During the construction of the Blue Martini Jazz Cafe we were introduced to Chris from Contemporary House. This company specializes in Venetian Plaster. We did the plaster to three feature walls in the restaurant - Chris is a true artist and did a fantastic job - we often receive compliments. The look is very modern with a European flavour. We can't thank Chris enough for a job well done!

Contemporary House is a Venetian plaster and Architectural finishing company based in Vancouver.

My wife and I found that Chris was a very creative, talented and dedicated plaster specialist. We described the design idea for feature walls in our Vancouver apartment to Chris and, although he hadn't produced this precise effect for any previous client, he returned with a sample board that worked so perfectly (on his first attempt!), that we were quite astounded. When completing the work he communicated extremely well concerning all practical issues, presented us with no surprises with respect to costs and left the worksite neat and clean each day. Despite some initial challenges with arriving at the desired result, Chris continued to rework the plaster feature walls until in the end we were all quite thrilled with the elegant and dramatic result. We truly appreciate his professionalism, talent and dedication.

"We hired Chris to do some walls for us in Venetian plaster for our furniture showroom. The result blew us away. Not only is Chris a highly experienced technician/builder he is also an artist with an incredible good eye for design. I especially love that the plaster is a natural product and will last for centuries. He was such a pleasure to work with and left us with an incredible work of art. I highly recommend him. Thank you Chris!"
