FR Review:
Mixing the classically enduring and beautifully erudite with excessive fun is Eric Cohler's modus operandi. Known for realizing his clients' visions with a dedicated interest and an edge toward the future, Cohler is said to have his clients' view at heart. With a confident countenance, this designer deftly composes the fine and the found, the traditional and the postmodern. Appreciated for his architectural inventiveness as well as his design skills, Cohler effectively works with clients' architects from a project's inception, adding significant architectural enhancements.

Clients laud Cohler for his helpful, reliable and diplomatic nature, saying he quickly understands their intentions. Cohler's training includes a BA in art history and an MS in historic preservation and design from Columbia University. On his own since 1990, he comes recommended by more established designers and the trade as a rising star in the industry. He currently has a staff of six, including two senior designers, but clients note that Cohler remains very accessible.

The firm works with a low up-front design fee and a reasonable markup over net for products. Alternatively, it can work on an hourly fee basis when shopping for products. Standard oversight fees are charged on a percentage basis. Cohler gravitates to the best quality the budget will allow, but he is perfectly willing to mix his aesthetic with the clients' existing furniture and new Crate & Barrel items. Known as Mr. Answerman, Cohler has wide-ranging resources and can accommodate many budget levels, remaining value-conscious whatever the price. He recently debuted a substantial couture-inspired line of fabrics at Lee Jofa with a wide range of price points. Professional, businesslike and generous, Cohler has an excellent reputation with past clients, who frequently ask him back. HB Top Designers, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005.

Representative Client Comments:
"Eric is so easy, quick and has so much range. He is as good with his left brain as his right--creative and yet so practical." "When my architect and I were perplexed as to how to treat the walls adjoining the three floors in our apartment, Eric envisioned the solution with just one look." "Eric willingly and lovingly helped design our Christmas decorations last year and never asked for a fee. He did the same for my friend's Rosh Hashanah dinner." "His compositions mixing centuries and continents are unifying and uplifting." "He could even make items purchased at Ethan Allen sing on Park Avenue." "I am so glad that Eric is pursing a career in design. It is in his DNA--this is what he was meant to do in life. It is a joy to see." "I would recommend Eric for anything in design and for nonstructural architectural elements." "Eric is my insurance policy because I know everything he suggests will be correct." "There is no question that Eric's decoration was the reason I was able to sell my house so quickly and profitably."
