FR Review:
Recognized for her designs of timeless grace, refined colors and graceful patina, Dale Carol Anderson is considered to be a master by her clients. Rooms will often include fine French furniture or English antiques, expertly mixed with modern, comfortably-sized upholstered pieces in muted hues. Accessories figure largely in the designs, and clients remark that no detail is too small for Anderson to do to perfection.

Recent work includes a mix of projects for downtown and suburban Chicago clients and others throughout the U.S. Most patrons are more established and many have multiple homes, all done by Anderson. The firm is small, with five employees, and Anderson takes pride in working closely with clients and subcontractors, supervising all aspects. Her team is consistently noted to be effective and highly service-oriented.

Supporters report that the quality of the firm's products can be as high as the clients want to take it, but not all has to be of the ultimate quality. Living rooms can range from $50,000 to $200,000+. The firm works with an upfront retainer, standard markups on products and high hourly rates (lower for design associates). Anderson is considered to be a well-kept secret, passed among close friends.

Representative Client Comments:
"Dale is divine to work with—she goes above and beyond." "All other interiors pale in comparison to Dale's." "She knows her stuff, be it a French antique or the ultimate silk tassel." "She remains cool and collected, yet so effective even under stressful situations. The day before a big party, she made the electricians move the sconces so they were exactly centered, just as they should have been." "The upholstery is all big enough for relaxed afternoons and long naps." "I am particularly enamored of Dale's millwork—it has just the right amount of patina, looking as if it had been there for generations." "She is the consummate professional with the client's interests at heart."
