Full Service Interior Design

Praise & Kind Words

We engaged VARA for interior design, construction planning and oversight, as well as furniture selections for the common areas of our DuPage County home. We knew from our first meeting that we had selected the right firm. The ladies at VARA are personable, good listeners who make it their top priority to deliver a space that truly reflects you and your family. They show up when they say they will and will craft their proposal to fit your budget. Always willing to present options to keep your spend in line, VARA was a great partner with us and we maneuvered the many turns of a large residential project. VARA’s chosen contractors were equally impressive, the construction crew in particular. I’ve never even heard of a contractor that consistently shows up and gets done early.

The result is a space we are very proud of. Now more than a few months old, my wife and I still find ourselves standing just inside the front door staring at our new look.

We’ve recommended VARA to any friends and neighbors who inquire. Visitors to our home that truly know us all comment that the project reflects our personalities and style perfectly. There’s no higher compliments than those.

Featured Video Testimonial

VARA Design provided two options to remodel the common area hallways and lobby for a 5 story office condominium building in Oakbrook Terrace.

They incorporated the Association’s needs to update the walls, carpeting, elevator cabs and lobby, recognizing the financial limitations faced by the Association. Their ideas were right on the mark and addressed the concerns of the unit owners and the Board of Directors.

Their design was innovative and refreshing to update a 25 year old building which had no previous work done in the halls and lobby. Pleasing 30 unit owners is not an easy task, but their presentation to the owners of the design options resulted in a consensus agreement and positive feedback from all of the unit owners. Their use of a Powerpoint presentation with sample boards projected their design plan effectively.

Their team is articulate and responsive and has one of the most requires, but seldom delivered talents … They listen to and address the concerns and needs of their client.

As a property manager who has been in the business for over 30 years, it was a pleasure working with this group.
