Client Testimonials

At Metropolis Design Group we never lose sight of the most important priority on every job…our customers! Lasting relationships are the lifeline of our company.


“I have worked with Metropolis Design Group on two occasions–both with my 1924 family home in Tangletown in South Minneapolis and with my “empty-nest” modern condo on the river downtown. I loved working with Laura both times and highly recommend her. She is fun, kind, smart and great to be around and brings a wide variety of skills and a depth of knowledge that dramatically increases what is possible. She can easily access whatever resources (both people and materials) are needed. She has great ideas to extend a budget, a wonderful eye for color and texture. With both my homes, she helped create a sophisticated and wonderfully comfortable background for my life. I look forward to working with her again!”

“I am very impressed with the work of Metropolis Design Group. Laura is a knowledgeable, talented, imaginative professional who is absolutely committed to her clients. She worked very hard to make sure that she understood our needs and our budget; her design suggestions were the result of her really listening to our vision for our home.  I will absolutely call her for my next design job.”

“I located Metropolis Design Group without any previous references and I have been extremely happy with her service. I have attempted to work with a decorator/consultant in the past on several occasions without success. I find her to be very client-centric, pleasant, and responsive. Her follow thru is excellent and assistance in selection of materials is efficient and very helpful. She has professional contacts and service providers that are high quality and responsive as well. I would recommend her highly.”

“Laura consistently produces high quality work within reasonable budgets (when necessary), listens carefully to her clients requests and desires, and has an amazing stable of sub-contractors and artisans that create unique approaches to solving design challenges.”

“Everyone Laura suggested was professional, responsive and reliable. Laura’s great eye helped me with a number of important decisions, in particular my paint color palette. I never would have achieved the harmony I was looking for without her. She is an excellent designer and advisor who I hope to work with again someday.”

“Laura is creative and designs spaces that uniquely fit a particular home and homeowner. Her choices in our home have always drawn oohs and ahhs in terms of functionality and creativity. Working with her is like having a conversation with a friend–she will tell you her opinion, but she will also offer many options to suit your needs and budget. Highly recommend.”

“Laura is experienced, talented, a good listener, cheerful and makes the design solution process very efficient and easy. Her creative design solution for our space was brilliant! (and made us say “why didn’t we think of that?”) ! We were elated with the results and give Laura Bischoff the highest recommendation!”

“I have worked with Laura over the last 25+ years helping her sell a number of the homes she has worked on. I find that she is wonderfully thoughtful, creative, and efficient in her work. I love seeing how she can clearly see the essence of a home and what it can become.”

“We have used Laura Bischoff and Metropolis Design Group for numerous projects and have been immensely pleased by her professionalism, eye to detail, and ability to think outside the box to offer creative solutions to the challenges an almost 100 year old house can present. Not only does she design beautifully and appropriate to the age of the home but she also maximizes the use of every inch of space. We’ve benefited from Laura’s talents in cabinetry and room planning design as well as with paint color, fabric and furniture choices.”

“I’ve hired Laura Bischoff and Metropolis Design Group to design two corporate offices-Both completely different designs. Laura researched our corporate branding message and culture before she began. Our office environment helps us project a bold yet refined corporate image. Clients, vendors and new team members have all commented on the positive corporate environment and energy. Other companies that have been to meetings at Direct Source have asked for her contact information so they could work with her on their upcoming corporate expansions. All of these things have really helped us grow our business significantly.  I strongly recommend Laura. She is very positive and fun to work with. Given the stress that can occur during these large types of projects it’s a real pleasure to have her there to steady the ship.”

“Laura is fabulous to work with! She has the ability to think out of the box, and always can come up with a space solution. Her knowledge of all things in the design/build world is extensive. She is my go-to person whenever I need help with all my decisions!”

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Laura on two build outs for two different companies. Her approach to designing function with form is impeccable —and always well thought through. She asks good questions that make a space work well with a company’s culture and work style. Her taste is always fresh and uniquely inspired from the personality of the company. She has a instinct for pairing culture with aesthetics. I would recommend Laura and her services to help design and manage facility build outs that bring culture to life.”

“I have used Metropolis Design Group to remodel my basement and two bathrooms and have been supremely happy with the service and results. Laura truly understood my aesthetics and how to incorporate my style into a design that is beautiful, functional, and polished. She paid careful attention to what I liked, then created a look that truly exceeded my imagination. Laura has a fabulous eye for design and color and the unique pieces she designed are the highlights of each room. Highly recommend!”

“I contact Laura often for projects big and small and she always has the perfect recommendations. She has an unique flair to her designs that I love – its playful but warm, and but practical but unique.”

“I’ve had the great pleasure of working with Laura Bischoff of Metropolis Design Group on two large projects.  She’s on top of every aspect of a project, has a ton of resources and contacts, and is always proactive, assuring me more than once that everything would turn out just fine… and she was right! Laura would be a valuable asset on any design project.”
