I have nothing but highest praise for the excellent quality and service rendered by Madonna and Roger of A Sweeter Shade. Workmanship was tops, installation was precise and careful, we dialogued throughout about details, and my suggestions were always followed to the letter. Work proceeded right on schedule, and they came to the house more than once to measure and confirm details. They were always concerned that what they provided was the best, and took pride in their work. They created and installed two complicated historically-shaped valences for me that needed a lot of fussing, and they happily co-operated with me in experimenting with and adjusting the template to come up with just the right contour that I wanted. They also made sheers and reworked some drapes for me. In addition, they speedily re-upholstered to perfection two large armchairs, six dining room chairs, and one miscellaneous chair for me, within a short period of time. This I appreciated so much because I was trying to get everything done quickly within a grand redecorating scheme. The upholstery job was very tricky because of having to align the pattern just so, and position something exactly in the middle of the seat, but it was done exquisitely, and has drawn much admiration from my visitors. I appreciated having honest quotes up front, which were adhered to completely. Extremely reasonable prices, and great follow-up. Thanks for the beautiful work, care and attention! I was pleased with the savvy sense of design (Madonna is also a visual artist, and Roger is a knowledgeable and efficient installer), execution and advice. I was impressed that it is a friendly neighbourhood store; I just discovered them by walking by, and a glowing report by a satisfied neighbour prompted me to follow up. Word of mouth is always great! It's how I mostly operate. I would unhesitatingly highly recommend A Sweeter Shade to anyone!
