We've worked with Dennis on multiple projects - a Back Bay condo, a home in Newton, and a second home in Nantucket - over a span of 15 years. He is a tremendously gifted designer with a wonderful eye and an ability to listen carefully and develop ideas that reflect your tastes and are appropriate to the context (e.g. newlywed condo in the city vs. a home for a young family). He has his fingers on the pulse of what's available from leading vendors but is also quite talented at developing original designs; our bedroom furniture, two couches, several rugs, and a kids table with Warhol-inspired painted flowers are all among our collection of original, custom Dennis Duffy creations. Dennis doesn't constrain his initial ideation process with what things cost - and we have some very expensive bar stools that we fell in love with to prove it - but he will also work toward a budget if asked. We gave him a fixed budget for a new 6k foot home on Nantucket - comprised of hundreds of items - Dennis managed a detailed spreadsheet in designing the entire space and was the only partner we worked with in the process who actually hit their budget.

Dennis is a truly gifted designer and a great guy and we highly recommend him!
