"Ivan is a world class interior designer who manifested my dream of creating an Africa-inspired home in Kennebunkport, Maine. Our house, barn and landscape design have been featured in Veranda magazine and the book, “Veranda Retreats.” More significantly, the hard work of making “forever architectural and interior design” decisions was pure joy - thanks to the extraordinary experience of working with Ivan Chatman. I look forward to hiring him again soon to work on TheRetreat-SF.com."
"Ivan Chatman is a world-class designer and manager. Bowley Builders had the pleasure of working with Ivan during a highly complicated and specific installation within a demanding timeframe. Ivan and his team were always professional, team orientated, and motivated for the client. This ethic and direction, coupled with a creative eye and attention to detail, made him a joy to work with on a daily basis. I recommend him strongly for any high-design project or installation."
"I am pleased to offer a recommendation for Ivan Chatman as I have had the pleasure of working with him on a variety of projects over the past five years. Ivan is one of the most talented designers I have worked with and brings an unparalleled range of skills to many project typologies. He is a team player who will go the distance to make sure that every project is completed on time, within budget and exceeds client expectations. I would be happy to provide additional information about Ivan and his work at any time."
