Our Workmanship

They’ve been talking about us and we are humbled by their kind words!

“We chose Cathy and her Team to customized our furniture for our new house. We saw them from their website, the furniture shown was just what we were looking for the refurbishment of our home. The service we received was excellent from our initial enquiry right through to the fitting of the furniture. We are very impressed with the high quality of the tables and chairs and the standard of workmanship and they are even better than we could have expected. I would have no hesitation in recommending Cathy and her team to other potential customers and would definitely use them again for another similar project.” – A & A Mendoza


“I have 2 girls with an age gap of almost 8 years. When I had my second l, my eldest suddenly realized that she needs her personal space. However, it was a challenge coz we are only living in a 3 bedroom condo. The 3rd room is allotted for our nannies. Cathy, helped us execute the design that will address our concern despite some limitations. My babies are enjoying each others company in their girly room while they are not deprived of their “Me Time”. She had 2 more projects with me after that and I’m equally happy. 😄” – C. Sapnu


 “CPS is very transparent and will definitely work around your budget. Revisions are easily done and the entire team is available 24/7. They helped us achieve our dream vacation house.” – Mr. and Mrs. R. Lirio


“It is our pleasure to recommend CPS Design and Build. It’s people like them who made life easier for us in making our Milano unit exactly the way we want it. Their dedication and hardwork are both manifested in the finished project: our home today. They were able to maximize such a small space and their Murphy Beds are truly a masterpiece. We are exceptionally happy clients here.” - L & M Hartland
