What People Are Saying

I have been purchasing furniture and using the design services of The Spotted Frog for two years now and I am very happy with the results.  Having access to high quality furniture, accessories and design services in one store conveniently located  in my neighbourhood of Steveston, has saved me significant time and effort.  Instead of wandering around department stores in Vancouver I was able to find all that I needed locally in one great store. In addition to their wonderful selection of products,  they also have access to a number of custom lines and are happy to assist with the selection of fabrics and finishes suited to the specific needs in our style. Huong is very resourceful and extremely knowledgeable in the areas of interior design and current trends.  Her team takes the time to get to know their customers and makes each purchase a pleasurable experience. I enjoy visiting the store on a regular basis as there is always something new and exciting to see.

Brenda and I were introduced to The Spotted Frog shortly after they opened. Upon entering we were warmly welcomed by staff, which we found out in subsequent visits were in fact Huong and Linda, the owners.  Huong has been in our home on various occasions assisting in the design, furniture and accessory selection phase of some of our renovations.  One of the advantages that has come of dealing with the Spotted Frog is their recommendations concerning purchasing custom design area carpeting.  It was quite surprising to see that it is not significantly more expensive than buying standard size rugs that are either too big or just a little too small.  After taking home various sizes colours and textures from stores throughout the Lower Mainland, having a carpet made to your exacting specifications, texture and colour choice was a real pleasure.  We now have furniture and accessories throughout most of our home from The Spotted Frog and would not hesitate to make them the first choice in shopping for our next piece of furniture, carpet or accessory.  Our experience with Huong, Linda and the staff at The Spotted Frog over the last few years has been nothing but positive and we would not hesitate in recommending them to our friends and business associates.

Huong has transformed my house into a home and made it clear that the design process is really “all about me!”  She patiently analyzed my lifestyle, my needs and my “look” to create a beautiful home that receives tons of compliments and more importantly, that I love every single day.  Although she does challenge me a bit to new ideas, she is always respectful of my overall personality and never imposes a solution or style I am not comfortable with which I really appreciated.

Paul Wong, Richmond, BC

Huong and her team are a rare breed and we have been so impressed with their work that we have used them for six of our investment projects, including several of our personal properties.  Her professionalism and entertaining personality makes the design process fun and unintimidating.  She takes the time to really understand our needs, can beautifully design unique spaces and implements everything on time.  Her creative talent is quite expansive as each of our properties have a very different style, is never duplicated and always complimented on.  For anyone that wants a company that treats you like you’re their number one priority, doesn’t want to make costly mistakes that you regret later and wants a “marriage counsellor” that creates win-win compromises then I would highly recommend The Spotted Frog.

We have used The Spotted Frog’s interior design services to assist us with the renovations of our main residence and our cabin in Whistler.  The staff are professional, knowledgeable and well versed on current trends.  Huong and her team have patiently guided us through the selection and ordering of custom made furniture to ensure it suited our needs and style. We appreciate The Spotted Frog’s comprehensive understanding of design whether we were selecting larger pieces of furniture or accent pieces to complete a room.  The Spotted Frog’s quality furniture, accessories and extraordinary staff have made our renovations a positive experience.

We worked with Huong for a luxury group of four homes in the Kerrisdale neighbourhood.  We wanted a designer that understood the Westcoast style of keeping the charm and grace of the established neighbourhood while keeping the interiors a more contemporary so we selected The Spotted Frog to accentuate the fine features of our high end development.  The Spotted Frog fused the elements together beautifully, enhancing design and architecture with beautiful furniture and décor that was on trend and also inspiring.  Their overall expertise and professional integrity made the venture not only successful but enjoyable as well.

Having just purchased a new condo, downsizing from our family house, I approached Huong and Rachel with a general idea of what I was looking for and no idea where to begin. Within minutes I knew I had made the right decision. Rachel created stunning design concepts and as a team with Huong sourced some amazing pieces of furniture and accessories. From suggesting colour palettes through to working daily with the contractor I felt fully supported and confident every step of the way. At times Rachel had to hold my hand as she encouraged me to explore new ideas, but without a doubt I trusted her completely! The project was completed on time and on budget. The end result was beyond my wildest dreams. My family and I wake up each morning surrounded by peace tranquility and beauty. We continually receive compliments on our new home and are quick to credit the outstanding support we received from the gals at Spotted Frog!!!!

Upon downsizing from a 2700 sq.ft. home to a new build 1200 sq.ft. condominium, we were seeking help in designing this space. We found the task somewhat overwhelming therefore a designer was important to us. Rachael Smith of Spotted Frog helped us immensely in deriving a comprehensive plan. She was very helpful in offering various themes and visions that we should consider along with both our visions. Her flair for design gave us some interesting decisions to make. To tie it altogether was necessary, and her guidance and professionalism helped us achieve that. Budgets and deadlines were monitored so that we did not go off the beaten track. Her attention to detail was very impressive as was the time frame for all the furniture deliveries. We all want to thank Houng for her contribution and support through the entire process.

Huong has the ability to know what her clients want even before they do. Her exceptional attention to detail and terrific communication skills allows her clients to be confident that the finished product will be what they asked for. We worked with her on our living room and dining room. We would have no hesitation in hiring her again for our next project. I would highly recommend her and her team to anyone.

We have dealt with Huong and the staff at The Spotted Frog for some years and when we renovated our home it was a natural choice to go to the professionals. With the Spotted Frog we get good sound advice, exceptional products and service at what we believe is affordable pricing. We have been very pleased with the advice we received and the ability Huong has to lead you away from decisions that you would be sorry you made and focus you on the right way to go. When we remodeled our living room and dining room the Spotted Frog was able to give us a design layout that worked very well for an awkward space and provide furniture choices that will serve our needs for the years ahead. Huong has also put her creative influences on a number of other spaces throughout our home

We enjoyed working with Huong on all levels of our project – from choosing the paint for the inside and outside of our house to furnishing our front room, living/dining room, and our daughters bedroom. Huong was very intuitive on incorporating the style we envisioned for our home and successfully guided us through the entire process.

For example, we would of never picked the flooring for our gamesroom without Huong’s vision – a gorgeous gray. Our furniture (shown in the attached picture) proved to be a perfect for our family and entertaining needs. We received great service and communication was excellent.

Going forward, we continue to work with Huong on various upcoming renovations, such as redesigning our kitchen island and lighting.

We used the Spotted Frog’s services to decorate our condo. We were moving from a house to a condo, so space and storage were an issue. Huong and Rachael carefully listened to our list of needs for our space and worked with us to come up with the right look for our home. We are extremely happy with the results. Huong and Rachael are fun and friendly to work with, and very helpful.

Many times items were proposed that at first I wasn’t sure about…but when I saw them in our home, I LOVED them…so definitely trust that they know what is best for your place because they do :)

The furniture quality and design is lovely. Drawers and cupboards move easily, and the pieces are all custom made to fit with our space and design.

Huong always made sure we were happy and guaranteed the furniture, carpets, etc. I would highly recommend them for any design or home renovation. They saved us money (and arguments) by helping us decide what we needed and also by helping us find the perfect pieces.
