Adler Interior Design
2434 Atlantic Blvd, Jacksonville, FL 32207
Stay away! We have finally purged the bad juju from our home. This experience has opened our eyes to spotting a rip-off artist and a phony. We feel completely violated, and have had a really hard time moving on from the emotional trauma this gas caused. Ex. Of one table: Retail cost 900.00/Adler charged us 2,129.00. We’ve worked with designers to research most of the furniture that was brought into our home. Every single piece that we’ve been able to locate had an up charge beyond reasonable. Adler removed labels and put his own labels on furniture. I’ve spoke with past employees whom admitted to removing original labels and adding Adler labels....”made in the USA”. This is BS. Some of the furniture that we received was old stock from their warehouse. Furniture from their warehouse is dumped on naive clients like myself, and they pass it as “new” custom furniture. It’s not custom if the client isn’t getting exactly what they requested. So horrific! All of it! We are starting anew, but not without emotional stress and a huge financial loss. A lesson learned for sure. We hired Adler to do a whole house renovation as well as interior design. “Beach Chic” was our request. LOL!!! Several design elements I verbally told Adler I did not want: no nailheads, no gold, no mahogany, no polyester, no rope or fringe, no pouffs. I verbally told Adler I wanted: Slipcovers, organic, cottons, linens, beach chic, casual, child friendly. For starters not one piece of furniture was slipcover. Instead we got upholstered furniture with not one but two different fabrics. Oh, and the drapes match the furniture that have two different fabrics spliced together. Very busy and so dated. I asked for white linen flowy drapes, not polyester fleur de lis next to graphics. As you can see from these pics, he did not adhere to these requests. He did it his way. His employees on the construction side are paid under the table, not legal, and are not licensed or insured.
Adler did a partial renovation job for me at the beach. He and his staff did not listen to our requests and did "what he thought" was best. The job was rushed and unprofessional. He seemed more interested in random messages popping up on his phone rather than listening to us - the customer paying the bill! I ended up hiring another designer to correct his work. He took his personality into consideration without considering my thoughts. Do your research! Adler and his team are not worth the time or money!
