There was something missing and I could not put my finger on it. Then I realized I needed window treatments. I contacted Malgorzata at Spiritcraft Design. She responded promptly, came to my house, designed something perfect and provided a very fair quote. She started by assisting me with the picking out of the fabrics and designing the panels and valances for my LR. When she installed my first set of window treatments and I loved the difference they made in my Living Room.
I was so impressed with her artistry, workmanship and design, I ended up using her for every window in my house. The result is amazing. She additionally created two stunning padded headboards, one contemporary and one traditional in a velvet. Now I am proud to say my house is now a home! Thank you for your timeliness, professionalism, and care in creating a rich environment for me to live in. You are the best!

Mal designed unique treatments for all of our main rooms and guestrooms. We have decorative panels, valances, cornices and wonderful swags. She was able to provide us with the nicest window treatments in far better fabrics than we ever thought were possible. Her pillows and duvet covers are the finest we have ever seen as well. In providing us with interior decor that looks like Architectural Digest or the "Scalamandre Book", they beat our prior lowest interior designer estimate by more than 25%!

She gave us more than we had ever imagined that our budget would accomplish. She helped us find our style and produced some of the finest panels, swags and pillows we had ever seen. We also were introduced to using grommets, board mounts etc... Another designer would have charged us 2 times the price!!! We were able to afford true designer only fabrics because they do not gouge their clients and they did an amazing job from design through installation. There is no other option as these people are wonderful.

They designed and installed stunning window treatments in four rooms so far and they will be doing the rest of our house. They made us amazing drapery panels with swags and jabots, custom designed valances and the nicest Lambrequin cornices for our dining room that you can imagine.
We also purchased a New Millennium sideboard and china cabinet in solid Walnut. The quality is amazing and I think it is designed and made much better than the Cherry one we almost bought at Moser at twice the cost. They have also done a custom desk and an amazing solid Cherry Queen size bed. We could not be happier.

I would like to comment on the roman shades that I had Spiritcraft make for me. I am so very pleased how they turned out and Mal is an artist when it comes to designing treatments. Sadly, I choose my material and purchased before contacting them, because they could have gotten it for me at a discount. The shades are exactly what I wanted, they operate perfectly and I am very pleased with the time frame and workmanship. I would recommend Spiritcraft to anyone who wants a professional job without the high prices of some so-called discount outfits. Thank you for letting me share.

Absolutely fantastic construction to be handed down to the generations. I cant say enough about the hardwoods he uses, and the thought he places in the construction. Beautiful.

We were looking for quality furniture for months and were very disappointed with what we found in every furniture store and interior designer in the area until we found Spiritcraft Design. Our first order with them was a custom made solid Walnut and Cherry mantel and an entertainment center in Cherry with figured Walnut pulls. The custom made entertainment center is beautiful and has book matched dovetailed custom made drawers for storage of DVD's.
We thought we knew quality until we experienced the true craftsmanship of Spiritcraft Design! We were so impressed with the quality and value of our first pieces, we ordered the rest of our living room furniture. The living room included two end tables in Cherry, a cocktail table and a sofa table in Cherry and Walnut. Again Spiritcraft surpassed all of our expectations! Our living room furniture is exceptional, has wonderful details and is made from woods that we still are amazed by.
Then of course to finish off our room we needed to have new drapes. We ordered 2 new window coverings from Malgorzata. She was very patient with us we must of looked through every one of her fabric books. Once we picked out our fabrics she kept us informed when our material was coming in and when the cornice and drapes would be finished. When she installed our window treatments they just finished off our room beautifully!
Skip and Malgorzata are true professional in their respective trades and I would recommend them to anyone I know. You won't be disappointed, give them a call.

The first piece that I had made was a solid walnut sideboard and china cabinet in 2005. It by far exceeded my expectations then and is even more beautiful today. We originally looked into a Thomas Moser cabinet, but we are so happy that we went with Spiritcraft Design. You won't find any cheap "made in China" hardware on their pieces either. I have since bought a solid walnut, slab top bar, multi-wood bed, an entertainment center and a custom desk.
Their furniture, it is all solid hardwood and made to last for generations. We have Walnut, Cherry and Maple pieces and the quality of the hardwood is amazing. All of the joints are perfect, the nicest drawers I have seen and the grain and colors in the bookmatched woods are incredible. You simply cannot buy furniture like this at any store and it is priced very fairly. We have been so happy with our purchases and will be a very long term customer, We cannot have a higher recommendation. In a word, exceptional.

She was the first one that took the time to truly help me find the right fabric for my rooms. She was always willing to come back out and help and even visit another fabric store for a couple more hours to make sure I was happy with whatever fabric I selected. She was great at helping my pick out a fabric that would work well with busy chair patterns and deep colors on my walls. Very insightful. She was just so easy to work with and she truly cared about me really loving my choice. Her sewing on the drapes were impeccable. I highly recommend her for helping you in your drapes and she is also very fair in her prices.

We have two Spiritcraft pieces and are awaiting a third. We originally ordered an Exotica cocktail table and must say that there is nothing like the quality available. It has a Walnut slab top, two solid Walnut and Cherry panel legs and is insanely heavy and well made. We also have a Bossa Nova hall table that is also just perfect. That table fits our mid century decor perfectly and is spectacular. We await our custom Exotica upholstered sofa in Walnut and Cherry. We know it will be museum quality as well! We have been very pleased with our Spiritcraft furniture and will be a long term client. Thank you so much.

I purchased two custom designed decorative pillows from Spiritcraft Design. The craftsmanship was perfect, the fabrics stunning and the design was simply wonderful. They designed my pillows from a Scalamandre Italian damask and a Lee Jofa velvet that is incredible. The detail, the trims and the decorative tassels are pure elegance as is all of their fabric design work.
On service and delivery, I received them so quickly and the whole process was simple as they design the finest decorative pillows on the planet in my opinion. They come highly recommended!
