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We always like email and digital communication but nothing beats an in person meeting. We want to spend time with you and your space before pricing out your project as we need to understand your needs and how the space(s) should be utilized.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?We reach out to vendors almost daily for projects and visit showrooms frequently. A lot of times these vendors will have classes on everything from their products to life and safety issues to new codes and requirements.
