All pricing is based on the scope of the project; WKNDR Design offers flat-rate fees on a project-by-project basis so that our customers know exactly what to expect prior to contract signing for total cost up-front which helps with budgeting and planning. All initial residential design consultations are always free!
Hourly design rates are also available for smaller projects, billed at $75/hour.
All Flat-Rate Fee clients will be presented with a total design fee based on the scope, time frame, and feasibility of their project. A minimum designer retainer fee of $1,500 or 50% of total design fee is due at contract signing, whichever amount is greater. Should the design fee total less than $1,500, 100% of the design fee shall be due at contract signing. All fees are payable via cash, check or card. Please note that standard card processing fees will be added to all online card transactions.

Featured Commercial Project
ROCKTOWN KITCHEN RESTAURANT
INSTALL: SPRING 2017
The client had a need to fit a specific number of booths for seating against the back portion of the restaurant. We designed and created these tufted leather booths as a custom solution. We crafted each by hand, outsourcing the upholstery work to U-FAB in Charlottesville and sourcing the turned wood legs from Osborne Wood Company in Georgia. I also chose the pendants to evoke a sophisticated/vintage feel. We added the 10' high custom sliding barn doors, featuring reclaimed oak, to separate the main dining from the event space and also add more texture into the room.
One of the coolest parts of working with this space was the history. Originally an ice factory, the industrial features have been maintained over the years. We were able to get original black and white photos of the ice factory in high resolution blown up and framed and used them as wall decor throughout the space. I also chose Benjamin Moore's Yorktowne Green as the wall color help bring some moody tones to the space.
We used local barn wood salvaged from a farm in the Charlottesville area on the barn doors and seat surrounds. The other wood was new lumber that we torched to give it an aged look. Industrial plumbing pipes were added to the tops of the booths to give some height to each without being obstructive as well as add an industrial element to the design of the space. All custom work completed in conjunction with Brandon Comisford of Comisford Construction in Charlottesville.
