“Demco Interiors were very flexible. They made adjustments when needed and often presented multiple options to choose from. In our discussions, both of us learned new things that made each other better. It was a real collaborative process that resulted in a lasting partnership.”

“We were very pleased with the finished project. The designer listened closely to everything we said and suggested ideas we would never have considered on our own. One of the results is a space that is still considered one of the best features of the library.”

“We knew if we were going to renovate the learning, we had to renovate the space. It’s been transformative. Kids walk in and you can see how motivated they are.”
