"Having worked on several very high end projects with Susan and her staff, I can say with no hesitation that they are a solid, very professional outfit, and a real pleasure to deal with. Susan has amazing taste, is very decisive and thorough, yet reasonable when issues come up with availability, integration or any of the thousands of things that can come up during the course of a project. She is extremely good with her clients, and makes sure that they are well cared for and happy with the outcome. I have a great deal of respect for her as a professional, business owner and, of course as a designer. All of her staff: Leanne, Andrea, Virginia, Whitney and Jerry are exceptionally great to deal with, as well. They are professional, responsive, really good at what they do, and I can honestly say I enjoy interacting with them. Every job has its own learning curve and its own challenges. Every job is a new opportunity to create something memorable and unique. I look forward to all of that with this group, every time. It's a pleasure and an honor to work with them, and produce some stunning results with a great team. I look forward to doing more work with them, and would highly recommend them to anyone who wants the top level of design, client relationship, execution and satisfaction with the end result. If there were more than five stars available I would use them. I wish them the best success...but they make their own, regardless."
-Scott Lipp, Boca Raton, FL
"Susan and her team have been working with my family for more than 5 years. We have done 2 homes with them. They are above and beyond professional. They work with the best contractors and sub-contractors. I have never been disappointed with their timing or outcome. When I walk into my home it makes me smile-and my guests love what they see. As the next project comes up we will work with Susan and her team in a heart beat."
"My husband and I really weren't sure what we wanted. We basically gave
our house to her for almost a year, and she transformed it."
Gorman, Boca Raton, FL
"[The unveiling] was literally like walking into a dream. We'd seen all
the fabric and everything, but when we saw it in person in the condo, it
was so much more than anything we would've expected. I consider Susan a
friend. If I was doing a house in Egypt, I would have her do it with me.
If I had to do a house now that I wouldn't be able to see for two years,
I would trust her with it. She and her staff are intelligent, and they
know what they're doing. I hated to see the project end."
Sunny Isles Beach, FL
"We have pieces of furniture that belonged to my husband's grandparents,
and other people tried to convince us that some of our stuff wouldn't
work in the home, but Susan said, 'Tell me what you love and I'll make
it work.' She wasn't looking to clean everything out and start over; she
worked with a lot of what we had and enhanced it with newer pieces. It
made the house very eclectic."
-Elise Udelson, Miami Beach, FL
"I have a tremendous amount of respect for her level of creativity, her
attention to detail, how organized and efficient she is, and how
respectful of time-both of others and her own-she is. If I were to
purchase another home, I would, without a doubt, use Susan again. No one
-Elise Udelson, Miami Beach, FL
"[The process] was unbelievable. Every single time we would walk in
during the process, there was something new and different in the
house-and we just loved it. Susan did such a wonderful job and really
listened to what we needed. It turned out better than we could have
anticipated. There isn't a day that goes by where we don't walk into
this house and say to each other, 'I love every single thing about it.'"
-Ellyn Penn, Boca Raton, FL
"[Susan] made my life easy. Her systems work...there was never a moment
of tension or unhappiness. If there was a problem, she solved it.
Probably the greatest compliment I can tell her is that my designer from
Philly came down to Florida, and I was so afraid that she would be
offended that I had not asked her to decorate my house down here. But
she just walked in and said, 'If I lived down here, I would use your
designer." She just loved Susan's work."

WHAT A DIFFERENCE A PROFESSIONAL MAKES
By Susan Lachance
Susan Lachance Interior Design, Inc.
Although it might seem to be just a matter of personal taste, practicing interior design is not just simply knowing how to match colors and fabrics and how to best arrange furniture. An interior designer is a professional who translates the needs and tastes of their client into a well-coordinated, attractive, comfortable, and functional environment. It is the designer's job to see that the environment satisfies their client, is within the client's budget, and provides good quality and value. To accomplish this a professional must approach an environment as a professional.
First the designer must be the researcher, getting to know not only the space, but how many people will use the space, what the needs and tastes of those people are, and how those needs are projected to change over the next few years.
Next, the designer thinks of all elements together-walls, floors, ceilings, lighting, and furnishings. To make them a cohesive whole, the designer must draw upon years of training and exposure to exciting interiors, as well as a thorough knowledge of the market. Knowing what products are available is terribly important, for no matter how great a plan might be, if the products don't exist at a price the client can afford, the design won't get off the drawing board. And product knowledge is more than finding the right look, it's also understanding the appropriateness of a product for a specific use.
Unlike salespeople, who are usually promoting a particular product, the designer's advice is unbiased.
Finally, a professional design firm is a business which can offer the client advantages not available to the individual consumer. Because design firms deal on a regular basis with showrooms, craftsmen and other sources, they enjoy a certain clout that makes it possible to request custom detailing, special finishes, and quick delivery schedules.
Planning with a skilled professional means getting an interior design that's tailored to your needs with products of the best quality and value your budget will allow. Planning with a professional means a professional approach with professional results.
