Ania Stempi gives great care to the needs of her clients and without exception, they constitute the central focus of all her projects. Each design represents a striving to create the perfect fit as well as an ongoing evolution around the patron’s taste and lifestyle. Ania is noted for her skill at bringing upscale design to the real world homes of busy families, active children, and unbounded pets. Homes in New York City often call for space-saving innovations, a challenge of particular interest to Ms. Stempi. She has designed an extensive portfolio of custom site-specific furniture and has also created her own line at Scott Jordan crafted of specialty woods.
In addition to her eye for artistic detail, Ms Stempi can be counted on to bring value and accountability to each project. Her good humor and upbeat attitude guarantee a delightful and transparent process. From initial concept to final installation, she lends a watchful, uncompromising eye.
Ania Stempi is a graduate of Parsons School of Design and has worked in Poland, the Netherlands, Japan and the United States.
A joy to work with!
I am a general contractor who has worked with Ania on a number of projects. She's a joy to work with. She maintains very high standards in the work that she turns out for clients without ever being disrespectful or putting excessive demands on the contractors who physically execute the work. She's gracious and fair, and even very considerate, with all the players in the project, from clients to crew to suppliers. And she brings a distinct contemporaneity and freshness to all her designs, even those within the sphere of very traditional style. Ania articulates a very wide range of architectural and design sensibility, so her projects vary widely in terms of style - she's always focused on pleasing clients, while maintaining clear integrity as an artist. With ample talent and skill for problem-solving, negotiation, creative solutions of many kinds, Ania sets a tone for successful projects and is always very careful but also realistic about clients' priorities, including time and money. She's a real pro. Here's a couple of snapshots from a recent project:
I have known Ania Stempi since she came to work with me at my fledgling architectural firm as an interior designer and draftsperson. Her assistance and initiative in that position was indispensable. She is a person of the highest integrity and loyalty with the tenacity to get the job done. Her knowledge of design, creativity, color sense and attention to detail were a great asset. Since leaving my firm, after several years, to open her own practice, it has been my pleasure to continue to work along side her as colleagues. Together, we continue to create the most stylish, elegant and comfortable residences for our clients on time and within budget!
No detail is too small for her
It's been such a pleasure to work with Ania Stempi over the years. She has designed two of my apartments and I've been thrilled with the results of both, plus every visitor I have says that the place looks incredible. Her aesthetic is polished and refined but warm and livable. Not an easy balance to strike. She is professional and dedicated. No detail is too small for her to consider and make perfect. I would recommend her unreservedly.
Impeccable design sensibilities
Ania Stempi is a consummate professional with impeccable design sensibilities. I worked with her on a very large and complex high-end project and found her to be thorough, dedicated and communicative every step of the way. She presents a fully hatched vision for how the space should be, but she was always willing to work within our limitations, whether that meant gracefully incorporating an existing piece or presenting several options at different price points. And we receive endless compliments on the design of the apartment from visitors! It's wonderful to get such great feedback, but it really just confirms what we already knew: Ania is an expert at creating a distinctive, luxurious, and inviting space.
Infinite knowledge in the field of design
Design development, drafting services, and space management. Ania was a great pleasure to work with. She has infinite knowledge in the field of design. She was highly professional for all services rendered, and a sheer delight to work with. I would highly recommend her services to anyone!
Great sense of colors
Attentive. Great sense of colors. Detailed minded. Creative. A pleasure to work with as she always tried to understand my needs and desires and work with my ideas, without imposing hers. I would definitely work again with her.
It was a pleasure working with the interior designer Ania Stempi. From the start of the project in my Upper West Side brownstone apartment she carefully listened to what I wanted to do and gently guided me to various solutions…always mindful of my budget. For the bedroom we selected items from Scott Jordan Furniture in Soho whose workshop is located in Brooklyn. A real plus is that Ania is also a furniture designer and she had the night tables and TV stand made to my specs. For the living room she suggested a variety of tasteful choices: a rug from Restoration Hardware, swivel chairs from Ligne Roset, the couch from American Leather, etc. She is very patient, resourceful and enjoyable to work with.
I think Ania is a great designer to work with. She doesn't impose her ideas but works with you and helps you to develop your own ideas in combination with her knowledge and expertise in the area of design. I think everything in my apartment she's helped me with looks terrific and she really transformed the apartment into a warm and inviting space to live in and entertain. I'm really glad I had the luck to find Ania and had the opportunity to work with her.
Ania Stempi is a wonderful designer and we have filled our home with her beautiful furniture designs!!! We have her work in our office and our master bedroom!
