What Our Clients Say

Excellent at managing multiple projects at one time. We were working on multiple projects at multiple locations. She was excellent at managing these projects while off site the majority of the time. She delegated assignments to her team allowing them to accomplish the task on their own while maintaining leadership over the project. She is excellent at managing the overall design intent while making sure the project still comes in under budget expectations.

Christine Miller Langemak

Partner, Washington Workplace, Inc.

Over the past 4+ years I have had the opportunity to work very closely with Susan Pniewski on several YMCA projects. Susan has a phenomenal understanding of keeping her clients relevant and current when it comes to design. Susan has a great knowledge of what can best work with the limits of budgets and space. Her work is always timely and accurate spending the extra time needed to ensure a successful client. There is no doubt our YMCA’s continue to get better and Susan’s work is a main component for this. I would highly recommend Susan for any project as long as you want the job done right.

Tom Button

District Vice President, YMCA

Christopher West Interiors assisted Hazen and Sawyer with the interior design of our Virginia Beach office. Susan’s input on color, furniture layout, and creative design elements made an overwhelming task both fun and easy for us! She was the consummate professional – always meeting obligations as promised and always on time for our scheduled meetings. Susan is a creative and experienced designer, and I highly recommend the services of Christopher West Interiors.
