Stephen is beyond talented!! With incredible sources and knowledgeable craftsmen, they will find and design they design the most stunning spaces. Hire Milieu, you won't be disappointed!
Stephen furnished my large walk in closet/dressing room with a customized bench. He provided a large range of options and helped me to select a perfectly proportioned bench with gorgeous fabric that completes the space. He had great knowledge of fabric options at a variety of price points. I get complements on the space all of the time.
Modern Millwork Innovations
After working regularly with exceptional designers, it becomes increasingly difficult to be truly impressed. Walking away from this project with Stephen is one of the exceptions. We signed on to build a kitchen for a project he was designing, but it was challenging considering space constraints. The effort he put in to making this kitchen greater than its small area was incredible. By utilizing space typically wasted and adding some style and funk, this is one of my favorite kitchens to watch come together. Project is titled "Single Family Loft".
Steven Gertz and Mileu Design were terrific. Steven worked tirelessly with me in redesigning my home and updating the furniture. He is honest, hard working and dedicated. It was important to me that he listen to me and work with my tastes and not just impose his own (like some designers do)Steven listened, worked with me, brought me options and made sure I was happy. He was especially conscientious about making sure that the furniture was delivered, installed and fit my exact needs. He not just acquired pieces but he custom ordered and designed a beautiful dining table that everyone has complimented. I would definitely recommend Steven Gertz!

We have been working with Stephen for many years. There are very few designers that are as talented and hard working as Stephen. He will do everything possible to make sure his clients are satisfied. He does not impose his own taste, he listens to his clients’ needs and almost always surpasses their expectations.
We have had an excellent working relationship with Stephen for over four years. He is not only conscientious but also quite personable and nice to deal with. His professionalism and attention to detail is top notch and shows in the finished result. The design aesthetic he creates is top of class as is his ability to manage projects and complete on time with little or no issues. We enjoy working with him and highly recommend MILIEU to anyone considering an interior designer.
