It has been a great experience working with Rita. We ordered two sets of wardrobes from Downtown Interiors and gave her a design and look we wanted to achieve. Rita is very personable and easy to deal with. She has provided a great service and gives good advice and is always honest, which is not common! The end result is two fantastic runs of wardrobes that look very stylish and exactly fit the brief that we gave initially. I would not hesitate to recommend Rita/Downtown Interiors and in fact, already have.

We would like to thank DOWNTOWN Interiors for their invaluable assistance with converting our building of several offices to residential flats. The expert advice from the firm with regards to the plans drawn up was invaluable and improved the living area's immensely. The standard of workmanship could not be faulted and the finishing first class. The regular updates kept us appraised of what stage they were at and allowed us to smooth out any snagging at the time. Even with the scope of work undertaken the contracts were completed on time, if not before. We will definitely recommend your firm for any future building works.

Alison Harrison - SENIOR TRUST ADMINISTRATOR | HSBC Trustee (C.I.) Ltd.

We have worked with Rita at Downtown Interiors for many years and have recommended her to many of our clients. We have used other designers in the past but can honestly say that Rita is by far the most talented and innovative. Rita is very good at developing an understanding of her clients and producing schemes which are unique to them. We will continue to recommend Downtown Interiors to all our clients in the future.

Jason Goldstone MNAEA, Director - Hanover Residential

I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for our fabulous new kitchen. I know it is not easy to plan and execute a kitchen installation, especially when there are other works being undertaking at the time regarding plasterwork and flooring. But I must say you always returned our calls and when there was a problem regarding the handles of the integrated fridge and freezer you came up with a solution that was both executed and undertaken in a professional manner. My wife and I are absolutely delighted with our new kitchen: The new high gloss doors certainly have made a fantastic difference to both the feel and look of the kitchen adding light and a sense of space. The granite worktops look fantastic and are so easy to keep clean. The pull-out larder unit and Lemans corner carousel unit have certainly made the kitchen much more user friendly. It is a joy to work and eat in our new kitchen now.

This company was engaged by Marie Stopes International to carry out a medical refurbishment project on an office building in St James Street, Canterbury in Kent. The project included design, general specification, and M & E input to ensure the completed Clinic complied with all aspects of Clinical Standards and Governance regulations required in order to obtain registration by the Healthcare Commission. Furthermore they then completed the construction works required for the project which had a contract value of approx £100, 000 plus all professional fees. At all times throughout the project MSI found Downtown Interiors to have a high level of understanding of the technical aspects of the project, they took keen interst in the progress, and completed the build/construction element on time and on budget. Their senior management team remained involved through the whole project and were delightful to deal with, it was both a successful and enjoyable contract in which to be involved. MSI will certainly consider carrying out further projects with Downtown Interiors Ltd when the opportunity arises and would recommend them for medium sized projects of both a residential and commercial nature.

"This is just to say that Rita Chulani did my flat in Dorset House, My flat was completely gutted and Rita personally took me to a lot of shops to choose tiles, lights, bathroom fittings and furniture. We made a lot of trips together. A few of the beading came out in the flat after maybe a year and Rita sent her staff back in to have it sorted. Her team, project management and after-care are wonderful and I recommend Rita to anyone."

Meena Sadarangani

"We were introduced to Rita Chulani and her company Khakhi-Life/Downtown Interiors when our refurbishing project had already started but she stepped in, took over and it saved my life...and the project!! I found her and her colleagues to be reliable, efficient, always available and all that at a very reasonable price. Rita was able to adapt to our budget and did not go over it."

Monica & Gary McConnell

Rita has a strong work ethic, unquestionable honestly and is the most reliable contractor/designer I have experienced. Her team are professional, talented and have a deep respect for `Rita’ that ensures all work is carried out to the highest standards. However it is in the area of "after sales service" that Rita stands her ground. She will follow up on a job and then if anything ever goes wrong, she ensures it is sorted rather than apportioning blame. Rita stands by her work, her team and has a great reputation.

"I have been dealing with Downtown interiors for a number of years now. I first came across this shop when I was looking to fit a built-in wardrobe in my house. They did a very good job for me. I subsequently have purchased a number of furnishing items from them, always happy with the services and prices. Rita, the owner, has a good eye for spotting most recent European trends in furniture and furnishing. I would say that she is on the cutting edge of the industry. She follows Italian and European trends very promptly, it is something rarely found in London in my experience. Just visit their showroom to see it yourself. I am ordering some beautiful feature glass from them now and looking forward to see it fitted in my house. I am sure it will look great!"

O.Pavlova - Belsize Park, London

"I am happy to confirm that the refurbishment contract for the office building in Roger Street WC1 on behalf of clients was completed satisfactorily from initial schedule of works and pricing, strip out and works to completion ready for occupation. Whatever amendments, alterations, extras and discussions with local authorities etc. were required were all carried out efficiently and with the minimum of fuss, resulting in a project of over £300,000 completed to a competent and high standard."

"I really love the kitchen I purchased from Downtown Interiors. The design is exactly what I wanted and the quality of the kitchen units and counter is great. Gary is a gem to work with – very responsive to my queries and addressing any issues that arise."

Robin Brantley - West Hampstead

“My wife and I had been searching for a while to find assistance with the decor and furnishings at our home. When we met Rita at her shop we knew immediately that we had found the right person; she was charming, personable, knowledgeable and very much on our wavelength. We are delighted with the items she has helped us choose and she has been very fair on her pricing. We expect to work closely with Rita on other projects as they arise."/p>

Jacky & Laurence

“I wanted to send my personal testimony of Rita Chulani at Downtown Interiors, whom I took as my Interior Designer. These are times when one wants to maximize their financial resources and yet, have stunning results. Rita has become my trusted friend after she re-modeled my entire duplex Penthouse apartment in East London. I was so impressed (as well as all of our friends & family) that I also asked her to design my second property in southeast London from the ground up! She has the skill of design that made our homes more functional and beautiful, and integrated ideas from me. Her depth of experience and contacts allowed her to create a unique look well below the retail that I would have had to pay. Her ability to really listen and understand our needs was amazing. Her integrity and genuine care meant so much to us, as well as her ability to keep the project running on time and budget. I welcome anyone considering a remodel or building a dream home to contact me personally, overall 10/10 with a gold star."
