“I found Status Faux in the Port Washington paper not knowing what to expect.  Dwight came to my house armed with a huge selection of custom wall finishes from which to choose.  The workmanship and professionalism were as impressive as the attention to details.  Status Faux finishes are customized to your vision and color scheme.  These are designs that go well beyond the usual sponging effects."

Marlo S., Port Washington, NY

“Who knew that when we blindly called after seeing your ad in North Shore Today that we would be so lucky to find such an honest and trustworthy professional?  Jaded by so many others who have promised so much and delivered so little, or even didn’t return our phone calls, you are a breath of fresh air.  Keep up the great work!”
Donna and Gary R., Flower Hill, NY

“There is nothing faux about Status Faux! Essentially everything that Dwight promises you...you actually get!  Professional, punctual and expertly crafted.  From the proposal - to contract - to the number of days promised to complete the job - to the follow-up... everything was completed as planned.  I've used many contractors and they never live up to all of their promises with regard to starting and finishing the job.  Status Faux was an exception to the rule!  Dwight is trustworthy, patient and professional and he is a true craftsman.  His best critic is himself.  Needless to say, we love what he's done to our fireplace and it really has changed the look and feel of our living room, which is exactly what we set out to accomplish!  I would highly recommended Dwight and Status Faux!!!”

Steven M., Roslyn, NY

“We waited for what seemed like forever to find just the right finish, the right look.  Little did we know that what we were really waiting for was the right artist.  The toughest part was making a decision on what finish to select.  Thank you for giving us not only choices, but opening our eyes to what we had never imagined we could have.  Please use us as a reference.”

Diana and Jack M., Sands Point, NY

“Dwight was wonderful to work with!  Always the consummate professional, he listened attentively to my thoughts and answered them with an array of beautiful samples. I felt assured that our joint vision was exactly what would be reproduced on my walls! His attention to detail and perfection only added to my sense of trust, and his sense of humor made living under drop cloths an (almost) enjoyable experience. I have no hesitancy in using his artistry again, for my own home and those of my interior design clients!”

Betsy G., Great Neck, NY

“Our only complaint – we found you too late.  Had we known about you earlier, we would have made different choices on work already done.  That’s water under the bridge.  We love the work you have done and plan on keeping you busy for awhile.”
Deborah and Alan C., Upper Brookville, NY

“Dwight is a true genius.  He is incredibly talented and his work is impeccable.  The color and textures that Dwight helped me pick are perfect for the rooms in which he worked.  Dwight is trustworthy and dependable, as well as responsive and thorough.  I would recommend him highly.”
Kim W., Great Neck, NY


The following are testimonials from just a few of our satisfied clients.

“We would like to recommend Status Faux for their most impressive work.  As we pondered over how to paint our kitchen, hallways and powder room, we came across the owner of Status Faux, Dwight Weissman.  Dwight showed us a whole new approach to painting, and opened our eyes to many different colors and textures and looks.  His portfolio was extremely helpful in our choices, and Dwight's vast knowledge in the realm of faux painting was indeed very impressive.  When it came time to execute his oeuvre d'art, Dwight was very cooperative with the scheduling, and he worked very well with and around our contractor and various other workers around the house.  We are very demanding when it comes to details and perfection in workmanship, and Dwight was nothing less than outstanding.  Dwight's work has added a unique dimension to our newly renovated house. “
Lori and Paul F. M.D., Great Neck, NY

“We had our kitchen painted by Status Faux.  Dwight brought a huge portfolio of designs from which to choose.  The work was done very satisfactorily both as to design elements and workmanship. We are entirely happy with the result and would recommend Status Faux to anyone considering this type of home design.“

Anita and Jerome B., Great Neck, NY

“Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!  We can’t wait for you to help us with our next project.”
Lisa and Stuart A., Old Westbury, NY

“Your portfolio and your professionalism were the reasons I asked you to do my faux painting and dresser top refinishing.  Your work is very beautiful, imaginative and artistic.  I was impressed with the many steps it took to create the faux finishes you promised.  My bathrooms are exquisite and the looks you created for my furniture pieces are uniquely beautiful.  No one can believe that my armoire is not leather, or that my green china cabinet wasn't aged in the rain.  Thank you so much for delivering what I wanted!!!!”
Paula E.,  Port Washington, NY

“Oh Dwight, where have you been all my life?  Partially kidding… Can’t sufficiently express my satisfaction with my daughter’s new bedroom motif.”
Winnie H., Manhasset, NY

"We thought we knew what we wanted.  We did our homework and scoured design magazines and consulted with a decorator.  It wasn’t until we met you and had the opportunity to see what was possible that we knew that the process had more to it than meets the eye.  Timing is everything.  Had we gone forward with our prior plans, our room would have turned out nicely, but not with the WOW factor that you have brought.  On time and on budget too!  Glad we waited.”
Paulette and Frank M., North Hills, NY

“Thank you for making our home beautification project a delight.  Your expertise was valuable in our planning and decisions, and your personal client service attitude was awesome.  Never have we had as thoroughly pleasant an experience as we had working with you.  We hope and plan to be a source of many referrals.”
Maureen and John B., Hewlett Harbor, NY

“Just wanted to tell you that we absolutely love our bedroom and hall.  Even the bathroom looks so much better.   I’ve been telling everyone about you and your work.  You are not a painter but an artist. You know that I had other painters give us estimates but once I saw your samples I knew you were the one.  Everyone who has seen your work can’t get over the transformation of our rooms. Please feel free to give our names out as a reference to any perspective client.  We will gladly speak with them about you and your work. We thank you again for working things out and helping us make such good decisions. We are so happy with everything you did and can’t thank you enough.”
Ellen and Burt W., Roslyn, NY

“What can I (we) say?  Words don’t do justice to how pleased we are with the work you did.  Rather, make that the entire experience.  From our initial phone conversation, to the meeting at our home, to your proposal, to the sample making process and finally to the masterpiece you created, we cannot begin to express our appreciation.  Most impressive has been your concern for our needs, attention to detail, professional presentation, returning all phone calls, being where you say you will and on time, and treating our house with great respect.  We look forward to the next project, and you can be assured that it will be with no one else but Status Faux.”

Marilyn and Ira W., Garden City, NY

“From our first meeting to discuss the scope of the job to the completion of my project, working with Status Faux was an extremely pleasant experience.  Their goal is to make sure you are happy.  Their work ethics are top notch and the finished project took my breath away.  They do not disappear once the job is one.  They stand behind their work and will be there for you if needed.”
Sharon and Victor K, Jericho, NY

“Amy and I are very happy with all aspects of working with you.  From the first meeting we knew we had the right person for what we wanted done in our home.  Watching a professional like you work was a treat.  I always like to learn about how things are done and your business was as new to me as they come.  Thank you for enhancing our home and making working with you a pleasure.”
Amy and Lou K., East Norwich, NY

“I have known about and seen decorative and faux painting for awhile.  Never considered it for our offices.  Glad I finally did.  Our practice is somewhat exclusive and caters to a predominantly high-end clientele.  We were looking for a truly sophisticated look and feel confident that our decision to go with you was right.  Job well done!”
Sidney F. M.D., FACS, Kings Point, NY

“Not sure who to hug first, you or our designer.  Whoever it is, God bless.  You have a clear, accurate and extraordinary vision.  Let’s talk about more work soon.”
Gloria V., Esq., New York, NY

“The website looks amazing - though it can never do your work justice!  The best testimonial I can give is to let you know I would never be happy with anyone else’s work again!  I can't wait until my furniture arrives and we can collaborate on the living room!”

Andrea T., Roslyn, NY
