Customer testimonials

"We are extremely tough and discriminating clients. We had worked with three other cabinetry and mill workers before Working Designs and were not happy with the quality of work and attention to detail. We feel extremely blessed to have found Greg Lannan of Working Designs. He rebuilt all of our custom wood work in the original Urth Caffe, Melrose Avenue, as well as our home in Beverly Hills. The Beauty and quality of the work is second to none. Mr. Lannan oversaw every aspect of both projects from conception to installation and all we can say is perfection! It is next to impossible to find this level of local craftsman anywhere anymore. We look forward to enjoying the creativity, to top notch service and unparalleled craftsmanship of Working Designs for many more Urth Caffe projects"

- Jilla and Shallom Berkman, Urth Caffe Founders

"I can't say enough about how wonderful it was working with Greg. He managed to make a complicated design idea that I had a reality. Not only that, he gave me options as to how I could make it a reality. His craftsmanship & reliability are unparalleled. I would (&do) wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone I know."
-Fara Pasarell, Marina Del Ray.

"I've used Working Designs and Greg on three separate occasions to create a new kitchen and wet bar area. Most recently, Greg made an entertainment center for me. I consider myself to be a perfectionist and pay close attention to detail so suffice it to say I am a hard person to please. Each time I've used Greg he has exceeded my expectations and has created masterpieces for me. In working with Greg, it is obvious to me he takes pride in his work and wants to make sure his clients are happy. If that is not enough, Greg is quite reasonable in his pricing and completes his projects on time. I have made several referrals to friends of mine because I know they will be in good hands if they use Greg."

-Mark G. Samara, Los Angeles



"I've worked with Greg many times over the past few years.  He and his team are the very best in terms of design, craftsmanship, and service.  I've been out to his workshop many times and have always been impressed by the beauty of his projects.  His attention to detail is incredible.  Greg designed a large, custom entertainment cabinet to match my existing family room furniture.  He also built a vanity and medicine cabinet for my guest bath.  In my kitchen, he built cabinet's and finished them with an amazing color and glaze.    He's also built a hall linen cabinet and is designing custom cabinetry for my bedroom's closets.  Needless to say, I'm a big fan and highly recommend him.

"Working Designs did an amazing job on our kitchen. They worked closely with our general contractor and granite company and we were very happy with the results. Our kitchen doubled in size and we added brand new high end cabinets and a center island as well. Greg was our go to guy and he is a perfectionist to say the least. He is reliable and also worked with us a little on the price. The quality of wood and staining they used was excellent. We even had a minor issue with one of the cabinets not closing correctly a few weeks ago. We called Greg's cell and he came out himself the next day and fixed in in 5 minutes.
Member Comments: 
I highly recommend them for QUALITY WORK and they were very reliable. I have referred them to two of our friends already, who used them as well and were happy."

"Built a custom-made television and entertainment center - specifically to fit a corner area in my family room - to my specifications.  Also refinished and painted an old piece of furniture in pink for my young daughter's room.
Member Comments: 
Greg, the proprietor, worked with me on sketches.  Gave me a firm quote.  Did everything he said he would do, including delivery and installation of the piece.  Delivered on time and on budget."
-Kevin Davis, Los Angeles
Greg built all my kitchen cabinets about 6 years ago. He did very professional work, using high-quality materials. The communication and services was excellent.
I'm a person that cooks all the time and use the kitchen frequently for cooking, baking, and entertaining, and to this day I am 100% satisfied with the cabinets Greg built for me. I highly recommend Greg's services to friends and family
