Soon after we purchased a prewar apartment in Manhattan, we began to look for a design professional that would design, restore and reconstruct this new apartment to fullfill our needs. We expected to utilize our existing furnishings and supplement with new purchases to create an integrated look. We interviewed a number of decorators and choose Specialfx / Alphonso DiLauro based on reccomendations and photos of completed jobs. He quickly developed a plan within our budgetary requirements, got multiple quotes, hired and supervised a variety of vendors and executed our plans in a timely manner. In a few words Al is knowledgeable, honest and very respectfull of all your needs. He is very easy to work with and always did respond and react efficiently to all of our questions. In short, he took care of our entire project from design to construction and finishing and even showed up on moving day for final touches and helped unpack our possessions. He is very knowledgeable and dependable and would strongly reccommend Specialfx for all design projects.
