Distressing and Aging Treatments are available for any Wood Molding and Cabinets.

Fine Art Wall Murals are commissioned in cooperation with Crosby~Amblard Studios. Classic Wall Works approaches each and every project with an emphasis on originality and creativity.

Classic Wall Works has been featured in various Decorating Magazines such as New Jersey Home & Style, Design NJ, The Faux Finisher and Faux Effects World Magazine. Primarily we concentrate on Specialty Finishes that can be applied to walls, ceilings, floors, cabinets, furniture, medallions, doors, windows, trim. In reality, anything that you can imagine or desire can be transformed into a work of art. Our Professional Finishes are all custom made and custom colored.

We collectively push the envelope in this profession. Whether we apply a Faux Finish, design and create a Mural, work with Venetian Plaster or Textures, all our work is unique and custom. Each project is approached with professionalism and with a working knowledge of all that is possible in a project. Each project undertaken is worked on by Ziggy. No outside contractors are sub-contracted and used. As the artist that designs the project, I am the one that will execute the project from beginning to end. With this in mind, Classic Wall Works prefers to accept smaller-scale and intimate projects such as bathrooms, kitchens, kitchen cabinets, standard sized rooms and specialty finishes on panels, columns, mantels and doors rather than large scale projects that require groups of workers.

Ziggy has studied and trained under some of the best artists and craftsmen in the field, both nationally and abroad. Commissioning Classic Wall Works to take on a project allows you to take advantage of our ability to create unique finishes that are second to none, in a one on one enviornment.

What does a Consultation consist of?
All estimates for Custom Decorative and Faux Finishes require an on site consultation. Our consultation appointments are done on site and are a one on one process that generally lasts about one and one half hours. During that time we review and discuss your projects goals and examine the look and feel of the future appearance of your room. Taking into account all the elements of your room, the overall look of the house and adjoining rooms, the rooms character in relation to it's woodwork and layout, the style of furniture and it's fabric patterns, window dressings, floor covering and your personal input of your desired goals as well as ours. We then begin the process of going through our extensive portfolios and compare various patterns and looks of wall finishes in relation to your room.
Once we have narrowed ideas down to several possible choices that we believe will work, we will then have the ability to draw up a contract as to the cost of the project and the approximate amount of time it would take to complete. Available project dates are included as well. We are generally booked 2 months in advance.

Due to the rising cost of gas and amount of time spent for each consultation, a fee for the initial on site consultation is $100 for properties located within the state of New Jersey. For properties located in the New York (this includes Manhattan), Connecticut and Pennsylvania areas the fee for the consultation is $150. Should you commission Classic Wall Works for your project, your consultation fee is credited back to you upon contract approval.

Once a proposal is agreed to and projects are contracted with a 50% deposit submitted, we begin the process of making custom colored samples in large format, allowing you an opportunity to visually see the wall finish and how it relates to your room and your ideals. Since all samples are custom colored, we can tweak the balance of colors as neccessary and achieve the perfect balance and feel for your interior. Up to 2 custom samples are included in the proposal if needed in addition to our extensive portfolio selection, with additional samples requiring a $50 charge per sample. Classic Wall Works retains the rights to all Sample Boards and concepts associated with them. The fee for sample boards, in relation to the consultation cost and any additional custom samples, are for the creative process, rendering and design ideas of various sample boards. The finished Sample Boards are retained by and are the sole property of Classic Wall Works.

Before our Consultation, what information should I have?
Before each consultation there are several important points of information you should have available.
If the room is fairly complete as far as furniture and decoration, we can base our designs on the existing pieces and style in the room. If it is not yet complete, swatches of fabric, furniture pictures, carpet choice, wood, accessories etc. are important to have. With these pieces, the color scheme, and the look and feel of the room we can then come up with ideas for possible finishes.
Also important is that you have an approximate range of the room's budget as well as it's square footage. Knowing your budget will narrow down the finish type and style that can be applied, as well as the amount of rendering in murals. Many times clients want to know how much a finish in an average size room can cost. The answer is anywhere from $1,200 to $12,000. Finishes and Murals cover a wide price range. Hand Sanded 5 layer Venetian Plasters that can run in the teens per square foot, though stunning and classic, would not be realistic to a $1,200 budget in an average sized room. Since we have a very large selection of samples in our portfolio, literally hundreds, knowing your budget can save a fair amount of time and often avoids confusion.
