What our Clients have to say about our work!
"I've engaged TZS Design to be our design firm on five projects. All of the projects have been different in scope and design spanning from residential to commercial. I could not give a higher regard to Tom Spanier and the entire staff working at TZS Design. Tom is what I call an “A” player, always there when you need him, extremely diligent and a steadfast problem solver. When you choose Tom the advantages over his contemporaries will become clear from your first meetings. His ability to blend creative and technical expertise into a tangible package will allow you to fulfill all of your craziest design concepts. His encyclopedic memory, attention to detail and presentation skills are unmatched from other boutique firms. Presentation drawings, construction drawings, CAD layouts, 3D renderings and his overall awareness and understanding of space make this possible. Their mastery of this dance between technical knowledge and creative design puts TZS Design in a league of their own.” Mark H.
“We have found TZS Design (Tom & his team) to be an excellent interior design firm. Their thoroughness and attention to detail is unbelievable. Tom was always accessible via e-mail, text, and phone. Tom's response time was always short (never longer than hours, usually immediately). Tom was always available to discuss and resolve whatever the presenting issue was. Tom was flexible but yet firm in his concept and/or theme of our project. I often would tell him he needed to save us from ourselves. We have always decorated in a traditional manner and with this project we went contemporary. TZS Design extracted all of our desires, wants, dreams, and functionality. Tom would go shopping with us and was always able to represent us (the owners) to any objections that might have arisen from the General Contractor and subs. Tom and his team helped tremendously to make the excruciating pain of construction much more bearable to pleasant and even exciting! Yes, we would recommend TZS Design with our highest accolades.” John & Nancy B.
“We hired TZS Design after a thorough vetting process. Tom and his team were easy to get along with and was able to work with our schedule and within our budget. The work was to redesign the interior of our 4 rooms and paint the entire house. This included selection of colors and drapery, a custom entertainment center and redesign of the master bedroom and office. This is the first time we had taken on such a large project and we had several questions. Tom was patient and detailed in his responses. The painters that he used were excellent in talent and in integrity. The designs were intricate and the workers detail oriented. I will recommend TZS to anyone looking for a flexible design solution by true professionals.” Herman & Melanie P.
“We are so glad we found TZS Design to take on our office renovation project and love the end result. His ability to really understand our needs and provide a multitude of ideas and unique but tasteful designs while staying within our budget was truly impressive. Tom's design knowledge goes beyond nice furniture and color schemes. He was able to conjure up a solution for every odd project that we sent his way. His organization and attention to every small detail stood out the most. He spent a significant amount of time on site/face-to-face, his follow up was prompt, and he always made time on a very busy schedule. Tom's enthusiasm and passion for his work is what truly makes him the best of the best. I HIGHLY recommend TZS Design for almost ANY design project.” Kari F.
"I had the pleasure of working with Tom and his staff in creating a modern yet comfortable aesthetic for my home. I was delighted with the design process and beautiful outcome. His professional experience is well-rounded and he was able to consult on various related issues outside the scope of our engagement. Tom's communication style is highly effective; he asks the right questions, listens carefully and follows through with recommendations that hit the mark. His process is iterative, and although he has plenty of ideas, he is able to balance his creativity with the client's practical concerns for things like function and budget. He worked diligently to make sure I was happy with the decisions we made. Tom's professionalism truly stands out; he is prompt, friendly and meets his commitments. In the end he saved me time and money, and the outcome exceeded my expectations. I have no hesitation in recommending Tom Spanier to anyone with interior design needs.” Michelle & Filipe A.
