We’ve known Karen for several years and have worked closely with Karen and The Design Project as our preferred supplier of furniture, furnishings and many textiles for two years.

Karen’s vast and incomparable knowledge of the manufacturing and wholesale industry is extraordinary.  Her ability to find and recommend everything from unique to special is one of the reasons we’ve asked Karen to assist in significant procurement projects we’ve undertaken over the past few years.  With projects ranging from just over $5,000 to over $300,000 in product purchases, Karen always provides the same enthusiasm, creativity and professionalism.  Whether behind the scenes or in front of clients, she is the perfect extension of our design business.  …see more

As my design business grew, one of my biggest challenges was managing the time spent sourcing furniture – only to discover that it was a) out-of-stock or b) not within the client’s budget.  Since I began working with the Design Project I have saved so much time and money! I simply give my parameters and Karen provides everything I need to present the perfect options to my clients.

I no longer have to follow-up on orders with countless suppliers and retailers: everything is on one order.  And The Design Project keeps ME informed every step of the way.

To any designer or decorator that is frustrated with sourcing, I would highly recommend the The Design Project! -MCG, Toronto

The Design Project is an outstanding firm whose services we use often. Their knowledge of furnishings, fabrics, accessories, case goods, suppliers and anything related to furnishings within the design industry, is truly incredible and invaluable to me as an interior designer.

When working with Karen at the Design Project, we have complete confidence that she will will find just the right furnishings for our interior design and decorating projects, both style wise and within our clients budget. The amount of time they save us in sourcing and procurement is so helpful. They have accounts with many suppliers which means they can offer a wide range of furniture styles from all over the world.

We entrust the design project to work on many projects with us and value the service they provide. We are looking forward to continuing our working relationship together for a long, long time! Thank you Karen to you and your team for all that you do to make our lives easier and our clients spaces beautiful!
