Colleen Malek Designs delivers!

She listened carefully to our needs, helped us to think things through in ways we wouldn't have and added her own refinement to the mix. Colleen Malek is warm and very personable. As a designer she is the best in town!. She is able to forecast paint color, her design is timeless! An excellent place to go for everything decorative! Friendly staff who are always willing to help! Delivery was immediate and service was offered with a smile. I will send all my friends and relatives there.

First Review


Furniture purchase from an interior designer

In December 2007, we ordered furniture from Colleen Malek of Malek Design. When the furniture finally arrived (months after it was expected), it was poor-quality knock-off furniture, not at all the high-quality we had seen in the store, or what we had been promised.

We tried for months to resolve it informally, without success, and finally had to go to binding arbitration through the Better Business Bureau. The arbitrator agreed with us that the furniture was of poor quality and ordered Malek to replace the furniture. Malek is now well beyond the April 2009 delivery deadline date and, apparently, does not intend to replace the furniture--which means we have lost close to $10,000.

We now know others who have had similar bad experiences with Colleen Malek. A few have filed their own complaints with the BBB. Although the BBB has posted information regarding the various unresolved complaints against Malek Design and has now given the company an "F" rating, we fear that Malek will start a new design firm, with a new name, and will find a new crop of victims. Be warned: We would never recommend Colleen Malek or Malek Design for any interior design work.
