The partners and studio team of C2 Limited Design Associates pride themselves on their unique commitment to ensuring our clients serve as an integral member of the project team. The following is a partial list of clients and testimonials offered as a demonstration of our firm’s ability to be responsive throughout the entire design and construction process.

“After an extensive search for an interior design firm, we chose C2 Limited Design Associates as our partner to assist in the development, enhancement, and execution of our vision of a fresh new classic interior for our clubhouse as part of a two-phase major clubhouse expansion and renovation at Old Westbury Golf and Country Club. C2 Limited Design Associates repeatedly demonstrated their ability and willingness to listen, collaborate and create solutions that are exciting, tasteful, and appropriate, and they were delivered on time and within budget. They have consistently exceeded our expectations, and a pleasure to work with.” Jeffrey Sands, President Old Westbury Golf and Country Club Old Westbury, New York

C2’s superb design, furniture selection and installation created a communal outdoor “scene” that kept our members dining and socializing for hours on end, it turned out to be just a lovely spot. C2 also selected materials that were easy to maintain - fabrics treated with the latest sun and water repelling technology, hard wood mahogany tables and chairs that were easy to care for.” Gerald Giarla, General Manager Turks & Caicos Sporting Club, Ambergris Cay

“It is rare to find a design team that is equally as talented in budget and logistical coordination as they are in color palette and furniture selection. C2 Limited Design Associates has what is it takes from “soup to nuts.” They put their heart and soul into every project they have worked on for The Greenbrier Sporting Club and have never let us down. Craig and Christina are the perfect complement to one another, and their partnership ensures all details are addressed before the project is complete. I look forward to working with them on many more projects in the future.” Larry Klein, General Manager Greenbrier Sporting Club White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia

“The Yale Club has made significant renovations in the past ten years, and we have had the opportunity to work with a number or architects and designers. Craig and Christina’s team have become a favorite. Their design work is excellent, and their dedication and teamwork has been unmatched. I cannot recommend them highly enough.” Michael Hennessy, President The Yale Club of New York City New York, New York

“On behalf of my entire leadership team, it gives me great honor to fully endorse the services of C2 Limited Design Associates. Craig Smith and Christina Romann are true professionals that have far exceeded expectations from a time, financial, and creative perspective. Their ‘make it happen’ attitude creatively turns common project related problems into ‘world class opportunities.’” “Mr. Smith, Ms. Romann, and team are truly a joy to work with and will quickly gain your loyalty, as they have mine. Please feel free to contact me at anytime should I be able to provide any further information during your selection process.” Casey Lavin, Vice President of Food and Beverage The Greenbrier Hotel and Golf Resort White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia



“C2 Limited Design Associates are true professionals. They are detailed, dedicated and have always been responsive to our needs. To top it all, Craig has always been proactive in making sure things are completed to our satisfaction- always on time and on budget!” “The Club has lived through several upgrades and renovations over the past twelve years and worked with numerous architects, designers, and contractors. Craig and his dedicated team of professionals at C2 Limited Design Associates are unmatched!” John Samayoa, Director of Club House Operations The Yale Club of New York City New York, New York

“C2 Limited Design Associates was a pleasure to work with. Not only do they have vast experience in design work for upscale hospitality facilities like The Greenbrier Sporting Club, but they are also a down to earth team who can easily be reasoned with on matters of cost, schedule, and/or constructability. The quality and beauty of Craig and Christina’s work speaks for itself.” Carl Agsten, President Agsten Construction Company Charleston West Virginia

“The existing historical conditions and phasing of the renovations [of The Hotel Hershey] presented a variety of challenges during construction. C2 Limited was consistently responsive and proactive in addressing the contractor’s questions. The team also worked together to provide cost saving options without any delay in the schedule. The relationship built by the project team members is directly related to the success of this project. C2 Limited is a professional organization and understands the commitment to deliver a project.” “The finished lobby and shops are both inviting and functional. The use of lighting, millwork, stain glass ceilings, and material selections makes the most of the interior spaces. The contractors, employees, and guests alike all comment on the remarkable detail and overall design of the project. High Construction and the subcontractors look forward to the next project with C2 Limited.” Daniel Pietropola, Project Manager High Construction Company Lancaster, Pennsylvania

“Committed and professional, Craig and Christina’s team provided expert supervision, consistency and quality. They were able to easily grasp what we required, and their presentation was right on. We could not have asked for a better solution to our décor and furnishings challenge.” Tom Downing, General Manager Trump International Hotel and Tower New York, New York

“As one endeavors into a major project there are challenges that will develop. This project was no exception. The key to the success of a project is how these challenges are handled. C2 Limited assisted with solving each of our challenges in a professional, timely, and positive manner so that the project was completed on time and with quality result.” “The Hotel Hershey has been transformed with rave reviews the past summer when most of the facilities were opened.” Robert J. De Fiore, Managing Director of Construction Hershey Entertainment & Resorts Hershey, Pennsylvania
