FR Review:
Guided by industry veteran Edda Elias, Elias Associates approaches all projects from an architectural perspective, starting with the bones of the space and working up to a tailored, elegant result. Prior to forming her own firm in 1988, Elias was a partner overseeing sophisticated projects for a construction company, sometimes coordinating over a hundred vendors. Drawing on that experience, Elias Associates initially built its reputation on ground-up, whole-home projects. In recent years, however, clients have been turning to the firm for apartment work and smaller buildouts to great effect, saying that Elias’ ability to “get the job done” is useful for projects of any size. Aesthetically, styles run the gamut, from traditional to au courant. The thread that runs through all the work is attention to detail and a high level of finishing. Not content to simply polish the brass and fluff the pillows, Elias Associates will sometimes stock a client’s new kitchen with fresh groceries and vintage wine.

With a full-time staff of ten, Elias Associates tackles a select number of commissions per year, usually focusing on the five boroughs, Long Island and occasional jobs upstate. The firm’s process is described as “very professional,” with a project manager overseeing the day-to-day operations and Elias herself interacting with clients on bigger decisions. According to clients, Elias was helpful in establishing and keeping the design at a high level, then collaborating on finishes, textures, colors and furniture. Projects tend to be completed carefully, from painstakingly accurate historical restorations to pure modernism. Above all, references point to Elias’ meticulous nature and sharp sense of style when praising the firm.

Representative Client Comments:
“We developed a lot of trust in Edda very quickly.” “I loved everything in the finished apartment, from the chandelier to the coffee table.” “I had a lot of ideas going into the project. Edda took the best of them and then helped steer me in the right direction.” “Colorful and comfortable.” “Every contractor who walked through my door was so professional. It made a huge difference, and I know it was because of Edda’s connections.” “Higher end, but very worth it.” “She was very open about pricing.” “We could not be happier with the finished apartment. I wish we had a new one for Edda to design!”
