I am only writing this review because of the 1 star rating on this firm- made my blood boil. While I have never had a home designed by Shelly, I do work in a showroom that he and his staff frequently shop in. He and his staff are, without exception, the most wonderful people to work with (never have I felt like an unappreciated order-taker--they are incredibly professional and kind.)

What's more, those in showrooms have a unique view into how designers work. We see which designers spend significant time looking for precisely the right piece, which think merely "good enough" suffices, which designers overcharge their clients, who is always scrambling last minute, etc etc etc. (Want the scoop on a designer? Walk around River North and talk to salespeople--we have all the dirt, the good and the bad!) I can say without qualification that Handman sits firmly in the top tier of design firms in Chicago. Thoughtful, organized, professional, kind, and most importantly, an excessive allotment of fabulous taste. 1-star reviewer, I must respectfully and entirely disagree with everything in your post.

My husband and I purchased our second home in Tel Aviv, Israel a little over a year ago. We had a very unusual request for a Chicago based designer. We wanted someone who would design our Tel Aviv home utilizing materials, accessories and furnishings from Israel. We selected Shelly Handman of Handman Associates to do the job. He was amazing! He traveled to Tel Aviv in the early stages of the project to investigate what types of materials he could use. We looked at stone, marble, fabrics and furnishings that were all representative of the locality. He made various and many selections during this first trip. Once all of the orders were assembled, he revisited our home in Tel Aviv to have a total installation. We now have a home in Tel Aviv that is unique to our taste in furnishings as well as indicative of the area in which we live. To this day, I don??t really know how he did it, but I am so grateful that he did!

Shelly Handman designed our home in Chicago and we've been thrilled with the results. After finding the perfect site for our vacation home in Palm Springs, the next call was to Shelly. Hopefully he would be able to accomodate our schedules along with our architect and contractor. All was a go and after two years in the making, we just moved in. We've learned it's more fun the second time around! Having already worked together the trust and confidence had been established. This let us venture out to explore more design options and to go out on that proverbial limb. We had much more enjoyment with this design process and it comes across in our home. The successful hunt for odd furnishings and accessories is apparent the moment you step through the door. When Shelly suggested we shop locally for many of our things we thought he meant Chicago. We found that Palm Springs has a weatlh of design sources with more variety and better pricing.

We used to rent a home while vacationing in the desert. Now we have one of our own and no matter which residence we're in at the time we're thrilled to be home.

Building a new home or even refurnishing an existing one is no easy feat. But, with the help of a skilled design team our worries were quickly put to rest. My family renovated our home on the north side of Chicago. Early on in the processes we enlisted the help of interior designers Shelly Handman and Shu-Yi Tsou. I was very impressed with their knowledge and professionalism. They transformed our dated home into beautiful and timeless space. In addition, they accommodated all of our needs and worked around the budget we had set to make sure all of our design requests were fulfilled. Overall, our home renovation was a great success and I am thankful I hired experienced designers like Shelly and Shu-Yi. I strongly recommend their services if you are in the process of renovating your home or even building a new one.

My experience with Handman Associates was nothing but wonderful. The creativity and enthusiasm of the designers, Shelly and Shu-Yi, were apparent throughout the entire process. They renovated my dated Lincoln Park house and turned it into a comfortable space that is warm and full of life. They turned my visions into a reality and my house into a home.

The design process was easy, fun, on-time and within budget. The helpful administrative staff at Handman Associates were a joy to work with and always courteous and thorough.

Shelly and Shu-Yi have the talent and experience to turn any space into an enjoyable environment that is both functional and beautiful. I couldn't recommend Handman Associates more.

My wife and I built a rather large home on Chicago's North Shore. The process would have been a daunting one except for having Handman Associates on our team along with our architects, Cohen-Hacker.
Shelly Handman and Shu-Yi Tsou patiently guided us through hundreds of material, electrical and plumbing selections till we found the ideal ones for the look we were after. As the architectural selections moved into furnishings, we were again overwhelmed at the choices. After Shelly pointed out the positives of the selected furniture floor plans for each room, he and Shu-Yi assembled presentation boards of furnishings and fabrics that allowed us to see how each room was unfolding and leading into the next.

