Paul and Paul LLP

Val and Paul (Lionfish Development) are extraordinary. We engaged them to complete a top-to-bottom renovation of our near century home.

Their knowledge and expertise vastly surpassed our expectations. The budget and time-frames remained true to form throughout the process and the craftsmanship was impeccable.

From the initial design stage to the detailed finishing they were dedicated and skillful, while at all times honest, patient and extremely helpful. We would unequivocally highly recommend their services to anyone at anytime.

We chose to work with LionFish Design for our home renovation because Val and Paul have an outstanding work ethic, great attention to detail and they deliver on time and on budget.

They have an amazing sense of space and style, and bring their exquisite taste to both classic and contemporary design projects. Plus, their team of trades are professional, courteous and a pleasure to have in our home. We are extremely pleased with the results and we will continue to use them in the future, as well as refer them to our friends and clients.

The Lionfish team led by Val and Paul are nothing short of miracle workers. I do not have enough superlatives to bestow upon their work nor could I have more praise or admiration for their remarkable vision, skills, dedication and management capabilities.

Val, Paul and the wonderful craftsmen who work with them completely transformed my 1910 Moore Park property. The results were spectacular. The whole process was so beautifully handled I felt completely confident every step of the way that I had been very lucky to have them take on my project. Val, Paul and the team are always positive and tackle any challenge with an enormous breadth of experience and good grace.

Val and Paul took my large old house and renewed it inside and out. Their fantastic design skills combine impeccable taste with enormous practicality. The new floorplans were so cleverly devised to incorporate every practical requirement with such outstanding new use of space. They are both masters of construction techniques, requirements and latest advances, and are up to date with all the latest building regulation requirements, which can be a minefield to navigate, especially in Toronto.

Val and Paul source the most wonderful finishes and fixtures to suit your budget. They are relentless when it comes to the standards they set. The team they bring are a joy to work with and seasoned masters in their respective trades. It was clear how dedicated the team is to Val and Paul. They all work so efficiently together. The work behind the walls was as fastidious and carefully carried out as the immaculate finishes applied to the transformed spaces.

Most remarkable of all was how meticulously the planning and timing was set. They set an ambitious goal from start to finish to suit my needs and absolutely delivered on every aspect: quality, design, construction integrity, standard of finishes, timing and cost.

It is utterly rare to have all those things come together. Lionfish did it. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

I have collaborated with Valery & Paul for over 2 years now and find their work outstanding. Their vision to take something old and run down to something new and beautiful is most impressive.

They are easy to work with and always remain positive in the challenges of renovating & building. I am amazed at how quickly and efficiently they are able to create their transformations from old to spectacular. They use quality materials and don’t take short cuts or skimp unlike many others in their field.

I look forward to every new project with Lionfish Design.
