"Michael has helped us achieve a unique look in terms of color, finishes and lighting for several of our professional practices and corporate office. He also was the lead designer for developing a new optical display concept that combined a well lit visual presentation for eyewear with under stock storage capacity. This collaborative effort has yielded a differentiated office that stands out from the typical practices and stores that are common to the industry."

Bob Brodney, President, Eye Care Associates

"I have worked with Michael Steiner on five restaurant and three retail store projects over the years. What a pleasure he is!

Besides having an innate sense of space, being wildly creative, knowing the right people and sources, Michael is a listener. Instead of telling you what you want, he listens to your ideas and needs, and hears your vision. He then makes suggestions and guides you to an end product that is far better than you ever envisioned.

Instead of being tedious, the journey from your first appointment to the doors opening to the public is such fun. Michael rocks!"

"To sit-in on a presentation by Michael Steiner is a real treat. His experience and resources spill out onto the table with solution-solving advice and suggestions. The effort of his team is reflected in the broad range of options that help address the most difficult of situations. I take note of his avoidance of pitfalls only to be explained by his years of sound and structured understanding of his profession."

John Kufrin, Kufrin Cabinetry & Remodeling

"We have utilized Steiner Design Interiors on two major renovation projects in our home. It has been a joy to collaborate with a firm that seeks to assist me in discovering my own unique design style--and seeing that design carried room to room in a way I could never envision.

From the largest project to the smallest decision, Michael & his team make themselves available whenever I have a need--from helping me design an entirely new kitchen to helping me pick out just the right pillow."

Michael and Tal Mangum

"Words cannot express how grateful I am that you have given so much of your time to the Executive Mansion and the Andrew London house. I am sincerely appreciative of your efforts and talents that you willingly shared with us in the design of many of the rooms in both homes.

I commend you personally for an outstanding job with the furniture, drapes, and all the "little extras" you provided. Your expertise helped us to expedite and finalize numerous decisions that normally would still be in the decision-making process."

Mary P. Easley, State of NC, First Lady

"My business of architectural photography has provided me with some insight into the skills of individual designers. Michael Steiner is high on my list. His capabilities with composition, color, materials, and accessories are strong. It makes my job a lot easier when I'm asked to photograph a space that is well designed.

I've enjoyed working with Michael for over ten years because of his business manner and his desire to make every aspect of his work meet his high standards. I recommend Steiner Design Interiors highly for both residential and commercial projects."

Jerry Blow, Photographer

"I am working with Michael at my home as well as our business, Rosie's Plate. He and his staff are such a pleasure to work with. They really listen and welcome your ideas so that they can create your vision. Steiner Design Interiors appreciates you as an important part of the design process.

Michael has a unique ability to come up with wonderful ideas that are not only beautiful, but also practical and very functional."

Rose Waring, Rosie’s Plate & Residential Client

"In working with Michael, I was able to conceptually describe what I wanted and let him choose the options that would work for the environment and me. I travel a lot and was able to work with Michael and his team, to accomplish what I wanted in my home, with a unique look and feel that fits my style. I am very pleased with all the results!!"

"…With an aggressive schedule, we simply had to find a designer that was results driven and most importantly, asked all the right questions that I did not know to ask…What I appreciated most about working with Michael was his professionalism and courtesy-he is talented, fair-minded and honest, simply a wonderful partner in any design project…"
