"I have found for over 20 years they have wide ranging knowledge of art and antiques and they manufacture and restore fine furniture to a high standard, Customer service is superior."
"We are extremely pleased with the solid black walnut, Queen Anne period furniture designed and produced to match our antique chairs. The quality, pride of craftsmanship, attention to detail and finish is very evident in the final product. This craftsmanship has produced furniture that will be appreciated for years and will become family heirlooms."
"Our Hartmann & Company experience has been one of utmost satisfactions. We often refer to our renovated Fairwinds home as “the Hartmann House”. Every aspect of our décor inside and out was touched with the “Hartmann” magic. Keep up the good work!"
"It gives us great pleasure to nominate Hartmann and Company for a Sterling Business Award. This company has provided us with an exceptionally high standard of service over the past three years since we moved to British Columbia.
Our initial experience with the company came when we asked Michael Hartmann to consult on color schemes for our newly purchased home. We were immediately impressed by the fact that Michael took the time to listen to our thoughts and to observe the furnishings, art etc. we already had before giving us his suggestions. The results were brilliant! Michael helped turn the original bland color scheme into a vibrant, warm, welcoming palette that exactly reflects our tastes and dreams for our home. Michael’s obvious gifts and originality as a designer are outstanding, and his perceptiveness about our needs-as demonstrated by the success of this first project- led us to ask Hartmann and Company to further work for us: to design and manufacture several pieces of fine cabinetry, to redesign a bathroom, to renovate some of our existing pieces, to lay hardwood flooring and to create window coverings. More recently, Michael designed and supervised the construction of a beautiful, original front entrance portico which greatly enhances the attractiveness of our house and has earned many compliments from visitors and neighbors.
Throughout these projects, we have found Hartmann and Company (Michael, Jewels and Lillie) meticulous about scheduling and costing of the work. When they commit to a project, it is completed on time and at the originally estimated cost. They also ensure very high standards in completed projects by working with people who are excellent at their various crafts (e.g. painters, tile setters, cabinet makers etc.) to bring design to “product”.
As a bonus, all the “workers” they have introduced to our home have been a total pleasure to meet. We cannot state too strongly how much the members of Hartmann and Company have added to the pleasure we now have in our home.
In terms of customer service, the members of Hartmann & Company answer telephone call, questions, and requests in a timely fashion and in such a friendly and helpful way that all such contacts are pleasurable. We also commend the retail setting of Hartmann & Company on Selby Street. It is always a special experience to wander around their store to see what is new and interesting in furnishings and accessories for the home. We have never experienced any pressure to purchase, just attentive, helpful service when we need it. The excellent design sense and creativity of the members of the company are immediately evident in the selection and presentation of items in the store. If we are looking for something a little special, this is the place to go to!
We feel extremely fortunate to have such an exceptional company within easy traveling distance from our home, and highly recommend it for a Sterling Business Award. We believe that Hartmann & Company exemplify the high standards of excellence for which the Sterling Awards are intended."
"Lillie at Hartmann & Company has cheerfully and skillfully helped me transform my furniture and home into my sanctuary. I have been a customer for the past 15 years and am always blown away by the casual and stress-free manner in which she is able to extract from me what I really want even when I thought I didn’t know. It is important to mention that the level of craftsmanship at Hartmann & Company is exquisite."
"I have had many successful experiences with Michael, Lillie and the whole team at Hartmann & Company. From beautifully restored and custom built furniture to effective and tasteful design advice-every transaction has significantly improved my home environment. I think Hartmann & Company is a terrific choice for anyone looking for quality and long term value."
"Hartmann & Company is one of those rare family businesses that still cares! They always provide quality products and fine craftsmanship and that nice personal touch that makes you feel like one of the family. It’s always a pleasure doing business with them."
"We moved from Ontario to our new home in British Columbia and wanted to capture a uniquely West Coast flavor in the décor of our home. We heard of Hartmann & Company by word of mouth from another satisfied person and we initially asked Michael Hartmann to help us with a color consult. Because of his amazing talent for design, color and furniture that quickly became a full interior design renovation contract. Michael and his master craftsmen added an amazing comfort and class to our new home at a very affordable price. He was able to coordinate whatever trade was required for the job at hand which opened up far more choices in what we were able to choose from. We always felt we knew exactly what was going on and that we were in control of the project. We would highly recommend Hartmann & Company to anyone looking for great ideas, excellent service and quality furnishings for their home."