After years of planning and construction, our house is finally completed. It is through the patience, understanding and listening power of Shelly and his team that we are thrilled with the end result. We're actually looking for property across the lake for a weekend retreat and it's comforting to know who our team will once again be.

Shelly Handman, of Handman Associates is a pleasure to work with. He held my hand throughout the entire design process and worked hard to utilize several of my existing items in a brand new way, thereby helping me to manage my costs while creating a brand new look for my home. His firm is caring and warm and willing to talk to me about any aspect of the design process. They called me after each delivery to make sure that every item met my expectations. I couldn't have hoped for any designer better than Shelly and Shu-Yi of Handman Associates. My house looks like a home - MY home!

My house was originally built in 1926 and a new section was added in 1969 so when we decided to do some major renovations, we knew we had a challenge on our hands. Whoever would design the changes would have to blend the old with the new and work with the architect to give us the ultimate look we were seeking. Chris coordinated the architect, the carpenters, tile setters and the finishing workers for three bathrooms, the new marble floor tiles and all the ??finishes? and he handled all in a superb manner; even the painting was integrated in a classy fashion.
The attention given to the bathrooms was especially appreciated; little things like being able to step into the shower easily; the cabinet work; the lighting; the fantastic large mirrors ; the selection of the hardware and the toilets; the shower options ?? rain dome, handheld and regular showers; the hand rails. People visiting us continue to marvel about how classy the bathrooms are!
Thanks to Chris, the results culminated in an overall finished product that blended the old with the new and made us very pleased. Simply put, the remodeled portion blends in such a fashion that it ??belongs? with the rest of the house.
What began with a great deal of apprehension ended with a feeling of complete satisfaction! In retrospect, we wished that we had done the remodeling sooner.
I highly recommend Chris as a ??complete? designer!

Pros: The Best Designer

I just loved working with Handman Associates and especially Chris. The entire team was wonderful. I could not be more pleased with the final look of my home, it is everything I hoped to achieve in working with a professional design studio. Chris was creative and listened when I expressed what I wanted the final interior to look like. My life has been greatly enriched by my beautiful apartment and I feel a sense of pride when people come into my home and remark on the interior design.

Chris Eskra selected the color, furniture, and lay-out of my Manhattan studio. Chris designed the studio to fit my needs, and the needs of my guest using the studio during their visits to the city. My expectations were significantly exceeded.

Getting this project accomplished was quite a feat. Chris Eskra managed the entirety of it with great style, professionalism and accuracy. Even if I was out of town, Chris took the time to make sure every detail was being done correctly - contracter, painters, furniture makers! It could not have been done without his fine eye for detail. He ofered great ideas and stayed within budget. A terrrific experience all-around thanks to Chris and the team at Handman Associates.

I used Handman Asocciates for my design project and it turned out to be the best and most important desicion I made regarding this project. Chris Eskra was my designer - he is charming, intelligent, insightful and talented. Oh yes and extremely patient too. My condo turend out stunning thanks to his advice and extensive expreince. He has excellent taste an listend carefully to what I wanted. He undertood my needs and personality and the final results reflect both. I could have tried to do this on my own, but it would have been a mistake. I now understand the need for design services. Thanks Chris - I am so happy with in my new elegant, relaxed environment.

I am living in my second Chicago condo designed by Chris Eskra and it is wonderful. The perfect blend of elegance, comfort, contemporary, and chic without being over-the-top or so trendy that it's going to have to be redone in a year. A colleague recently asked to use my apartment when I'm away to give a party because of its ambience. Chris also did rooms in my home in Miami Beach and struck just the right note. He is easy to work with, patient, responsive and knows how to bridge the gap for those of us who are not design savvy. I recommend him highly!

