My experience with Irena is both personal and professional. Her superb taste level and understanding of my concept made the experience fun not to mention a stellar home as a result! Irena also assists me with my clients by staging their homes prior to my listing them. Her close attention to detail, hard work and follow up is extraordinary. I highly recommend her!

“I have never worked with a designer, who had so much interest in who I am , and what mood I want to create. Her interior design doesn’t only look good, it feels good. It feels like you want to feel in your space, restorative or invigorating. Irena has a sixth sense for her clients and she can deliver to them the mood, the spirit, the energetics to match their well-being and happiness. She is the only interior designer I know, that works from both the inside of your psyche to delight your eyes and your mood. Working with her is a treat and she is very gifted in what she creates for all kinds of people in all kinds of situations. You are in for a treat.”
“Irena Feldman is one of the best interior designers in the city of Chicago and has assisted us with three homes in the past seven years. She has three outstanding attributes: (1) a sensitivity and responsiveness to the desires and needs of her customers, (2) attention to value always seeking the best price for the product and (3) she is a true artist bringing empty space to life in a most sophisticated and professional manner. I would never ever consider using anyone other than Irena for beautifying my living space.”

Several years ago, we purchased and remodeled our condo apartment; and after living there for about 2 years, we decided that we needed to do some cosmetic, decorating updates to further pull out apartment together. We received a recommendation to work with Irena from a valued real estate representative whom we knew. Irena wasted no time in coming in, analyzing and understanding our lifestyle, and how we use the various rooms in our home. She then presented us with recommendations for furniture layout (replacing some pieces of furniture, but also using some of our existing furniture). She understood our price-point range and she began to make recommendations within those ranges. She took us to furniture and wall covering showrooms around the city. She helped us to distill our options to just a few best choices for each decorating area, e.g., room colors and paint, wallpapers, rugs, chest and consoles, media units, dining room tables, lighting and chandeliers and artwork. Irena is a very hard-working, creative and enjoyable person to work with, in addition to being responsible to any issues that needed resolution. We are extremely pleased with the results, and we have had continual compliments from those who come to visit – most commenting on the uniqueness and freshness of our decorations and design.

“When I had purchased my condo in downtown Chicago, I had mentioned to my realtor I was going to do some remodeling etc., and had asked her if she knew an interior decorator that may be able to help me with my remodeling. She had recommended Irena and that is when some good things began to happen with my condo. Irena absolutely did a wonderful job on my project. She selected carpet, wood floor, and paint that blended with my furniture, she has a great eye for color coordination. Irena also had the contacts that she had worked with in the past on other projects to do the work and meet deadlines before moving into my condo. There were numerous occasions where she served as the contact for me while I was working, which was so helpful so she may people doing the work. She also helped in purchasing additional furniture and a couple pictures to finalize the project. I have had so many compliments about my place it has made me proud of my investment, my place turned out to be beautiful. Irena is a very gifted interior decorator and an enjoyable reliable person, I strongly recommend her for one of your projects, she is great!”

“As an owner and curator of two art galleries, former 310 at the Fine Arts Building, and the Millennium Fine art Gallery located at the Willoughby tower in Chicago, I have worked with interior designer Irena Feldman several times. Her job redesigning both galleries has been outstanding. Two aspects impressed me about her work: (1) The way she places the art pieces is an art by itself; (2) She also works very well across cultures due to her global experience. She has demonstrated that talent often, since my galleries have been an art reflection of the UN. All artists adore her because she works in an integrated fashion, giving life to their art pieces. Art-lovers comment saying that Irena’s visual displays have a magical touch! I agree totally.”
