I have been in the commercial development business well over 30 years. Needless to say I have utilized the services of innumerable design professionals over the years. I hired Leigh Sperling (IBL Enterprises, Inc.) in 2004 to complete all common area design for an office building I was finishing up in Columbia, MD. She joined with my design team and immediately had a tremendously positive impact on the project. She not only specified the design, but also acquired all requisite materials (tile, carpet, wallcoverings, art etc.), had them installed, personally supervised all aspects and delivered on time and on budget! Since then she has worked with me on numerous additional office building projects (some award winning) and has consistently delivered outstanding results on all fronts. I would highly recommend Leigh for any and all of your design requirements. Her work is timeless, sophisticated, top quality and always beautiful…..Her projects speak for themselves.

I worked with Leigh Sperling initially on an extensive interior design project for a large office space for my company's headquarters. Leigh was always great to work with – she’s very responsive and diligent and would visit our site regularly to test different concepts and get a better understanding of our goals and requirements. She has deep experience and is always up to date on the latest design trends and products. She ultimately designed ~30,000 sqft of office space for us, on three different floors, which (at our request) all had slightly distinct styles and we are extremely happy with how they turned out. I would highly recommend Leigh for designing a new office space or improving an existing space – she is fantastic.

Leigh is one of the premier designers in the Greater Washington/Baltimore Metropolitan Area and she blends a creative and unique eye with a practical sense that allows her varied clients to benefit from her vast knowledge and resources. Leigh is the perfect bridge between a client and their contractor because she understands the process and is always there to help guide and resolve any matter until the project is completed to everyone's satisfaction.

I am using Leigh Sperling to help me with the build-out of my new office space. Leigh has been wonderful to work with. This is the first time I have ever undergone a project of this size and she has been so helpful in guiding me through the process-not just with design ideas but working with the general contractor and landlord. Leigh's design sense is wonderful. Her suggestions with making a workspace user friendly are spot on. Leigh also works within the budget which is rare. She never tries to up sell me which I appreciate. The contractors she works with to do millwork, carpet, wall coverings are skilled craftsmen. The other important aspect of working with a designer is communication. I have never had an issue with getting a return phone call or email which was helpful for many of the deadlines that had to be met.
I would highly recommend Leigh Sperling and plan to use her in the future for any future design needs that I may have.

Fabulous, very talented, creative eye for color and design .... and most important always there to assist for me. IBL Enterprises, Inc. provided me with exceptional services. I have used Leigh, owner of her company, on multiple hair salon projects. My newest salon project Leigh referred me the construction company to do the build out and together we worked hard to meet my deadline. Some of the services included helping me with design improvements, overseeing the construction process, specifying and purchasing flooring, selecting a paint/wall covering scheme, working with her lighting designer which I now realize was critical to the project, specifying bathroom fixtures, mill work laminate and stone selection, furniture selection and purchasing, using existing furniture and reupholstering, signage design and purchasing and the list continues. I can't tell you how much Leigh helped me! I am thrilled with the results.

Leigh Sperling, owner of IBL Enterprises, Inc., has worked with us during the past 14 years on several of our offices. Leigh has a special talent for intuitively understanding the atmosphere and design her clients desire to achieve. Leigh worked with the architects and contractors planning and implementing aesthetic as well as functional needs for us while always keeping the budget in mind. As an interior designer, Leigh was responsible not only for the office color scheme, selection of fabric, wallcoverings, art, furniture, reupholstering, millwork, flooring selections but her company also performed purchasing and installation for many of the scopes listed. I may also add that Leigh helped us understand the blue prints as well and worked with the construction company and subcontractors to develop a schedule that would work with our busy offices. She was always present to oversee her trades people. Her company was a joy to work with....from beginning to end!