I have had a 3 year relationship with Handman Associates. It began with the blueprint phase of a new home that my husband and I were building and continues to this date. I have never worked with any group of people that were so on top of their game. From the meetings at their office to the trips to the Merchandise Mart and other shopping adventures, to their at-home visits, they have been professional, organized, well-informed and fun. Building a home is no easy task for anybody that is involved. Some things will go wrong, but I never felt the stress of any of the things that did not go as smoothly as ithey were intended, nor did I ever see anybody act in a rude manor or lose their cool. What a pleaure the past 3 years have been! Shelly Handman is on the top of my list of recommendations to anybody that wants to hire a firm with class, integrity, excellent taste, and outstanding business eithics.

I have been a client of Handman Associates since 1980. They have helped me remodel, redesign, and totally decorate each home. When I moved, they came to the old home and the new. They looked for what pieces we could still use as well as what we now need to make the new house even more special than the last. Not only is my home magazine perfect, it is also comfortable and inviting. It reflectsour taste, our personalities and the way we want to live. The staff at handman are always pleasant to deal with, efficient and collaborative. With Handman you get a total experience from start to finish. That is why i have stayed so long...and plan to do my next home with them as well!!! They are not only my designers, they are my friends.

Here is a point of view from someone in the trade who works with Handman Associates on a regular basis. We have a lot of fun collaborating on projects. Shelly and his staff are easy going, open minded and completely professional. The staff is responsive to any questions I may have pertaining to the project so that I can facilitate quickly that which needs to be presented to their client and then later ordered. Handman Associates is on my top 12 designers list. Great people with whom to work, great projects in which to be involved and invoices paid promptly.

Many of their clients have been with Handman Associates for a long time and frequently recommend their friends and family members to the firm. Their outstanding work is regularly featured in many design publications. Mr. Handman is active in the Interior Design industry and is warm and delightful man to work with (and work for).

I have been the Design Intern for over a year now and have appreciated every minute of my working experience as I am still in school. From the very start everyone would go out of their way to make sure I was comfortable and understood the tasks that were asked of me. I have been treated as a valued member of the team. Shelly cares about his staff and takes pride in the care and relationships he has with his clients, vendors and salesman. I recommend this firm to anyone that could be a potential client or employee.

I have been a client of Shelly Handman and Handman Associates for 20 years. I have experienced two kitchen renovations, extensive stone and woodwork remodeling, including rehabbing my master bedroom and bath, and living and dining rooms. The level of personal attention and design detail is incredible. Mr. Handman possesses the natural talents of a true artist. He is able to determine the basic needs of a room in minutes. The staff at Handman has always been beyond top-notch and extremely professional, courteous, and helpful. I have always felt valued as a client and their customer service is like that of a concierge at a five-star luxury hotel. Of course, their fees are reflective of this level of design and service. If you are looking for a bargain, this is definitely not the firm for you. But working with them will be absolutely foolproof!

We are a custom manufacturing company that has had the privilege of producing work for the Handman and Associates design team for the last 10 years or so. Aside from the unerring courtesy of the staff with their clients while touring our showroom they provide meticulously detailed documentation of their order details. It certainly has been a pleasure for our production team to work with such consummate professionals. Clearly the success and favorable reputation of H & A is a reflection of the stewardship of a most capable leader in Shelly Handman.

I have had the pleasure of doing business with Mr. Handman for many years, I have always been more than delighted with his artistry. I was suprised to find a negitive comment on such a fine citizen of this community.
It is a fact that he has served several charities that I am involved with , giving both time and money. It is also a fact that he is very well respected for his Kindness to others.
I feel sorry for who ever has found the time to slander such a person, perhaps getting a Life and or a Psychologist could help greatly.

I've had to deal with this designer on a regular basis, and it's not been a pleasant experience. He duplicitous with his clients, only out to make a quick buck. He is indignant and rude to sales clerks, and always trying to work an angle to get additional discounts, and irresponsible about paying for items that he has been invoiced for.
