I have worked with Guy DiMatteo at Artisan Finishing Services over a period of 20 years, and in my opinion, he is the "jewel in the crown" of finishers in his industry. I have been in the interior design industry myself for over 28 years, and it would be an understatement to say that I am very visceral, and have a discerning eye when it comes to finishes on wood or metal. I know when something is in the category of art---I guess that is why Guy calls his business Artisan. He is, truly an artist. Recently I had to have some very detailed and massive built-in cabinetry finished to match one of the finishes from my furniture company. It was a very complicated layered finish, with subtle metallic in it. It was probably an 18 layer finish. Guy nailed it. My clients were thrilled. It took patience on our part, and Guy made the effort to visit my client's mountain home prior to beginning the process. When he is finishing, he reminded us that he is always thinking about the home in which the piece is going, and the lifestyle of the family that resides in the space, as well as the pre existing components in the room. "Guy gets it" I said to my client. He also did an amazing job on some chairs in my new furniture line called "The A. Meryl Collection" which was a painted, layered finish made to look like a very old antique. Amazing......we were all thrilled. He and I are strong design personalities, but both bright and sensitive enough to have an understanding about the process being tedious, labor intensive, and subject to the interpretation of the "beholder's eye"......this is what makes him so valuable to the best designers, architects, and cabinetmakers in the industry. I feel blessed to have him on our team.
