FR Review:
Praised for her ability to incorporate warm, natural elements and colors in her work, Susan Fredman is also greatly respected for her holistic approach
to interior design. Fredman is praised for her use of rich textures and her melding of traditional and contemporary styles, all accented by a love of natural materials. Clients say Fredman is evenhanded and works well with the client, sorting out any issues very professionally and quickly. Fredman gives back to the community through her nonprofit organization Heartland Alliance Designs For Dignity, which donates design services and materials to nonprofits which provide facilities for child care, assisted living and domestic violence survivors.

Fredman leads the team of 21 employees at the firm, which she founded in 1975. With fifteen ASID designers, the firm has a seasoned staff, most of whom have between eight and fifteen years of experience. We are told the firm will never turn a client away because of budget and will take on projects as small as a single window treatment, as long as the quality is high. Approximately two-thirds of the firm's projects are renovations, with the remaining one-third being new homes. Fredman and Co. do projects throughout the city, state, and vacation homes beyond, but there is a concentration of work on the North Shore. The firm also has a full-service satellite office and retail store in Union Pier, Michigan, named after Fredman's design book, "At Home With Nature."

With more than 100,000 fabric samples, a furniture line, and a new fabric line, insiders say Fredman ably manages a "mini-mart." Fredman and Associates generally works on a flat fee for new construction, standard hourly rates for design and retail product markups. Monthly statements are presented to clients who respect and appreciate the firms diligence and professionalism. ASID.

"Susie worked with the architect and builder to make sure all the room sizes were appropriate and our existing furniture could be incorporated." "She has a no-nonsense style of getting things accomplished." "Her ability to visualize a room and concept is superior." "She absolutely takes the clients' point of view, taking that to a philosophical and empathetic level, understanding what would make them 'feel good' in their own space."