"I was fortunate to meet Tom at the time we began our search for a designer. Tom was one of five designers asked to make presentations to our design committee, board of directors, and management. We were blown away by his vision of the lobby. It did not take long for Tom to be chosen as our designer. Throughout the project Tom showed an incredible attention to detail and the ability to assist me with cost controls. He was there whenever I needed help on unforeseen construction problems. This was invaluable to me and helped keep the project on schedule. Tom absolutely hit a home run on our lobby renovation project. I have never experienced such a high percentage of resident satisfaction on a project. Somehow Tom was able to make over three hundred people with various decorating opinions happy. For all reasons mentioned above I cannot recommend anyone higher than Tom Spanier.” Ted Haralson (Property Manager, Sudler Property Management)
"I had the pleasure of working with Tom to redesign one of our luxurious single family homes. He did a fantastic job working around the existing design and came up with creative ideas to make the home custom and unique. The results were amazing and I would not hesitate to work with him again in our future projects. Tom is well organized, professional, talented, and detailed. He was mindful of our budget and project timeline and was able to stay within both. His enthusiasm and passion about his work is evident in the intricate details of his design. I would highly recommend Tom to anyone looking for interior design work.” Mari C. (Corona Real Estate Investments)
"We worked with TZS Design to design a state-of-the-art dental office in Schaumburg that came in on time and on budget. Tom was with us every step of the way to make sure we got the design and look we were after. We never had to wait for a reply to an email or phone call and he anticipated many problems in the design that we were able to correct before we started construction. He knows his trade inside and out and he can give detailed advice about colors, lighting, and materials that only years of experience and dedication can provide. The results speak for themselves: the new office is a hit and EVERY patient comments on how nice it looks. I’ve worked with hundreds of vendors in the past ten years or so and I must say the follow-through, professionalism, and attention to detail Tom Spanier provides his clients is rare to find from any business. I look forward to working with Tom again in the future and I highly recommend him for anyone looking for a design professional for their project.” Dr. Morris
“Tom Spanier and the entire TZS team is a phenomenal interior designer. We hired them to provide basic design and consulting services to furnish our loft-style office. He was very easy to talk to and worked within our budget. He didn't push any agenda, but rather worked with our goals. He is efficient in his work, but generates top quality work product. We intend to hire him when we move to our next offices and have a major project.” Suyash A.
“TZS Design’s scope of work was to provide all interior details for the 3 bathrooms in the house being renovated, which later expanded as we were so impressed with his abilities to bring things together yet keep their individual character intact. His details were impeccable to the point that I was able to pretty much post the drawings in the room and let the contractors perform their work with little to no input from myself (which is next to impossible as I am a control freak). From dimensions to specifications on the paint - nothing was missed and the most amazing thing of all is that he was able to maintain control of his design and work with my wife and I together which is not an easy task in of itself. Very pleased to the point that I refer him to everyone seeking services as well as continue to use him myself.” Jeff & Donna K.
"I am pleased to recommend Tom Spanier (and TZS Design) to anyone considering renovating or redecorating their home or place of business. Tom has an impeccable sense of style, and we learned to trust and rely upon him for design decisions because his recommendations proved to be spot-on time after time. Tom was able to listen to our nuanced visions for two different rooms, and execute upon those concepts perfectly, while still maintaining his own style and flavor. We have the "wow" experience we asked for, and are very pleased with how our rooms turned out." Mark A.
“I've had the pleasure of working with TZS Design in two different projects. He did a fantastic job working around the existing style of the homes and came up with creative ideas to enhance and update the design. The results were amazing and I would not hesitate to work with him again. Tom is well organized, professional, talented, and detailed. He was mindful of our budget and project timeline and was able to stay within both. His enthusiasm and passion about his work is evident in the intricate details of his design. I would highly recommend Tom and TZS Design to anyone looking for interior design work.” Mari C.
“Tom and his staff are consummate professionals. I have had the pleasure of working for TZS Design on many occasions, as well as hiring them for my own company's projects. I highly recommend TZS without any reservation. TZS Design is accurate in their assessments of the scale and cost of their projects and all work is done with care and precision. He chooses and manages his sub-contractors well, making sure they understand the importance of scheduling as well as quality. Good work takes time to complete and Tom and his team definitely gives 100% to all of his projects.” Chris C.
“Tom Spanier and his company, TZS Design work miracles in their own way. Tom's creativity linked with his well-honed skills of design, drafting and physical implementation take a project from beginning to end seamlessly but never forgetting the wishes and goals of his client. I will hire TZS again and again because of his care for the work completed, straight ahead thinking and a product that all involved can take pride in.” Ted S.
"Tom is a very creative designer and addition to any team. I had the pleasure of working with Tom on several projects. These had incredible deadlines and were highly detailed. Tom was able to take the lead on the entire task that was assigned to him. I would work with Tom again and recommend him on any project.” Bob B.
"Tom is one of the most thoughtful and versatile designers I've seen. He can not only create the right space for a client but communicate it with his natural artistic abilities. The combination of vision and natural artistic skill is rare and both can be found in Tom Spanier.” Mark O.
"Tom worked with my husband and I on our home renovation. He really listened to our ideas, enhanced the plans, worked out the details, and assisted us in creating a truly beautiful home that we love!! I would highly recommend Tom for any design project.” Christine M.
"Thank you so much for the great design and professional installation of our break room make over. You have successfully married our dual function goal of having one room being both an employee break room and sales office. I would highly recommend you to anyone seeking professional interior design service.” Dr. Larry K.
