STAY AWAY. They are COMPLETELY UNRELIABLE. They will promise you everything you want to here and not deliver anything. Our experience was basically the same as the NYC contractor below. Don't trust them for a minute.
To any potential customer of Anise Studio. Paul Anis, the president of this company, will not deliver the products you purchased and will also not return your money. I would like to share my story below in hopes that I prevent another person from going through the same horrible experience. I purchased over $25,000 in Agape fixtures through Anise Studio in July 2012. After 4 months waiting for part of the fixture package, I found out that due to technical problems in Agape's factory, the manufacturing of these was indefinitely postponed. I requested Anise Studio to send me a credit for these fixtures (over $11,000 in value). My request was cordially accepted, assured I was entitled to the credit and was told this will be taken care of shortly. Six months later, after countless emails, phone calls and even personal visits to the showroom, I received a check from Paul for what he claimed was the full sum of the money he owed me. What I found then was infuriating: the sum of the check he wrote was over $1,500 short of what I was owed. To this date, I am still stuck. Beware: Paul Anis is extremely polite and he will make you believe your problem will be resolved immediately. After a few calls and emails you will find out that you are being blatantly ignored.
