Hear first-hand reviews on our clients’ experiences working with ICE.
BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY HOME SERVICES
“We have partnered with ICE on over 23 BHHS Southern California real estate agents offices since 2014 as well as our San Diego corporate headquarters in 2018. We have used other dealerships but none come close to the superior level of service and attention to detail of Alysse, Cheyenne and their team at ICE. Working with the ICE Family makes the challenge of managing multiple, complex projects much more enjoyable.
- Dave Watson, Director of Facilities
"With ICE, we hired more than a furniture dealership; we hired a workplace strategist that brings context to utility. They push beyond established ideas to create something new and fresh for each client. They ask questions which make us question our answers; they strive for excellence. ICE incorporates more traditional furniture with the infusion of raw, exquisitely designed handcrafted furniture made by local artisans, manufactured in San Diego. This marriage of cost effective functionality with inspiration commands attention and synthesizes everything together. An ICE environment transcends the ordinary and creates an immediate emotional connection.”

FERGUSON PAPE BALDWIN ARCHITECTS
“We explored a wide range of furniture solutions for our office and did not find the perfect fit in a standard panel system. ICE recommended a custom case goods solution that is made locally and was below our budget. They managed the ordering and delivery of this product to ensure it was integrated into our tight construction schedule. ICE had great suggestions for design-oriented, cost effective ancillary furnishings that we could not have found on our own. In every situation, their focus was on finding the right product to meet our needs and to complement the architecture. It was a pleasure to work with the folks at ICE; they are great team players. We highly recommend them to our clients and colleagues.”
- Andrew Darragh, Vice President
CAL STATE SAN MARCOS
“Ms. Forsythe and her team proved to be the correct solution. The McMahan House project required custom designed furniture and materials as well as standard solutions from vendors such as Encore and Versteel. Having all these options available through one vendor helped facilitate the procurement process…From the initial concept meeting through final mock-up working with DeLinda and her team has been a pleasure and we recommend ICE for any project you may be considering.”
- Diane K. Malone, Campus Architect
SAN DIEGO REGIONAL EDC
"Innovative Commercial Environments brought life to our office space. Our stunning reception desk and conference table reflect an authentic San Diego vibe without compromising function or our budget. Telling the region’s story is our business and our passion, and with guidance from ICE we now have a more creative environment reflecting our values and our vision for San Diego."
- Lauree Sahba, Chief Operating Officer
“We had very little time to select a furniture provider. ICE immediately realized our time constraints and responded quickly. Every fabric, finish, design layout and furniture solution was carefully and quickly hand selected. We were able to test drive chairs and see product installations within days. ICE provided us with budgets, revised budgets and revised budgets so we knew exactly what our costs would be during the evaluation process. It made the decision to choose ICE as our furniture supplier very easy. We are thrilled with our beautiful and unique office environment and pleased to recommend ICE to our friends and business associates.”
- Linda Erickson, Vice President
“Our furniture budget was severely impacted by unanticipated construction costs in our office remodel. ICE came to the rescue. I thought used furniture was going to be our only option. ICE passionately presented a case to not compromise the integrity of the project. The innovative solutions created by ICE were a custom approach that reflected the Hobie lifestyle and maintained our low budget. Now, I cannot imagine our project with anything but this custom, locally made furniture. It is amazing!”
- Doug Skidmore, President
FATHER JOE'S VILLAGES
“Father Joe’s Villages prides itself on innovation and contemporary thinking in the evolution of a model to serve the homeless. As such, Father Joe’s Villages approached ICE to create a contemporary furniture environment within the 15th & Commercial project that blends with the mission statement of the organization. It was important to engage a firm that was committed to forward thinking and also is a good community partner. The ICE team spent countless hours creating a furniture program that was both affordable and functional that met the unique goals of the project. The results speak for themselves and the furniture will support the staff and clients of Father Joe’s Villages for many years to come.”
- Bill Bostad, Vice President
THOMAS JEFFERSON SCHOOL OF LAW
"The products they represent exemplify well-made American products that are environmentally sensitive and meet SCS and/or Greenguard Certification. Long warranties are especially vital to the School as this furniture must be able to withstand intensive utilization. Our factory representatives from ICE were consistently available and helpful. Most significant was the extraordinary ICE team effort … The attention to detail, ability to communicate quickly and availability at any time or day was required as our deadline was very short to complete this ever changing project. We applaud the ICE team and would recommend them for future projects.
- Rudolph C. Hasl, Dean and President
